Quinto Crane Hire
Quinto Crane Hire was established after a buyout by the Norwich group in 1977 by Ivor Kiddle who still manages the organisation to date. Notable projects for Quinto Crane Hire have included the removal of "The Bells of St. Mary’s" in Cambridge and the Balsall Common Windmill restoration project. The organisation boasts over one hundred qualified crane operators and personnel.
The organisation states that its aim is "to continuously improve safe working practice within the construction and related industries by providing assured high levels of value and service." The organisation appeared in the trade publication "Contract Journal" in 2007.
