CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT MMeldrum Mechanical Services Inc. offers 247365 service to its customers often stepping into emergency large- scale industrial service or repair situations. The need to be on the move at short notice was the reason owner Brent Meldrum purchased a Link-Belt HTC-86100 truck- mounted crane from Columbus Equipment Company in late 2014. We use a crane to supplement our own work. We do a lot of emergency work and we like the convenience of getting where we need to be very quickly Meldrum said. With the truck crane a crew from Meldrum Mechanical can drive right to the job site and be ready to go instead of waiting to find a trucking company that can move a crane on short notice. In just a few months the Link-Belt has been used on a variety of projects from helping retrofit a roller coaster at Cedar Point to rebuilding a gyratory rock crusher. The crusher had a mantle that weighed more than 50000 pounds plus several other heavy bulky parts and Meldrum crews were able to remove them all through the roof thanks to the HTC-86100. The crane has also been used for bucket elevator jobs and even on another crane. Every day is different for us Meldrum said. The Toledo-based company offers customized millwright services repairs and installations and has a machine shop and fabrication shop. Reverse engineering and replicating pieces for outdated equipment is a specialty. One day the company might be working on chutes or hoppers another day installing a safety catwalk. The company has been in business since 2001 and operates mostly around northwest Ohio. Meldrums father and uncle ran a similar business and he took over an established customer base when their business was dissolved. One Meldrum Mechanical customer all Ohioans are familiar with is the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky. In spring 2015 Meldrum crews and the 100-ton Link-Belt helped the park transform the former Mantis roller coaster into the new werewolf-themed Rougarou ride. Meldrums employees worked with the ride representative and assisted in installing new parts and making the modi- fications necessary for the new style of floorless carts being used on the rebranded roller coaster. The company is also on call during Cedar Points season to make any emergency repairs and to support the parks maintenance crews in keeping the rides running. The company has replaced cracked sprockets on rides modified gearboxes and otherwise made magic hap- Meldrum Mechanical Services Inc.
