We love analogies! For many years, we have referenced the sunstone as a tribute to our Norwegian heritage. The Vikings used the sunstone to locate the sun and stars to navigate in rough waters. At American Crane, our sunstone is our people. Though every project may not be easy, we give our employees the foundation to make decisions and problem-solve to absolutely fulfill and delight our customers. We do what we commit to do, do it well, and do it on schedule.
We believe our strength is in our team members, and we are committed to a culture that fosters their growth, empowerment, and safety.
CEO of American Crane, Karen Norheim, explains her vision:
“At American Crane, we believe that to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. That is why we are building the business for where we are going, not just where we are.”
If you water and nurture your garden, your career, your family, your friends, and if you spread the seeds and till the soil, you will prepare for future generations and gardens to come. This relates to our culture at American Crane. The garden year cycles through, and we cultivate our employee relationships to grow our business together as a team. We want to make sure that we have a business environment that allows everyone to thrive.
We believe that the longevity of our customer relationships comes from nurturing our employees. As our mission states, we put perseverance, heart, and integrity into everything we do.
We are here for the long term and look forward to servicing our customers for the next 50 years!
