Overhead gantries

The Electric Overhead Gantry Crane is the most widely used factory crane in the world, especially for manufacturing and maintenance. They provide close to 100% coverage of factory floors and work well in conjunction with production lines. Gantry cranes can be installed during the construction process or also into an existing structure by a number of methods.

Working with our German partners, SWF Krantechnik, we supply cranes with high quality components which are tested to the highest standards of German and European engineering.

Cranes supplied by Irish Crane & Lifting are fabricated in our Killarney workshop and fitted with SWF crane components, they are then transported, erected and fully tested and certified on site to exacting standards.
