A Look at Over 65 Years of Service
It’s been a remarkable 65+ years for all of us here at Thackray Crane Rental. We have seen steady advancements in our equipment and have developed into a full-service company, never straying from our family owned roots.
It started in 1947 when Walter and Anna Cassalia Thackray opened up shop with just a TL20 Lorrain crane to handle all the heavy lifting our initial clients needed. Since day one, we’ve held a vision and have stayed committed to focusing on customer satisfaction. Our motto is and always will be, “Faith, Family, and Country.” All of us, from management to our valued staff members, work together to present you with the best possible customer service experience.
Thanks to your trust, we have become a company that offers much more than equipment rentals in the greater Philadelphia area. From that single TL20 Lorrain, we have grown to become a company that now operates more than 120 cranes with various capabilities and capacities. You can trust our ability to handle complex projects with:
- Hydraulic Truck Cranes
- Heavy Haul Tractors
- Rough Terrain Lulls
- Boom Trucks
- Rigging Support
With our equipment and advanced training methods, we have a thorough and distinct approach to safety measures. It’s with great pleasure that our Safety Committee has received certification and was recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.
Since our inception, we have been tasked with many projects that require certified operators and safe service for a crane rental in MD, PA, NJ, or DE. Some of the projects in which we are most proud include:
- Architecture of the Society Hill Towers
- Lifting and transporting items for the Philadelphia Museum of Art
- Construction of Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, including the implementation of over 11,000 solar panels.
- Working with Temple University to expand their construction and improve their facility
- Constructing and installing new infrastructure in the new high rise facilities at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
- And many more unique projects that have helped us become one of the Top 50 crane rental companies in North America.
With 65 years of growth, we are looking forward to the future as we stay up to date and increase our capabilities in order to serve you for many more years. Thanks to the invaluable work ethic of our staff and the trust of our clients, we couldn’t have reached and celebrated this notable mark without you!
