In the past, rigging referred to a system of ropes and pulleys used to support a ship’s masts. As technology evolved, the definition of rigging expanded to include the process in which objects are raised and moved into position. Today, rigging equipment, such as cranes, are used in a variety of settings including, manufacturing facilities, shipyards, cargo ports, and construction sites.
Over the last quarter of a century, the technology used in industrial rigging has made the process of lifting heavy objects and placing them more efficiently. Lee Contracting uses a variety of gantry systems and cranes which have a capacity up to 1,200 tons, to set your heaviest equipment. Gantry cranes allow us to set the heaviest pieces of equipment. We recently stacked two 2500-ton stamping presses. The crowns for each of the presses weighed 272 tons.
In addition to gantry cranes, Lee Contracting also has a fleet of several other cranes. We have three Broderson cranes with a capacity up to 50,000 pounds,
an Ormig crane with a pick and carry 70-ton capacity, a Lifts-Systems mobile lifter with a 75-ton capacity, a Terex crane with a 70-ton capacity and a Grove crane with a 300-ton capacity.
