HOLT Crane & Equipment® Utilizes Vita Inclinata’s Vita Load Navigator (VLN) Systems
ROOMFIELD, CO and WASHINGTON, DC — February 3, 2022 — Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, today announced the delivery of three Vita Load Navigator (VLN) systems (2xVLN20 and 1xVLN40) to HOLT Crane & Equipment (HOLT). HOLT, a Texas-area distributor, will utilize the VLN systems for renting, selling, as well as helping their customers fit near-term and long-term construction requirements.
The VLN is a remotely-operated, suspended load system that allows crane operation crews the precision control to orient their lifts without being in the critical path of the load. The system dynamically adjusts to load sizes, crane movement, and wind conditions, allowing high-precision lifts in the most challenging environments. HOLT views the VLN system as a very important tool for any type of heavy load lifting as it eliminates the use of taglines, improves the productivity of lifting and placing loads while enhancing employee safety.
“We are excited about introducing the Vita Load Navigator into the southern construction market and believe that the system will quickly prove itself in terms of safety and productivity,” said Kyle Nape, Sales Manager, HOLT Crane & Equipment. “Not only is this an excellent product right now, but Vita Inclinata is also a great manufacturer who works closely with HOLT and our customers to continually improve the system in the field.”
Nape also cites these additional VLN features as compelling reasons for promoting Vita’s system throughout the construction industry:
- Simple control over the load and stability in winds with minimal effort from the riggers/operators.
- Two memory positions for ease of multi-pick operations.
- Long battery life, and ease of charging.
- Easy to transport from job to job.
According to Associated General Contractors of America reports, construction in Texas contributed $100.9 billion (5.3 percent) of the state’s $1.9 trillion GDP in 2020. Caleb Carr, Chief Executive Officer at Vita underscores the importance of Texas and other markets that embrace HOLT services.
“As a VLN distributor, HOLT will promote our system to construction operations in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico—areas where they have strong relationships,” Carr said. “We are excited such a large construction company has embraced our system and proud that the VLN system will be promoting a higher degree of load-lifting safely throughout the south.”
