Crainco Inc. celebrated a milestone in 2020 – 30 years in business – and CalContractor Mag featured the company in its January 2020 issue.
The article written by CalContractor Editor, Ian Hoover tells the company’s story which started in 1990 in the home of current owners, Brian and Diane Smith.
The couple had just two small Dyna-Lift sign cranes which were used primarily to lift A/C units, signs, motors and light poles. Over time, their Dyna-Lifts kept them so busy that they moved to their first office in 1992.
In 1999, the expansion continued, and Crainco moved to their current office/yard on Painter Ave in Santa Fe Springs.
Their fleet and staff grew with each expansion milestone and the company started serving more areas throughout Southern California. Today, they serve clients in San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. The company has also grown its fleet of equipment to include Linkbelt, Manitex, National, Broderson and more.
