Progress being made on the Little Caesars Arena with help from Alta Equipment Company
The Little Caesars Arena has been a buzz of activity, and many of the needs that have arisen continue to be met consistently by Alta Equipment Company. Alta has had up to 150 rental construction units in and around the stadium throughout the course of the massive undertaking. The stadium will house the Detroit Pistons and the Detroit Red Wings when completed this September. Rob Chiles, President of Alta's Construction Group, recently visited the construction site where Alta's equipment is being used to ensure efficiency of these units. During inspection of the units Chiles met with Mickey Redmond, former Red Wing All-Star and current color analyst for the Detroit Red Wings. In 1972-1973 Redmond became the first Red Wing player to score fifty goals in one season. Today he is provides expert analysis on strategy, injury reports, and detailed statistics on the team.
Alta stood out as a top choice in helping contractors meet the demanding requirements of the arena construction project. Alta’s certification as a Detroit-Based Business (DBB) has been key to our success during construction of the new arena. Alta is the only construction and industrial equipment dealer to have a location within Detroit and meet other stringent qualifications for the certification. Because of this Alta was able to apply for and receive the designation of being a DBB. This has provided Alta with a competitive advantage as contractors receive equalization credits for working with companies that have the DBB Certification. Alta is now in the second year of having this distinguishing accolade, allowing us to keep penetrating previously inaccessible markets.
