(CENTREVILLE, Va.) Jan. 25, 2016 -The SC&R Foundation has released a new five-minute, high-definition video to help member companies of the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) recruit employees to the industry. The video explains that, depending on factors such as background and experience, workers can earn annual salaries ranging from $40,000 to $200,000.
“The Foundation and its Board are very excited about this project,” said SC&R Foundation President Stephanie Bragg. “It will help us reach so many people who might otherwise never realize how many good-paying jobs that really matter are available. We see it as a great snapshot of what the crane and rigging and specialized trucking industry has to offer.”
Among professionals that provide candid testimonials are crane operators, drivers and engineers involved with transporting, lifting and positioning oversize/overweight objects that are “key components to the world’s energy, construction and even sports industries.” These words of wisdom come from nine valued employees at Perkins STC; Precision Heavy Haul; Southern Industrial Constructors, Inc.; and Rossco Crane & Rigging.
Interspersed with the testimonials is dramatic footage of jobs underway, provided courtesy of 13 SC&RA Member Companies: Alaska Crane Ltd.; Barnhart; Bill’s Mobile Crane Service, Inc.; Bragg Companies; Contractors Cargo Company; Deep South Crane and Rigging, LLC; Mountain Crane Service; Palletized Trucking, Inc.; Perkins STC, Precision Heavy Haul, Inc.; Rossco Crane and Rigging Inc.; Southern Industrial Constructions, Inc./Southern Crane; and Trinity Logistics Group, Inc.
