I have enjoyed working in the US crane industry since the early 1970’s.

During the last 50 years our country has experienced tremendous change.

Since the prosperity of the 1960’s and through the energy crisis of the 1970’s, the American crane industry has continuously evolved and adapted to challenging market conditions. The 1980’s saw an increase in technology and communication industries while a large number of manufacturing jobs left the US for cheap labor markets abroad.

By the 1990’s new technology in the crane industry prompted customers to expect more from each crane manufacturer.

Since the year 2000 many manufacturing jobs have returned to the US. Many companies are once again investing in manufacturing facilities which require material handling solutions and new crane products and services.

I started F&G Industries in 1987 and have remained true to the idea of providing our customers with the best products and services available and the most competitive solution in the market. Through the years, our customer’s success has also been our own success and we have grown together.

F&G has always been a company committed to safety and a life long trust with our customers.

In this changing economic climate it is important to choose your business partners wisely. GH has been a very important supplier relationship for our business for the last several years.

I am very pleased to announce a new level of relationship with our trusted partner. GH provides F&G Industries with the most advanced crane solutions ever to be sold in the US market. Their global presence, cutting edge technology and superior customer service allows our company to compete in a way which did not exist before this new agreement.

GH will allow us to grow in the right direction and address any new customer demand. With GH’s wealth of experience in standard and specialty cranes, we expect to offer new crane solutions to a variety of vertical markets.

It is a pleasure to be able to share this information in this month’s issue of GH’ News. We look forward to sharing many success stories in the future as a result of this new partnership.
