Morrow was chosen by IUOE Local 793 in Ontario to provide the Liebherr 85EC-B tower crane for their new training center climbing structure. Morrow has had a longstanding relationship with local 793 and we are proud to be a part of this historic training program teaching both inside the building and top climbing operations utilizing one crane and a specially designed and built structure. Local 793 selected Morrow based on our superior service and quality-based solutions to help them achieve the perfect addition to their outstanding training program.  
Having this crane at the OETIO campus in Oakville will benefit students and operators who want and need to be trained in top- and bottom-climbing procedures. – Mike Gallagher, Local 793 business manager
 
Here at OETIO we have had a very good working relationship with Morrow for many years now.  They have always provided excellent service and technical support any time that we have requested their assistance.  They worked with us to help ensure that our new 85 E-CB Tower Crane would climb within the new structure that was designed specifically for us to teach how to bottom and top climb this tower crane to our I.U.O.E. Local 793 members here at OETIO in Oakville, Ontario.  The bottom and top climbing exercise was performed for the first time, with the help of Morrow staff, OETIO Instructors and apprentices successfully without any problems what so ever.  We were very pleased and look forward too many more successful climbs here at OETIO. – Joe Dowdall, Director of Training and Apprenticeship and Vice President, IUOE Local 793
