InSeptember of 2012 we were honored to be given the opportunity to showcase our skill and professionalism when we were chosen to perform the lift of the Space Shuttle Endeavor. Maxim Crane Works was selected by NASA’s contractor The United Space Alliance to be the sole crane service provider for unloading the Space Shuttle Endeavor at Los Angeles LAX Airport in preparation for transport to its final resting place at the California Science Center.

Maxim’s fleet contained the specific makes and models of cranes on NASA’s short list of cranes approved to perform this type of lift. Wealso possessed the crane service professionals capable of successfully executing this sophisticated lift.

We provided a Demag CC2800,a Liebherr LTM 1250-6.1 and a crew consisting of multiple operators, oilers, engineers, safety professionals, and operational vice presidents to complete this historic liftflawlessly .
