Why Piedmont Hoist & Crane

Who is Piedmont Hoist?

Starting from scratch in 1993 with not much more than several good supplier relationships, Piedmont Hoist & Crane has grown from a small service firm doing inspections and repairs to an organization of over 75 employees with over 200 years of combined experience. Customers across the nation are served by this fully trained and equipped crew of technicians.

As our business grows, Piedmont Hoist & Crane will continue its fine tradition of excellent service while building a reputation for outstanding new overhead crane equipment sales based on product knowledge, expert installation, and responsive follow-up support. Today, all of our customers benefit from the expertise and knowledge that is available from a sales staff that can call upon extensive experience in the overhead lifting industry.

Strategic Location

Piedmont Hoist & Crane is based in a modern and well-equipped manufacturing facility strategically located in Colfax, NC (metro Greensboro/Winston-Salem), a location that puts us in the center of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad. Additional Branch Locations in Reading, PA, Williamsburg, VA, New York, and Charleston, SC, allow us to service our client base locally and help reduce response time to service emergencies.

Business Diversification


Piedmont Hoist & Crane is totally committed to overhead crane and hoist lifting equipment. Every overhead product—from simple slings to the most complex overhead crane system—is offered. System design, structural analysis, and layout integration is available as well as modifications and upgrades to existing installations. Piedmont has built a reputation for competitively priced installations that are delivered on-schedule and perform as expected. Contact us for your overhead crane installation quote.


We continue our relationship with the customer through a thorough and detailed OSHA inspection program that assures our clients of compliance with all the industry regulations while meeting the preventative maintenance standards established by the equipment manufacturer. We also offer our CraneRX plan.


Beyond overhead crane installations and inspections, our company’s main focus is service and repairs. From routine maintenance to emergency repairs of mission-critical hoist and overhead crane systems, Piedmont Hoist has many certified and experienced service technicians ready to assist you.

With our headquarters located in North Carolina and satellite offices located in Virginia, South Carolina, New York and Pennsylvania, our service technicians can reach just about anywhere in the Southeast within just a few hours. If your company is in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and or Eastern Ohio, and you are in need of an emergency repair, one of our hoist and crane service techs can be at your location in just a couple of hours (Pennsylvania 2-4 hours). Does your hoist and crane system just need routine maintenance or service for a non-mission-critical system.
