Queens, NY Tempco Glass Fabrication has recently enhanced its delivery service with the acquisition of a new boom truck. The new vehicle, a 2017 Freightliner flatbed with a rear-mounted Hiab boom crane, allows Tempco to deliver greater quantities and larger glass units to a broad range of job sites in the extended New York metro area.
“With our new boom truck, Tempco can now deliver and quickly off load more glass directly to customer facilities and jobsites,” said Johnson Chen, general manager for Tempco. “The truck’s capacity and features greatly enhance our service abilities, especially for high volume orders.”
The new Tempco truck features a 2017 Freightliner Model M2-106 12’-6” flatbed chassis with removable glass racks. The rear-mounted boom crane is supplied by international equipment manufacturer Hiab, with US headquarters in Perrysburg, OH. The boom reach extends to 34’-9” and up to 42’ with manual extensions, while lifting capacity ranges from almost 9,000 lbs. to 2,300 lbs. The crane lift height is over 40’ which allows loads to be delivered above ground level. The unit is controlled with Hiab’s HiDuo radio remote control system, with automatic speed control and horizontal damping, ensuring precise efficient handling of glass loads.
The new boom truck expands Tempco’s current fleet of two standard glass trucks and extends its delivery area to a 200-mile radius from its Queens, New York facility. “We have delivered glass to job sites as far as Maryland,” said Chen. “We’re making it even more convenient for all our glazing, fenestration and curtain wall trade customers.”
Launched in 2013, Tempco has grown rapidly with new equipment, capabilities, production space, and capacity. The company has supplied glass for major notable new construction projects as well as small boutique properties and is becoming one of the top glass fabricators in the New York area.
