Massachusetts Service Center Relocates to New Facility

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altec is excited to announce that our Massachusetts Service Center has moved to a new location. The new service center, located at 10 Fortune Drive, provides a complete range of repair and maintenance work as well as Altec's fully comprehensive preventative maintenance inspections.

It consists of 16 truck service bays in a drive-through design. Each bay is 22 feet wide by 50 feet deep for a total shop floor of 17,600 square feet.

Four bridge cranes were installed on two rails, each with twin 7.5 ton trolleys, allowing a 15-ton picking capacity at any point in the shop.
