With over 30,000 square feet of fabrication space in Grand Rapids, MI and engineers with a combined 75+ years of experience, your project will be in the right hands with Star Crane and Hoist.


A custom lifting fixture could be just what you need to increase the efficiency of each lift, making your time more valuable and your production more efficient. Call Star Crane and Hoist to see how we can increase your efficiency in each lift.


Ergonomic functionality is becoming more prevalent in more markets now, than ever before. The Star Crane and Hoist custom low–capacity jib crane is perfect for installing next to a machine, to help raise and lower tooling that was previously done by hand. With the various baseplate options, this system will fit in numerous unique areas.


Rarely are two cranes ever exactly the same, the Star Crane and Hoist fabrication and engineering team was built almost 20 years ago. They have worked on various unique monorails, low headroom cranes, single/double/tri girder cranes, and thousands of feet of runway. Your crane system will be in the right hands with the experience of Star Crane and Hoist.

Are your operators having issues reaching inside machines with their hoists? Or the lift you have is not a standard vertical lift? The Star Crane and Hoist team has extensive knowledge in providing you solutions for your unique lifting requirements. Whether building special trolleys, frames, or elbows in your lifting device, your lifting requirements and ideas will be met by the Star Crane and Hoist staff.
