In addition to new cranes, we can also provide you with a crane modification/modernization.  Crane modification can extend the life of an already structurally sound crane at a significantly lower cost than new equipment. Cranes will operate better, and reduce constant maintenance and decrease crane down time.  Modernizations include:

  • Increase the capacity
  • Upgrade the hoist
  • Convert to variable frequency drives
  • Addition of a Radio Control System
  • Change in Power Source (DC to AC)
  • Ensure crane meets all ANSI/OSHA and NEC Standard

Ergonomic Systems

We can offer you a functionally designed and user-friendly ergonomic work station for your specific projects.

We offer an entire line of ergonomics, including:

  • Ergonomic Work Stations
  • Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD’s)
  • Work Station Jib Cranes


We use cost effective reliable adjustable frequency drives to improve performance and load control for any hoist or crane. Each unit includes user friendly programing from ¼ TO 2000 hp. V/F mode, Open Loop Vector Mode or Flux Vector Mode, depending on the type of desired control.

Our radio remote controls allow you to operate potentially dangerous loads from a safe distance or close to the load and allow for highly accurate and safe load positioning.
