Our History

North Pacific Crane Company was founded in 2004. Our company’s history goes all the way back to 1978, when we were called Alaska Marine Crane. Although our company name and ownership has changed several times over the years, our commitment to designing and manufacturing high-quality marine, offshore, and dock cranes has remained constant throughout our 30-year history.

Since 1978, we have delivered over 2,000 cranes. Many of our original cranes — including some we delivered back in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s — are still in operation. Our long-time customers still return to us for replacement parts and consulting, and still recommend us to new customers.

Some of our engineering, sales, and production employees have been with us since our company was founded. Our engineers have over 30 years experience in designing top-quality cranes, using international engineering standards and the latest software design tools. Our company uses specialized parts, fittings and finishes. Also, we provide ongoing field support for our cranes, so they will continue to serve our clients’ high-performance needs, even in harsh marine environments.

Through good workmanship, documented manufacturing and testing procedures, North Pacific Crane has established a reputation for delivering excellent products and support. We will continue to deliver quality crane products and service as our company prospers in the new millennium.
