Hi, I’m Paul Gerrard and I’m the Managing Director of Gerrard Cranes. Throughout my career, which has spanned more than 25 years, I’ve touched on many aspects of this industry meaning that I’m able to pass on a lot of my specialist knowledge. I started my career working on site with cranes as a slinger/signaller installing precast concrete flooring, then becoming a crane supervisor and crane appointed person in 1999. I’ve also worked in contract/project management but it’s working with cranes that I really enjoy. Across the last 25 years+ I’ve picked up a wealth of experience and knowledge and after setting up my own company in 2018 its gone from strength to strength.

Our growing business is dedicated to excellent customer service, and we are driven to achieve pride in all our plans. I look forward to working with you on your project soon.
