We repair and maintain all makes and models of crane travelling machinery

Crane Repair Company

We offer a 24/7 crane and hoist repair service.  Our highly qualified and experienced crane engineers will identify the fault and we will supply the required replacement parts for almost any make and model of crane or hoist.

Where crane repairs  cannot be completed on your premises we have facilities to provide off site repair and if required the complete overhaul of your crane or hoist unit.  We also carry a large stock of hoists, motor and crane components for quick turnaround so your crane is back up and running with the minimum downtime.

Crane maintenance & scheduled servicing

We offer comprehensive maintenance and service schedules tailored to suit client requirements.  This may be determined by crane usage, working environment and specific industry requirements.

Scheduled servicing helps minimise machinery downtime and optimises the life span of your lifting equipment.  We maintain overhead cranes, goliath cranes, jib cranes, wire rope hoists, chain hoists, runway beams, A frames and winch hoists.

Our engineers fill in detailed service sheets and from those any required maintenance work will be reported and quoted to the client.

Crane & Hoist Examination & Testing

We offer to carry out crane and hoist examination and testing and from that provide a report of thorough examination in accordance with LOLER requirements.  As members of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association we operate in accordance with the latest legislation and codes of practice.

This includes lifting operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) and the Work at Height Regulations 2005.  Provision and use of Work at Height Regulations 1988 (PUWER) BS7121 code of practice for safe use of cranes.

Here at E&C Cranes, we can carry out fully calibrated proof load testing of cranes & hoists.  We have our own test weights, cradle and slings for load testing cranes up to 100t SWL.

We will then provide load test certification in accordance with LOLER.

Crane Modernisation

We can modify and upgrade existing overhead cranes and goliath crane systems.   Our services include:


We offer replacement new and reconditioned wire rope hoists and chain hoists to fit your single girder or double girder crane with a wide range of specifications and duty clauses to suit customers individual requirements.

Motorised wheel blocks

We supply Donati and SWF motorised and tracking wheel to replace worn end carriages wheels and motor gear boxes.  These can be fitted to existing end carriages to minimise costs and downtime to your crane.

Radio remote controls

We can retro fit radio remote controls to your existing overhead cranes, jib cranes and hoist units.    We stock Fomotech radio remote, push button controls and joystick controls.  We can also supply specific brands if required including flex, Ikusi and HBC.

Inverter Units – (Variable speed drive)

We can upgrade single speed hoist, cross travel and long travel motions to give smooth variable speed control.  Other benefits include reduced load sway and reduced brake wear and possible increased life span to wheels and motor gear boxes.

Anti- collision Device – (collision avoidance systems)

We offer various types of collision avoidance systems, including infrared, laser and radio signal technology.  Each system allows cranes to be set at a specific distance apart and stops them coming within the set parameters.

Power Supply Systems

We can supply and upgrade power supply systems.  These include 4 bar insulated conductor systems up to 630 amp, enclosed conductor system, motorised and spring operated cable reeling drum and cable festoon systems.

Cab to Pendant Control Conversions

E&C Crane Engineering have decades of experience at carrying out cab to pendant or radio remote conversions.  This includes modifying wiring, electrical control panels and if required removing redundant cabs from the crane.

Travel Limit Devices

We can offer limit devices to hoist motion, cross travel motion and long travel motions of the crane.  This can be a slow down limit or dead stop type limit.

Where required we can fit zone limiting devices to keep the crane from travelling into a specific area of the workshop, production floor or external yard.
