When I asked Mark Baldwin if he minded if I took a few snapshot of the men at work, he said go ahead and graciously introduced me to a few of the guys.  I was thinking we have posted many fabulous photos of the equipment and turbine, but few of the men working. As Mark said, “The equipment is impressive, but my crew makes it all happen.”

Mark Baldwin is the third generation of the family-owned Baldwin Crane & Equipment Corporation. To read the company’s interesting history and about their crisis/response program (and why the Baldwin apple is their log), visit the company’s website. From roots in dairy farming in Wilmington, Massachusetts, to meeting today’s heavy lifting needs in the most challenging environments, Baldwin Crane provides innovative lifting solutions. They have worked on projects as diverse as the new Mets Stadium and the search and rescue efforts at Ground Zero in New York City.

    • Thank you Paul–Mark has mentioned several times how absolutely fantastic everyone in Gloucester has been to he and his crew–something for which we can all be proud!


  • I’ve seen the statue to the Baldwin apple on a side road in Wilmington. Cool history.


  • I heard Mark Baldwin did a great job at Ground Zero helping out Bay Crane based in New York.


  • Hi Kim, I work for a non-commercial group of non-profits (universities and various non-profits) that put together a Summit event and we would love to use one of your images above for our video (about Work). They are wonderful photos. How much would it cost to have permission to use this for a non-commercial video that will be made public and free for downloads. We of course would keep your watermark & can include your website link if you would like in the video.
