    About Us
North American Crane is the largest manufacturer of telescoping and knuckle-boom type cranes for use in marine applications in the Western United States. Our marine cranes are marketed under the "Alaska Marine Crane" trade name, and include pedestal-mounted boom cranes with lifting capacities ranging from two tons to two hundred tons. Typical applications include:
  • Vessel, or dock-mounted cranes for loading and unloading product and materials on or offshore.
  • Cranes and davits for rescue-boat and lifeboat applications.
  • Barge-mounted cranes for handling hoses in the transfer and storage of petroleum products.
  • Workboat and custom applications, such as ship-mounted cranes to launch and recover remote operated vehicles (ROV's), or towing sidescan sonar arrays.
  • Cranes used in municipal, solid-waste sorting and compacting at Transfer Stations.
These cranes function in the harsh marine environment. Our company uses specialized parts, fittings and finishes. This, together with good workmanship and documented manufacturing and testing procedures, has established an excellent reputation for our products. A significant percentage of our business is generated from satisfied customers as well as referrals from them.

We have an installed base of over 1,500 Alaska Marine Cranes. In order to ensure timely service to our customers, we are positioned to provide a prompt response to requests for parts and technical support.
