Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. Celebrates American Heart Month by Aiming to Keep Employees Healthy

As your one-stop shop for crane rental and logistical services near New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. strives to offer as much support as it can to both its employees and customers. In celebration of February and American Heart Month, we want to spread awareness of employee health and well-being; and how that makes all the difference for our company.

American Heart Month in February

Although it isn’t always discussed in the context of hydraulic cranes and construction, American workers do suffer from heart disease at an alarming rate. According to a study by the American Heart Association, a quarter of the deaths in the United States, every year, are the direct results of heart disease. It’s for this reason that Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. takes a proactive approach to its employees’ health.

Optimizing the Health of our Company

Here at Thackray Crane Rental, Inc., our full-time Safety and Risk Management Director, Mark W. Thackray, ensures that our employees maintain optimal health. Mandating regular physicals, along with health and wellness policies, Mark sees that every employee utilizes and optimizes their healthcare and medical services. Ultimately, we recognize that our employees exist as more than one of our greatest assets: they’re an extension of the larger Thackray family.

The Extended Thackray Family

With our roots as a 3rd generation family-owned and operated company, our company bonds as a larger whole—an extended family with the same values, communal ties, and concerns.

Being a Thackray employee is about honesty, integrity, and trust. Since the days of our founders, we’ve instilled values like these throughout our organization and in all of our contracts. It’s a firm belief and personal philosophy that our employees and our customers deserve the best that’s in our power to offer them.

We apply this belief by ensuring that we obey safety regulations concerning our employees and our equipment; that we train our operators and enforce a sense of duty, courtesy, and discipline.
Local community involvement is just as much of a part of being at Thackray, as we cultivate our ties outside of the organization—supporting business partners, fundraisers, loyal customers, and staff however we can.

Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. Supporting the Kicks4Chris Foundation in 2018

Since our earliest days hauling tractors, trailers, and cranes wherever customers and communities have needed them, Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. has stood for more than crane rentals in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. In fact, since 1947, we’ve continued to make philanthropy and community outreach some of our highest priorities.

Today, we would like to kick off the New Year by proudly and loudly supporting the efforts of the local non-profit organization, Kicks4Chris Foundation.

The Origin of the Organization

Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. has always sought to support communities in NJ, PA, and DE in all ways that it can. When we first heard about the Kicks4Chris Foundation, its mission resonated with us and our hearts went out to the Stern family. In 2015, the Foundation was established in memory of Chris Stern, the son of our cousin Carole (Cassalia) Stern. Chris, who was diagnosed at the age of 21 with sarcoma, spent six years of his life fighting against the disease.

Despite the complication of severe heart disease brought on by immunotherapy, Chris was able to push his sarcoma into remission. Avoiding a risky heart transplant, he pushed through, going on to lead the James Madison University Relay for Life. During these years, he also worked with the City of Hope, making it his personal mission to befriend and support others fighting their own battles against cancer and sarcoma.

It was in the summer of 2014, just as Chris’s cancer returned, that he and his family halted all of the chemotherapy and radiation, turning to alternative treatments. After a consultation with a Dr. Breelyn Wilky, they learned about the medical potential of immunotherapy and the research that had been steadily advancing it.

Researching Immunotherapy in Honor of Chris

Sadly, Chris passed away the following summer, at the age of 27. In honor of Chris Stern and the fight that is still waged by millions of cancer patients to this day, Kicks4Chris has served as a vehicle to fund research into primary immunotherapy. By hosting an annual 5k, paint nights, basketball tournaments, and benefit Galas, Chris’s family has tried to bring more awareness, as well as funding, to nascent cancer treatments.

Inspired by Chris and everyone fighting against cancer, we encourage others to donate towards their cause by visiting Kicks4Chris.org. All donations received by the organization automatically qualify as tax-deductibles, and go directly toward those who need immunotherapy research the most.

Won’t you join us as we support the Kicks4Chris Foundation this new year? We truly appreciate all of your charitable considerations in an effort to “kick” cancer away!

Visit Kicks4Chris.org for more information on how you can support this worthwhile cause.

The History of Thackray Crane Rental and Lincoln Financial Field

As loyal football fans of the Philadelphia Eagles, we here at Thackray Crane Rental, Inc cannot overstate how truly proud we are to be affiliated with SportsRadio 94WIP, home of the Eagles Radio Network. As loyal Eagles’ fan for decades now, we feel such a strong, personal connection to our hometown team. In honor of our partnership with the Eagles Radio Network, we wanted to revisit our own professional history with the sports team—stretching as far back as 2001, and our involvement in the construction of Lincoln Financial Field.

A Decade of Negotiations

While some Philadelphians call the former U.S. capital, “Philly,” equal proportions of Eagles fans call Lincoln Financial Field, “The Linc.” Regardless, anyone who can remember the old Veterans Stadium will undoubtedly agree that “The Linc” is vastly superior, where football stadiums are concerned. Back in those days, the Veterans Stadium acted as both baseball and football field. It wasn’t until the venerable 1990s that anyone started talking about the possibility of a new stadium. Part of the reasoning for negotiations was the reputation of the Veteran Stadiums itself—ranked as one of the worst venues in the NFL.

The owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Norman Braman, aspired to commission a stadium worthy of his city and his team. Too frustrated by constraints and a severe lack of financial support, Braman sold the Eagles to Jeffrey Lurie. Over the next six years, Lurie passionately pleaded his case to the state of Philadelphia. In 1999, the state approved funding, realizing the vision. By December of 2000, the deal was struck between the City of Philadelphia and the Eagles, agreeing on the construction of what would be Lincoln Financial Field.

Thackray Crane Rental and the Eagles

Having been in business since the 1947, Thackray Crane Rental Inc. had solidified its status in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Maryland, and Delaware, as the premier crane provider in the region. When the substantial project commenced in 2001 to construct the new 69,000 seat stadium, Thackray Crane Rental was involved in lifting the structural steel used to fabricate the immense building. With our fleet of cranes spread across the Philadelphia, PA, region we were proud to partake in the construction of Lincoln Financial Field.

The rest, as they say, is history.

A Peek into the Life of a Crane Operator

It goes without saying, but the construction world is enormous—as vast and as mighty as the vehicles, materials, and equipment utilized on a daily basis. Between the boom trucks and crane rentals, cities like Philadelphia are constantly booming with all the hauling and lifting that goes on.

You may be wondering, “What’s it like to operate one of those gigantic all-terrain cranes?”

Wake, Shine, and Lift

Most crane operators rise in the early morning, giving themselves a sizable portion of the day for lifting and transporting. The first challenge of the day is usually the transportation of the crane itself. Thankfully, a bulk of industrial cranes are designed with easy travel in mind. Once they’re safely rolling down the road or highway, operators ensure that they avoid any overheads or bridges that would bar them entry. Sometimes it’s not the height of the crane, but the weight of the machine that can be logistically problematic. It is for this reason that Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. employs start-of-the-art technology, aiding operators remotely.

Safe Habits and Protocols

Upon their arrival at a job site, crane operators will assess what they see and seek out the local contractor or customer. By coordinating with other workers on site, operators ensure that their cranes do not hinder, endanger, or immobilize anyone in their vicinity. Operators become masters of planning and checklists—sometimes devoting over an hour of their day to systematics, electronics, and computers. As the years have passed, safety regulations in construction have steadily increased. Today, in 2017, your average crane operator is likely to boast a number of certifications. Training and certifications often depend on the job site and the project in question. Some of these qualifications include: OHSA, NCCO certification, CDL license, etc.

Keeping Atop the Tech

Technology evolves more rapidly than most of us realize. Crane operators grasp this simple truth in their day-to-day. Advancements in technology have coincided with dramatic rises in mechanical accuracy and operational efficiency. Newer cranes now feature HUDs and tools for easier lifting and rigging. Whether deployed in DE PA, or NJ, operators need to stay familiar with the latest cranes on the market. Thankfully for operators, the more advanced a crane, the more intuitive it’s likely to be.
