Since opening our doors in 1923, Gillespie Corporation has been designing and manufacturing a comprehensive range of manual and electric cranes. Adaptable to any rooftop- or wall-mounted requirement, our cranes typically lift and transport equipment, like HVAC components, or machinery during construction operations. Many of our end-clients are in the retail and department store industry, such as Dillard’s and Target.

Examples of our work include:



Designed to accommodate virtually any mounting situation―including socket base, sidewall, beam, roof and truck―our rooftop-mounted cranes provide the utmost in flexibility and versatility.

For more information, please contact us.


Suitable for open areas and mezzanines in indoor or outdoor locations, our wall-mounted cranes are adaptable to virtually any situation―such as being supported in a pipe socket that’s set in a concrete wall or supported on the floor and anchored to a wall.
