Job Description:

COMPANY OVERVIEW

At Elite Crane Rental Inc. we perform a wide variety of work including construction, industrial and residential assignments. Our fleet currently consists of boom trucks and hydraulic truck-mounted cranes. We will be expanding our fleet with the addition of rough terrain cranes and all terrain cranes in the near future. Our company is growing rapidly with the help of great employees and a highly motivated management team with a hands-on approach; all dedicated to building a recognizable country-wide brand that is already well regarded in the crane rental industry.

POSITION

Currently we have a unique opportunity for the highly motivated individual with the right skill set. We are in the process of creating a mechanical division to service our cranes as well as the mechanical equipment of other companies, such as but not limited to: excavators, bulldozers, transport trucks, trailers, etc. This position is best suited to a hard-working and self-motivated individual with an interest in entrepreneurship as there is the potential to become a part-owner with an equity share in the company. We are looking for someone to help start this division (which will be headed under a separate corporation) and run it as the CEO, making all daily decisions. This new corporation will be backed by Elite Crane Rental Inc. as a sister company; but with a different corporate profile and ownership structure and a different name; as we will be servicing the equipment of our competitors, when required, as well as our own. A company website and marketing plan will be put into place to help establish clientele from the beginning. However, with all of our contacts and equipment, we should be able to begin with a complete service truck that should have enough work to be kept busy full-time.

To start, the successful candidate will be provided with a company service vehicle complete with all necessary tools, and a company cell phone. He or she will help create company policies, scheduling, pricing and anything else a business owner/manager would be involved in. The successful candidate will promote this company and perform a wide range of duties from sales calls, to attending meetings with our accountants, overseeing repairs, dealing with vendors, ordering parts and anything else that would require attention. The company's main phone line would be directed to the aforementioned company cell phone and this position would require the successful candidate to be responsible for fielding incoming customer calls and scheduling work, in addition to completing the required mechanical repairs calls. At any time that there is insufficient work to keep the service vehicle busy, job duties would include visiting and contacting other companies to promote our service in an attempt to bring in more business.

In a short time, we expect the demand for our service to exceed the capabilities of a single service vehicle, at which point a second service vehicle would be added to the fleet, and the second mechanic would work directly under the successful candidate first hired/partnered with to establish this mechanical division. This mechanic would then become the primary mobile service technician, freeing up our original partner/hire to perform managerial duties until/unless required to also make service calls at the same time. Once our mechanical division has grown to include three service vehicles, we expect the role of the successful candidate to transition entirely into a managerial role.

In the near future Elite Crane Rental Inc. will also be building a large industrial building where shop space will be provided for our new mechanical division, at which point the company will transition from a purely mobile mechanical company to also include a complete mechanical shop for more comprehensive repairs. Currently yard space for outdoor repairs is available.

In conclusion, this position is intended for a business-minded, highly motivated, highly skilled, social, and dedicated individual that is ready to take his or her career to the next level, acting as the CEO of this new company with the potential for an equity ownership stake in the business. One could consider this opportunity as akin to starting one's own company where the profits of the company transfer directly to the rewards enjoyed by the individual, but with reduced risk as Elite Crane Rental Inc. will provide financial support and provide a reasonable amount of work for this company from the very beginning. We foresee this company having multiple shop mechanics, multiple service vehicles and a dedicated parts department, which would make for a very lucrative for the right individual. Ownership potential and corporate profit sharing will be paid accordingly based on performance.

*** Our main location will be out of Hamilton, Ontario however you can take your service vehicle home with you and may be dispatched anywhere in Southern Ontario. We are also creating satellite yards in Toronto and Niagara Falls. This job will be always be close to home as it starts from your driveway. ***
