Cranes are the workhorses of the port and shipyard worlds. This critical asset has to stand up to years of use in very rugged environments. In order for these machines to stay in top working order, they need to be evaluated from time to time to ensure the structural integrity of the equipment. Our company has an experienced team of engineers who can inspect your equipment for operational performance and integrity. A mechanical/structural engineer physically reviews the crane and generates a report of any issues found along with a plan of action and budget for repair.
Reading Crane and Engineering Co. is certified under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Regulations of Title 29 to perform inspections and issue certifications on port equipment. We can provide quadrennial and annual load testing of cranes along with inspection services. Our technician will do a thorough inspection of the crane and document any potential issues or problems. Once the inspection is completed and any issues resolved, a final report and certificate are provided showing the crane is in maritime compliance.
Ports and Shipyards use a variety of equipment to keep running. This equipment needs routine and emergency maintenance. Our company can provide both embedded and on demand service and support to help keep your equipment running at the optimum level.
We provide full-time service and support to both private and military operations. We provide coverage as required at the facility to provide all or a majority of the service work and support. Our team works alongside the facility personnel to keep operations moving and equipment running.

We can also provide service and support on a per request basis. Each project is evaluated by a service technician or engineer to provide a detailed proposal and price for the required work. A schedule is determined, and the appropriate personnel are dispatched to site.
We provide an experienced group of Project Managers and Engineers to execute projects of all sizes. No project is too large or too small. Each project gets a dedicated project manager to make sure that the customer’s project is executed in a safe and timely manner. Project schedules are developed with the customers input and milestones are set. Updates are routinely provided to appraise the customer of project schedule and potential issues.
Our project team can handle large projects. In cases where we need specialized work that is not within our team, we can bring in sub-contractors to help support the customers needs. With over 100 years of experience, we have developed relationships with high quality partners that meet the requirements of our company’s standards.
Electrical control systems are at the heart of operation of every crane. As systems age, they become obsolete and hard to support which generates unwanted downtime. When evaluating the requirements of an upgrade, it is important to partner with a company that has experience in both the design and implementation of the systems. Installations can be especially challenging and require personnel who can understand the old systems documentation and correspond it to the new control systems installation. In many cases, time is critical, and upgrades must be done in a short period of time. It is important to have an experienced partner who understands this and can ensure the work is done properly.
We have designed systems and worked with major control suppliers including:
