Problem. Solved. Case History

Installing the “Gold Standard” in Crane Solutions


  • Our client was constructing a brand-new building and needed to install a large number of state-of-the-art cranes, hoists, and runway systems.
  • These systems needed to offer superb flexibility in the handling of a diverse array of high-tech, high-value production parts.
  • And, oh by the way, the installation needed to be complete in 8 weeks.


  • We engineered an elaborate system of 24 two-ton crane-and-hoist systems and 10 runway systems.
  • Our turnkey installation includes bridge systems, hoist/trolley units, runway systems, a general column layout, radio controls with backups, and a telemotive laser anti-collision system.
  • We assigned a project manager with overall responsibility for the entire project who coordinated the timely completion of all deliverables including engineering, procurement, and installation.
  • We provided all system warranties, training and manuals, as well as service and support as needed.


  • The entire project was installed as scheduled and has been working flawlessly.
  • The engineering, installation, and system training by Han-Tek have earned high praise from plant personnel.
