For over a century we have been manufacturing, building, designing, and installing parts for overhead cranes and hoists. We provide twenty four hour technical support because we know that downtime can be crippling to any business. Our company features a research and development department that is works hard in order to ensure that we stay on the forefront of technology at all times.
Our overhead cranes are designed and built to meet our customer’s specific capacity, span and lifting height requirements. More importantly, Reading Crane and Engineering Co. takes careful consideration with regards to the intended use of the crane.The most important part of any overhead materials handling application is selecting the correct hoist to do the job. Your productivity and safety depend on it. Whether wire rope or chain, manual or electric or air powered, single girder or double girder trolleys, low headroom or standard headroom, we are able to assist in selecting the best hoist for your needs.
