WCS youth + experience

August 2016

Combination of youth & experience gives Walker Cranes the service edge.

As a FASSI main dealer since 1996 Walker Crane Services have grown steadily to become the leading truck loader crane supplier in the South East of England. From their depot at Thurrock they operate a fleet of service vans covering the whole of London and the South East. Earlier this year they delivered their 1,000th FASSI underlying their position as the UK's most experienced FASSI service partner. 

Paul Nielsen joined Walkers in 2001 as an engineer & from 2006 he was also an ALLMI operator trainer & crane handover specialist. In 2008 due to increasing FASSI sales Paul became after-sales manager ensuring that the process from crane order through installation & into handover & operation is as smooth & effective as possible. A hugely experienced professional, Paul is seen here receiving his SILVER approved engineer certificate. During 2016 Paul is transitioning into FASSI crane sales. 

Brothers Danny Jnr & Jamie Ross followed their father Danny Snr into the crane business. Anyone who knows Walkers knows the legend that is Danny Ross Snr. An electrical / electronics expert he has learnt the FASSI systems the hard way & this knowledge he is passing onto his sons. Danny Jnr & Jamie recently received their BRONZE awards & are well on their way to SILVER & beyond. The future for FASSI is bright with these young stars of the future.

The FASSI training academy is a structured training and coaching program leading to Bronze, Silver and Gold skills accreditation once the necessary skills have been demonstrated. It represents an investment in the independent crane installation, service & repair sector of which FASSI UK, through our authorised network, is the most vigorous supporter & promoter amongst the major manufacturers. There are 85 engineers enrolled in the FASSI training academy nationally.
