At Capital Hoist and Crane. We have been providing experts services to our clients through our staff of highly trained and skilled maintenance professionals.

Our commitment to providing outstanding crane, turntables, rail jack, maintenance services, and rigging products to our clients is why our customers continue returning to us for the most complicated and challenging crane installation, maintenance projects and rigging needs.

All our employees are certified to install and maintain the many types of heavy load cranes that our clients use on their most critical projects. We also have certified below the hook inspectors for all your rigging needs.

Our training and commitment to safety sets us apart from other crane and maintenance companies because we focus on continuous training of our employees and specialize in the installation and care of heavy load industrial cranes. Our employees go through a background check and a drug test as part of their hiring process.

We are a service-disabled veteran owned business with extensive experience in inspection, repair, and preventive maintenance of overhead cranes, turntable and rail jacks. We work on a variety of lifting devices ranging from small ½ ton hoists to high capacity cranes, turntables and drop tables as well as a wide range of rail jacks.

We repair and inspect multiple styles of cranes and railroad equipment such as turntables and rail jacks including but not limited to gantry cranes, single and double girder bridge cranes, jibs and monorail cranes, drop tables, portable and stationary rail jacks.

In addition to all these crane and hoisting devices, we also inspect below the hook lifting devices and rigging products such as chain, synthetic and wire rope slings, spreader bars, lifting clamps and lifting beams.

We are a Columbus McKinnon distributor and rigging center as well an authorized warranty center for Columbus McKinnon.

We complete all inspections to our interpretation of OSHA standards for monthly, quarterly, annual and semi-annual based on customer needs. In addition to inspection and preventive maintenance, we are also able to conduct load test on all lifting devices. We provide all customers with a written report detailing the findings to include all deficiencies and recommendations for enhanced productivity.

We have performed services for various government agencies including USACE and DOD, as well as private sector companies for jobs such as wire rope changes on cranes, new crane installations, new turntable installations, providing, installing and training of mechanical storage systems with integrated cranes, load tests, inspection, and repairs.

We work throughout the world and have a fleet of vehicles and all required tools to perform any required inspections or repairs to all types of cranes. For all contracts, we prefer to perform all work with in house employees. The reason is that our technicians are well trained in all aspects of maintenance and operations of cranes, turntables and rail jacks.

However, there are times when we need to subcontract portions of the work. In all the cases we ensure that all subcontractors have equivalent insurance along with a minimum of 5 years’ experience and certifications.

We work with our customers to ensure that all users are fully trained in both the operation of various equipment as well as minor user-level maintenance for hoists and cranes.

Our president and owner, Matthew Edgett, can provide tailored training courses to our customers covering safety procedures, pre and post-operation checks, lock-out – tag-out procedures and proper lifting techniques. We can also provide a qualified below the hook lifting device inspection and user inspection training to help ensure that the end-users are fully aware of safe practices and what to look for prior to using any lifting device including below the hook lifting devices such as chain slings, wire rope slings, synthetic web slings, spreader bars and lifting clamps.

At the conclusion training, a sign-in roster showing who participated in the training, as well as a copy of all training materials, will be available.
