CEO Comments

 

Ron Schad, President and CEO of Essex stated, “In the fourth quarter of 2012, we continued to experience a gradual improvement in our business. We have seen increases in activity in most of our end markets on a year over year basis, with the largest increases in the power and petrochemical sectors. The expected duration of new crawler crane orders year to date through December has increased by 9.6% compared to the prior year’s orders. The increased duration is providing greater revenue visibility and if this trend continues, is likely to have a positive impact on utilization. Utilization on our hydraulic heavy lift crawler cranes, which represent approximately 70% of the value of our crawler crane fleet and 50% of our entire fleet, equaled 63.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2012. These cranes have a higher lifting capacity and typically command a rental rate nearly twice that of traditional crawler cranes. We are selectively increasing rental rates for certain categories of our heavy lift crawler fleet.
