Canton set the stage

Ohio-based Canton Erectors provided two Grove all terrains to set up the stage, lighting towers and lights of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Established in 1963, the Pro Football Hall of Fame hosts an annual enshrinement ceremony and professional game that draws thousands to the Northeast Ohio museum and event center each year.

“2018’s events were larger than ever and required heavy duty equipment to help erect the massive stage and lighting setup on a tight deadline. In addition, they required equipment that could handle the job without damage to the field in the Tom Benson Stadium,” said Canton Erectors.

A 225USt Grove GMK 5225 and a 240USt Grove GMK 5240 were selected for the job.  The schedule required precise timing to get the stage assembled and clear the field before the busy schedule of enshrinement festivities began.

The beautiful, well-lit stage provided the perfect centerpiece for the week’s enshrinement ceremonies and events, and concert that are attended by thousands of football players, fans and locals.
