Our History

Founded in 1932 and an electric motor shop in Atlanta, GA, Ace started making a name for itself as a customer focused and forward-thinking organization. During the 1970s and 1980s, Ace became a Master Dealer for Columbus McKinnon Corp., and started stocking products manufactured by CM, Coffing, Lift-Tech, and Yale. At this time, we began focusing on distributing material handling products. As the need emerged, we started manufacturing bridge cranes and runways.

Ace opened its first service branch in 1996 and we haven't stopped since. Certified Crane Care was acquired in 2007 to complement our brand in Alabama. In 2012 we purchased Gaffey Cranes from Columbus McKinnon to enter the explosion-proof market. Henohl Crane’s acquisition in Phoenix AZ helped us enter the market on the West Coast in 2017.

Today we have over thirty service and manufacturing facilities across the United States and pride ourselves on the fact that we are the largest independent crane & hoist company in the United States.
