It takes a lot to keep a business thriving for 40 years. You need an abundance of innovation, expertise, quality, and amazing customer service. Turns out that at American Crane, we’ve been offering all four since the day we opened our doors back in 1972.
We started with 10 employees and the goal of becoming one of the leading custom manufacturers of cranes, hoists, and material handling equipment. In many ways, we’ve turned what once seemed like a far-off dream into a reality. Today, American Crane is an industry leader with 190 employees and 3 state-of-the-art plants covering a total of 220,000 sq. feet.
Right from the beginning, our founders made the strategic decision to keep everything in-house. From engineering to manufacturing to field services, doing everything under one roof has allowed us to maintain a high level of quality and consistency. In addition, our seasoned staff of mechanical, electrical, and structural engineers has enabled us to provide our customers with innovative specialty lifting, outstanding complex material handling solutions, and service that just can’t be beat.
It certainly helps that we’ve always had the best tools and minds in the industry, but none of it would mean much without the loyal support of our customers and our dedicated staff. Therefore, as we celebrate our fortieth year, we want to take a moment to say “thank you” and acknowledge everyone who has played a role in our success. We also want to let you know that as we go forward, we’re going to keep offering our customers the same safe and reliable material handling solutions that made American Crane the industry leader it is today.
