Present constituents of this Equipment Systems Division are Wiley Manufacturing, steel fabricators for the marine and construction industries; Clyde Iron, builders of "Whirley" cranes and other heavy construction and materials handling equipment; and Provincial Crane, manufacturers of overhead industrial cranes.

Combined sales of the Varco - Pruden and Equipment Systems Division exceed $100,000,000.

Other AMCA staff officers are William R.

Holland, vice president and general counsel; Robert A. Reid, vice president-manufacturing, and Frank J. Stevenson, secretary and controller.
