It all began 75 years ago, when Will's grandfather, Peter Street, a WWII spitfire pilot, set-up the business with his demob money. Will enthused, "I am thrilled to be joining Street Crane, it is special being able to join something that your family helped build from the ashes of WWII.
For the previous five years, Will has been honing his accountancy and business finance skills at one of the country's top accountancy firms, BHP in Sheffield, where he gained his ACCA qualification.
Will first gained experience of working at Street Crane in his university gap year when he took on a job in the packing and shipping department. Here, he successfully designed and implemented a new packing system. "I am looking forward to the challenge of learning all aspects of the business. The recent launch of Eazycrane, a software-based crane design, estimating and manufacturing package, shows that Street Crane embraces technology and new ideas to stay ahead of the competition,"
Martin Street, Will's father and current chairman of the business said, "It gives me immense pleasure and pride to see Will join the business as the 3rd generation Street to do so. I hope he will enjoy a long association with the great people and clients who he will be working with at Street Crane in the UK and throughout the world via our distributing partners.''
Will concluded, "What both my grandfather and father have achieved is nothing short of phenomenal. With my grandfather starting off repairing and servicing cranes in Sheffield in the 1940s and then my father turning it into the global supplier you see today, one day, it will now hopefully be me helping to take Street Crane to the next level."
