Superior Rigging & Erecting Co., with locations in Atlanta and Orlando, is committed to the awareness and prevention of ovarian cancer. As such, the company will wrap one of their cranes in graphics designed to draw viewers attention to the cause of ovarian cancer awareness and will donate five percent of all revenue generated by the crane in the next 12 months. The company hopes their continued support of Geaux Teal will further the cause of ovarian cancer awareness and prevention efforts.

Geaux Teal is an organization operating with the mission to raise awareness for women of all ages about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer through the promotion of community-based events that raise awareness and increase education and research funds for ovarian cancer. The organization was founded after Beth Torina, Louisiana State University’s head softball coach, learned that her mother had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Later learning that the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer are often ignored as typical female aches and pains, she was inspired to organize a day where her team wore teal to bring awareness to ovarian cancer. That event was the start of what would be Geaux Teal.

“We are thrilled to see the commitment from Patrick Lewis and Superior Rigging to help support a powerful cause,” Torina said. “Our original mission for the Geaux Teal foundation was to spread awareness to all about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Through Superior’s contribution, we are able to take a completely different approach to accomplishing this goal. We are truly thankful for opening up this avenue and supporting this cause.”

The continual increase in education and overall awareness of ovarian cancer is the primary founding principle of Geaux Teal. Through this emphasis on educational and awareness objectives, the group hopes to accomplish an early detection screening test, further understandings of the prognosis of ovarian cancer, improved doctor/patient relationships and more.

Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer in the United States and causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2019, about 22,530 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer and about 13,980 women will die from ovarian cancer, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).

There is no way to fully prevent ovarian cancer. However, there are measures that can be taken to lower one’s risk including prioritizing regular women’s health exams. Studies show that women who don’t get ovarian cancer often have the following things in common: hormonal birth control usage, full-term pregnancies in their lifetime, tubes tied (tubal ligation), hysterectomy, history of breastfeeding and daily aspirin use. Some signs of ovarian cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic, include abdominal bloating or swelling, quickly feeling full when eating, weight loss, discomfort in the pelvis area, changes in bowel habits (such as constipation) and a frequent need to urinate. The Mayo Clinic recommends making an appointment with a doctor if symptoms are noticed.

1960’s Caboose Transport

CUSTOMER: The Allen Morris Companies

PROJECT: The Allen Morris Companies had a 1960’s caboose on site on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta that they wanted to remove, transport to Austell, and unload in Austell. Their plans are to restore the caboose.

EQUIPMENT: 165-Ton crane with a spreader bar and rigging team

First, we had to clean up the site in order to protect our equipment from tire damage to the crane and trucks considering the old sight was a scrap yard.

Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. provided a 165-Ton crane with a spreader bar and rigging team to remove the caboose and set it on a truck. The crane and rigging team followed the truck to the yard in Austell and unloaded the caboose per customer instructions.

MACY’S GREAT TREE LIGHTING

PROJECT: Remove the tree from a flat bed truck to set on the roof of Macy’s at the Lennox Square Mall in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. After Christmas, remove the tree and set on truck for removal.

CUSTOMER: Macy’s

EQUIPMENT: 90 Ton Crane + Rigging Team

The Macy’s Christmas tree is a famous Atlanta tradition that has been happening for decades. Superior Rigging & Erecting employee, Chris Leavy, recounts his experience of the event as a child:

“When I was a kid, I remember going to see Superior Rigging set the Christmas tree on the old Rich’s Building in Downtown Atlanta. They use to have a children’s ride, the pink pig that use to go around the tree.”

Many Atlanta residents have similar, fond memories of the event. The Macy’s Great Tree Lighting is a special event during a special time of year and we are so glad we are able to participate. The lighting is an annual, fun-filled tradition that features the Christmas tree lighting as well as a pre-show concert and fireworks finale. We used one of our 90 tonLink-Belt cranes to set the tree in preparation for the event.
