JJ Curran Crane Dedicates Manitowoc MLC 300 to Detroit Legend Mickey Redmond
Detroit, MI. — The JJ Curran Crane Company has been avid Detroit Red Wings fans for quite some time, (the company has been season ticket holders for over 50 years) so when a new crane came into the yard President Jeff Curran had an idea. The idea was to give a little back to a member of the Red Wings organization that has not only been on the ice, but also in our homes – former Red Wing and Detroit broadcasting legend Mickey Redmond.
In addition to the dedication of the crane, Jeff Curran and JJ Curran Crane made a donation to the Detroit-based Jamie Daniels Foundation in Mickey’s name in an effort to give a little back to the community that has taken care of the company since it began in 1950. The foundation provides education, resources, guidance, and support to people battling Substance Use Disorders.
“We are just trying to have some fun with Mickey as we celebrate his 50 years in the city, he is a hero to all of us, he is an icon in the City of Detroit.” Curran said.
After the crane had its new wrap, Jeff Curran a life-long player himself, teamed up with some of his hockey buddies, including Bally Sports Detroit reporter and TV host, Trevor Thompson to unviel the new crane to Mickey on-air, during a Red Wings broadcast. See how it went down in the video below:
Curran Cranes and the Red Wings
JJ Curran and specifically their cranes have a relationship with the Detroit Red Wings organization as well. JJ Curran was involved in the construction of the Joe Louis Arena in the late 1970’s, the building of the new Little Caesar’s Arena, and most recently in the demolition of the “Joe”.
JJ Curran Crane has been providing reliable crane rental services to southeast Michigan and beyond since 1950. We love the all the work we get to do, but helping build the Detroit skyline and having a small role in creating the homes for our beloved sports teams brings an added level of satisfaction to the work our company does.
