Western Pacific Crane & Equipment Establishes Facility in Hawaii
Western Pacific Crane & Equipment (WPCE) is pleased to announce a new facility in Kapolei, Hawai’i in order to better meet the equipment and maintenance needs of customers in the Pacific Rim region. WPCE is an authorized distributor for Manitowoc, Grove and National Boom Truck that is expanding rapidly throughout the Pacific Rim, the West Coast of the United States and Western Canada.
“We bring decades of knowledge and experience in heavy equipment gained from our sister company, Walter Payton Power Equipment, one of the leading Manitowoc Crane distributors in the US,” said Robert Johnson, president of WPCE. “Walter Payton Power Equipment has set the standard for sales and service in the industry, and we are applying the same basic principles at Western Pacific. Foremost is our commitment to building strong relationships with our customers and always striving to exceed their expectations.”
The new WPCE facility will offer regional sales, maintenance, and parts distribution for our customers in Hawaii, Guam and the Marshall Islands. The grounds will feature a full-service shop and almost an acre of yard space in the Campbell Industrial Park. In addition to Manitowoc, Grove and National Crane equipment sales, Western Pacific will provide these customers with a modern parts center and state-of-the-art service bay staffed with factory-trained technicians.
Dennis Piatek has been named the Branch Manager of the new WPCE Hawaii facility. “I am pleased to have joined Western Pacific Crane and Equipment a year ago and to have the opportunity to continue representing the premier leader in lift equipment - Manitowoc Crane Group,” he said. “As part of the Lanco Group of Companies, WPCE has demonstrated their commitment to the Hawaiian ‘Ohana’ with their dedication to their customers in the Pacific Rim region”, says Piatek. “I look forward to continuing working hard for our Hawaiian, Guam and Marshall Islands customers to fulfill their lifting and service needs.”
