Consolidated Crane & Rigging is one of the most trusted names in the Houston crane industry. With more than 35 years in the business, 100 expert team members and one of the largest fleets in Texas, we’re a proven turn-key solution for crane and rigging projects along the Gulf Coast.
When you partner with Consolidated Crane, you’re not just hiring a crane rental company. You’re forming a relationship. That value drives everything we do, and it’s the same one that drove us when we started out in the crane business more than 35 years ago.
Consolidated Crane has come a long way since 1980, when George Turner Sr. left his job at a P&H dealer in Houston to found his own crane brokerage. In those early days, our company focused exclusively on buying, fixing and selling used equipment—an adventure that took our team all over the world sourcing cranes, from the Far East to South America, and across North America from Alaska to Nova Scotia.
In 1986, when the oil industry downturn hit Houston, we began renting our cranes to make ends meet. That turned into a business model that we maintained through the mid-1990s. During that time, our company grew from 25 to more than 100 team members, and we built strong partnerships in Houston still around today.
“One thing I’ve learned running this company is that things are going to change. If you have certain goals and ideals with how you run your company, you can evolve along with them.” – George Turner Sr.
As time went on, the industry continued to evolve, and it became more difficult to find skilled operators. We realized that the only way to control our own destiny was to rent our equipment with our experienced operators at the helm. This allowed us to maintain our high safety and machine maintenance standards, and it also streamlined the entire process for our customers.
Today, our family-owned business specializes in turn-key crane rental and rigging services for customers across the Gulf Coast.
