National Crane Marks its 75th Anniversary

OMAHA, NE — National Crane is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2022. National Crane was founded in 1947 as Burg Manufacturing by Marlo Burg in Nebraska. The company’s first product was agricultural weed sprayers, but in 1963 it changed its name to National Crane Corp., to reflect its expansion into boom trucks. Grove acquired the company in 1978, and it became part of the Manitowoc portfolio in 2002.

Today, National Crane is a globally recognized crane brand. The company has patented numerous lifting technologies and produced best-in-class boom trucks across several crane generations.

Several National Crane models have the highest capacities in their range, and new technologies, such as hydraulically removable counterweight systems, are making lifting work easier and more efficient. Since 2012 the company has operated its National Crane Truck Mod Center, where customers’ tailor-made, engineered solutions ensure each truck and crane are matched to their applications.

“We’re extremely proud to celebrate National Crane’s 75th anniversary with the brand’s loyal customer base,” said Aaron Ravenscroft, President and CEO of The Manitowoc Company, Inc. “It has been an incredible journey for National Crane, and we are confident that the future will bring continued success. We would like to thank all the employees, customers, and crane operators that have contributed to the business over the years and look forward to the next 75 years and beyond.”

Manitowoc, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, designs, manufactures, markets, and supports comprehensive product lines of mobile hydraulic cranes, lattice-boom crawler cranes, boom trucks, and tower cranes, under the Aspen Equipment, Grove, Manitowoc, MGX Equipment Services, National Crane, Potain, and Shuttlelift brand names.
