Spydercrane Rentals & Sales in Pittsburgh, PA - Deals in “Steel City”

446 bridges, 300+ steel-related businesses, 30 skyscrapers, and 9 Fortune 500 companies; Pittsburgh has been built to stand the test of time. In the last 30 years, that foundation has been put to the test.

But change is in the air. Pittsburgh drew a line in the sand and said, “we go forward.” Plans are made and are being put in the motion. And the city is ripe for growth.

Great Lakes Lifting is reveling in the opportunity to have our cranes take part in the growth.

Pittsburgh’s re-established business growth

Once known for smog and fog, “The ‘Burgh” is now hitting top magazine lists as both a travel destination ( and a place to live . A 2014 report by the National Bureau of Economic Research listed Pittsburgh as the 2nd best city for intergenerational economic mobility: big words that mean it’s the second best place to follow one’s dreams. With employers ranging from Google & Apple to steel companies, the redevelopment of Pittsburgh should position the city for positive growth for generations. All this makes “Steel City,” ripe for construction growth.
