Whiting Tiger Cranes
The Standard for Heavy-Duty Overhead Cranes
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.
Our designs and quality of manufacturing reflect our years of experience in providing material handling solutions for mission-critical process applications that reduce the total cost of ownership of your crane.
Why Choose Whiting?
Every Whiting overhead crane starts with listening. Our sales personnel and application engineers partner with our clients to design and build a custom crane that maximizes performance, maintainability, reliability, and ROI.
Whiting’s expertise is known throughout the material handling industry. Whiting engineers sit on Crane Manufacturers Associaton of America (CMAA) committees dedicated to the structural, mechanical, and electrical designs and standards. Whiting is one of a very small group of companies that produce and service overhead cranes for nuclear power generating facilities. We sit on the Nuclear Overhead and Gantry Cranes (NOG-1) committee which creates the standards for crane design and use at nuclear facilities.
Whiting also offers complete single source responsibility for all crane components from design through manufacturing, installation, and lifetime support through our sister company, Whiting Services.
