Message from the President

The Koerner name has been associated with cranes for many decades. My father, Bernard Koerner, Sr started in the business in 1959 and retired in 1986. A straightforward man traditional in his ways, he taught me a lot about cranes and business.

I learned the importance of maintaining a solid reputation. For this reason, I am always focused on quality, both in terms of equipment and unmatched  service to customers. I believe this ensures that the reputation of Bruce R. Koerner Cranes will always remain untarnished.

In carrying on the Koerner principles of intergrity and uncompromising service, I look forward to serving you well and maintaining our long tradition of excellence.



Our Focus is on making sure everything goes smoothly so your project is completed on time and on budget.

  • Planning – We check all the details for proper safe positioning of the crane based on:  The height of the building; determination of the radius for safe and accurate placement; how close the crane can be set up based on ground type; underground or overhead utilities, and tunnels that may collapse; accessibility to the area; permits required; the need for special rigging; unusual circumstances; as well as the size of the object and its weight including rigging.
  • Scheduling – We understand that everything must come together at the right moment.  Our one-stop approach to storage, transport, rigging and cranes help ensure success.
  • Safety – Our fleet is modern and well maintained.  Our yards are organized to avoid damage to stored materials, and all projects are preformed by trained experienced operators who submit to random drug testing.
  • Responsiveness – We provide crane service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
