ALL Tower Crane Names Sam Moyer New GM

Outgoing GM Clay Thoreson retires after five decades in crane business

SUPPLIER NEWS - The ALL Family of Companies has promoted Sam Moyer to general manager of ALL Tower Crane, LLC. Moyer takes the reins from Clay Thoreson, who has retired after a long and illustrious career in the crane business that spanned parts of five decades.

Sam Moyer New GM at ALL Crane

Moyer shared a special relationship with Thoreson, who hired Moyer as an application engineer in 2014. During the job interview, as Thoreson shared his own reasons for loving the industry so much, it ignited something within Moyer and solidified his resolve to leave behind a 10-year career as a structural engineer.

“Clay mentioned there’s always a new challenge,” said Moyer. “When he described the pace of the work, the problem-solving in the shop and in the field, it resonated with me. And working the last four years with Clay was like going to tower crane grad school.”

Moyer is looking ahead to the future of ALL Tower Crane. Opportunities include expanding the division’s role as an engineering hub and developing streamlined processes to address service needs.

Continuing to modernize the fleet also remains an ongoing commitment, as illustrated by the Tower division’s recent acquisition of 11 new Manitowoc/Potain cranes. The product mix includes IGO T85A (6t/6.6 USt) and IGO T130 (8t/8.8 USt) self-erecting tower cranes, MDT 219 J10 (10t/11 USt) flat-top Crane Control System (CCS) City tower cranes, MDT 389 L16 (16t/17.6 USt) flat-top CCS tower cranes, MD 509-M20 (20t/22.0 USt) conventional top slewing tower cranes with CCS, and an MR 298-H24 (24t/26.5 USt) luffing jib tower crane.

“These additional cranes address a variety of needs for our customers, allowing them to successfully navigate projects with large and small footprints,” said Moyer. “It’s also a harbinger of the demand we are seeing for vertical construction. Central Florida, the Carolinas, Ohio, Chicago, Tennessee — we are seeing big demand in many of our core regions. Our aim is to be the only source customers need to consider for their tower crane needs.”
