All reconditioned cranes are fully refurbished and meet Loler standards.

Underslung Cranes

Similar in design to standard underslung cranes have a different end carriage design allowing them to be supported by runway beams suspended from roof steelwork. The main advantage of this design means there are no columns mounted to the floor.

The company has more recently taken on both the management and engineering team from what was formerly Dewsbury Lifting Services. A&B Cranes head office and works is now in Sheffield; however engineers are operating in West Yorkshire and Newcastle, Tyne & Wear for crane maintenance and repairs.

The company continues to supply and install cranes and gantries throughout the UK and export worldwide.
