Canada Brand History

Today, Konecranes is the overhead crane industry leader in Canada.

Over the past 30 years we have added some of the best brands and most experienced employees in the business through our acquisitions of Kaverit Cranes & Service ULC, Overhead Crane Ltd., Provincial Services, MCL Cranes Inc., Provincial Cranes Inc. and All Cranes Parts and Services Ltd.
 

Kaverit Cranes & Service ULC, previously known as Kaverit Steel & Crane, was founded in the early 1980’s and based in Edmonton, AB, from where it expanded to serve customers throughout western and central Canada. In the mid ‘90’s, Kaverit was acquired by Morris Material Handling, the original equipment manufacturer of P&H overhead cranes, hoists and replacement parts, of Milwaukee WI. Then in 2006, Konecranes acquired Morris Material Handling along with its affiliate Kaverit, bringing Kaverit into the Konecranes family of brands.
 

Overhead Crane Ltd. has a history quite similar to Kaverit. Incorporated in 1965 as Overhead Crane Service & Supply Co. Ltd, this company served customers in Eastern Canada from its head office in Burlington ON, providing overhead cranes and crane service. In 1998, Overhead Crane was acquired by Morris Material Handling, the original equipment manufacturer of P&H overhead cranes, hoists and replacement parts, of Milwaukee WI, and subsequently became part of the Konecranes family in 2006 when Morris was acquired by Konecranes
 

Provincial Services was founded in Niagara, ON in 1979 as a manufacturer of overhead hoisting and material handling equipment. Provincial Services was acquired by Konecranes in 2008 and became part of Konecranes, the overhead crane industry’s premier organization.
 

Additionally, MCL Cranes Inc, joined the Konecranes family in 1984, All Cranes Parts & Services Ltd. became part of the team in 1996, and Provincial Cranes Inc. was added in 1998.

Today, these successful Canadian companies and brands contribute to the history and story of Konecranes, and the collective dedication to provide the best equipment and service in the overhead crane industry.
