Aluma Announces Next Generation Mobile Steel Tower
First step on the pathway to the tower of the future
Aluma is widely recognized as the world’s preeminent supplier of premium Aluminum mobile telescoping towers. Why would we venture into the steel tower business? The answer is simple – customer requests! Many of our aluminum tower customers also purchase steel towers, with lower initial acquisition costs, for use in less demanding applications and deployment environments. They have asked that we use our in-house engineering and design expertise, and our focus on details and quality, to bring a new line of feature-rich steel towers to the market and make them available at competitive pricing. We are pleased to comply!
|Aluminum Towers||Steel Towers|
|Lower TCO (total cost of ownership)||Lower initial acquisition cost|
|Longer life in most use cases||Shorter life in some use cases|
|Lower maintenance requirements and cost||More rigorous maintenance requirements|
|Normal payload capacities||Significant payload capacity|
We have dubbed our initial steel tower the Juggernaut, a particularly appropriate name since external reviewers of our engineering work on the project called it “a beast!” Our design approach was to think out-of-the-box, using only the best of historical conventions, in addition to creatively approaching incremental improvements requested by our demanding aluminum tower customers. The result is, indeed, a juggernaut… advancing Aluma ahead of existing steel tower suppliers. This is only the start of our focused journey down the pathway toward the towers of the future — aluminum, steel and beyond!
