Galvanizing Plant in Muncie Indiana being evaluated by CraneWerks, Inc.

CraneWerks Utilizes Hoist Designed to Withstand Harsh Environments

A galvanizer came to Electrolift because they had performance, safety, and downtime concerns with their existing hoists. Galvanizing applications are notorious for having issues with the mechanical load brake when there is a constant load on the hook and excessive heat is generated during long lifts causing premature failure. Constant inspections, downtime, contaminants in the oil, safety, and ongoing concerns of hoist failure proved to the galvanizer a new solution was required.

In the late 1990s, CraneWerks noticed that the American crane industry was in trouble. Big overseas companies were making huge inroads into the US market by setting up their own sales networks. Their seemingly unlimited resources and capabilities made it increasingly difficult for independent US dealers to stay competitive.

Against that backdrop, CraneWerks was founded in 1997 with a vision: give independent American dealers a chance to compete in their own backyard by giving them the opportunity to say “Yes” to all their customers’ overhead material handling needs.
