CraneWerks’ Core Values

Stay vigilant, stay cautious, and never compromise on safety.

Safety isn’t just a priority; it’s a fundamental value that guides every action and decision. From the shop floor to job sites, we prioritize the safety of ourselves, our team, and our customers because nothing is more important than returning home safely at the end of the day.

We go beyond mere compliance with regulations, by anticipating and addressing potential challenges before they arise. Safety is not just a checkbox for us; it’s a proactive stance that guides every decision and action we take.

Embrace camaraderie, cultivate connections, and honor the unity of family.

Family isn’t solely defined by blood, but by the shared experiences, support, and love that bind us together. Let us prioritize the well-being and unity of our families with strong, resilient and unwavering support in all that we do.

We understand that when our team feels secure in their roles and personal lives, they can thrive professionally and personally. By offering a supportive environment, stability in their positions, and ensuring their families are valued, we create a strong foundation for success and fulfillment. CraneWerks is not just a workplace; it’s a community that prioritizes the holistic well-being of everyone involved, allowing them to flourish both professionally and personally.

Stand tall, stay committed, and maintain honesty and accountability, upholding the unwavering bond that unites us.

Integrity isn’t just about doing the right thing when no one is watching; it’s a promise to stand by each other through thick and thin, to support, to defend, and to never back down in our allegiance with our CraneWerks crew, dealers, and suppliers.

Faith in our brand is earned through dedicated commitment to creating an environment of honor and respect, where contributions are valued and trust is paramount.

We believe in transparent and sincere communication, upholding the highest standards of honesty.

Let us be known not just for what we accomplish, but for how we accomplish it—with integrity as our guiding principle, ensuring that our word is our bond, and our actions speak volumes about who we are.

Work smart, work hard, and take pride in every weld, every bolt, every wire, every detail.

Craftsmanship isn’t just about making something; it’s about taking pride in what we do and making it right, with skill, dedication, and a relentless pursuit of excellence.

Each product is a testament to our dedication to precision and quality, a carefully crafted tool for your needs. It’s not just about delivering; it’s about crafting experiences that resonate. At CraneWerks, craftsmanship is the unique touch that sets our products and services apart, a mark of pride in every detail.

Serve with passion, serve with integrity, and serve with a genuine desire to make a difference.

Whether it’s to our customers, our crew, or our community, our commitment to service is the cornerstone of everything we do. It’s not just about meeting needs; it’s about exceeding expectations and leaving a lasting impact wherever we go.

Work together, learn together, and achieve together through collaboration.

Collaboration isn’t just about internal teamwork; it’s about extending our efforts beyond our walls, forging strong partnerships and alliances, leveraging diverse talents, perspectives, and experiences to accomplish more than we ever could alone. Working hand-in-hand with our dealers, crew members, and suppliers, we’ll tackle challenges, seize opportunities, and deliver exceptional service and value.

Be a part of something bigger

We are always on the lookout for top talent to join the CraneWerks family. At CraneWerks, our Midwest values show in every crane we deliver and every inspection we perform – our employees make the difference.

Delivering on the promise to “provide quality, competitive material handling solutions to our dealers that they could confidently present to their customers”, takes teamwork. Our ever-growing staff (that’s you!) of dedicated engineering, manufacturing, and technical associates have the common goal of both supporting and growing our dealer network.

Lift your career

With these changing times, CraneWerks employees have a unique opportunity to be a part of a family environment. We work hard and we come together as a family. This team shares in employee events and meals that reinforce our connection.

Perhaps the biggest benefit at CraneWerks? Career development. Training and advancement opportunities are available to all employees. Safe to say we believe in building people too.


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.
