Adam learned the tools of the trade at Universal Cranes Ballina, where his family owns and operates the local Ballina branch. After 10 years in the cabs of frannas, slew cranes and crawler cranes, Adam did a stint at Universal Cranes HQ in Brisbane. He eagerly put his hand up for the Gladstone Branch Manager role, relocating to Gladstone in early 2014. Adam is now responsible for managing all sales and operations, planning and delivery of crane hire jobs, and preparation of lift studies.
