Did you know? Cranes were being used as early as 500 B.C.! 

Researchers have dated that cranes were being used to build Greek Temples

Obviously, this shows that cranes have been instrumental in the lifting and moving of large objects for many centuries. 

Cranes look a lot different today than they would have back in the B.C. era, but they still perform the same type of function. A crane is a type of machinery that is used to lift and transfer heavy objects on a job site safely and efficiently.  Because of the versatility of this machine, it can be used across many different industries.  

Let’s talk about some of the industries that use and can benefit from crane services! 


The most common and obvious industry that most people think of when we mention cranes is the construction industry.  You see them in big cities moving materials that build hundred-story skyscrapers. You can also see them in towns helping to build the newest mall or business. 

The uses for cranes in construction are endless. Here at BOSS Crane, we offer Civil, Commercial, and Industrial crane and rigging services within the construction industry. 

Wind Energy

I’m sure you’ve seen the giant windmills turning in the distance on hillsides and farmlands, but have you ever seen one up close? Those turbines and propellers alone are dozens of feet long and thousands of pounds! They also stand hundreds of feet in the air. How do you think these windmills get put together? With the use of a crane of course! 

Whether it’s wind turbine maintenance, wind farm construction, or heavy haul transportation, our crew and equipment can help get your wind energy job done safely and efficiently!
