CSI - Crane Service Inspections joins CRANE 1

Ohio-based Crane Service & Inspections (CSI), acquired by CRANE 1 in January 2017 enhances CRANE 1’s geographic presence in the Midwest and South, and broadens our Mill division’s product and service capabilities.

CSI’s crane and hoist service locations will be added to CRANE 1”s existing service network while the Lifter Refurbishment and Special Products group have been combined with CRANE 1’s Mill Service Division.

Combining the expertise and complementary services of both companies expands our service capabilities and improves our market position as the one-stop shop for overhead crane maintenance and repair needs. We are very excited about the benefits and additional services resulting from this acquisition!


CSI’s expertise in control modernizations of mill cranes, as well as its experience in rebuilding below-the-hook lifting devices, adds significant value to CRANE 1’s customers and our mill service division.
