About Us

Our Mission: Training is an investment that pays. Fewer accidents, higher morale and greater productivity are but a few of the dividends. At Columbus McKinnon, we are committed to promoting the safe and efficient use of overhead cranes, hoists and rigging equipment to keep your business running and your workers injury free.

What We Do: Whether you need to meet OSHA or ASME requirements, receive overhead crane and rigging certification, or simply gain the peace of mind that comes from having a safer work environment, Columbus McKinnon can help.

With dedicated team members, comprehensive and challenging curriculum and state-of-the-art training centers, we bring you professionally developed courses that highlight safe rigging and lifting techniques as well as accurate and timely product maintenance.

  • Properly secure loads
