The Whiting brand has been a trusted name in the overhead crane industry for over 100 years. Each Whiting crane is custom designed and built to your exact specifications. All of our overhead bridge cranes are proudly assembled in our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility near Chicago while adhering to the strictest quality standards.
Whiting’s mechanical, structural, electrical and analytical engineering teams design and produce overhead cranes that meet practically any industry challenge. Whiting also has pre-engineered designs for low cost and rapid delivery.
Whiting looks at each crane based on the customer application requirements. We don’t use the “kit crane–type” of design and manufacturing philosophy for our heavy-duty, high-performance products.
Reactor servicing cranes, or polar cranes, operate on a circular runway located near the spring line of the containment/reactor building. These cranes are primarily used for the removal and replacement of the reactor head, as well as during the refueling process.
