Monstrous Sarens Crane in Chandler Arizona

“Nothing too heavy….nothing too high for this monstrous Sarens crane that did major heavy lifting during construction of the Intel computer chip fabrication plant in Chandler Arizona. Transported by ships from the Sarens family owned company in Belgium to California, the 155 containers of crane parts and sections were then loaded onto semi trucks and delivered to Arizona.
