A MESSAGE FROM OUR PUBLISHER

Crane & Hoist just turned 15 – and you’re invited to the birthday party! Our March/April 2024 issue looks back on the last decade and a half of the publication, covering the stories and major changes that have driven the industry since our publication began.

Saul Chernos leads this stroll down memory lane in a two-part retrospective, first looking at what has changed – and what has stayed the same – across Canada’s crane and heavy lifting industry since Crane & Hoist began 15 years ago. His second part looks to the memorable stories from across the sector over last decade and a half that have made our magazine what it is today.

Ontario’s CanLift Equipment is also celebrating their 15th birthday. Editor Mike Lacey met with owners Marko and Johnny Dragicevic to look back on their journey in building one of the province’s leading lifting solutions providers.

With new developments in the Kelowna crane collapse investigation, Matt Jones takes readers up to speed on where things currently stand and how the industry is responding to this tragedy two years later.

Crane & Hoist’s associate editor Jack Burton shines a spotlight on crawler cranes; digging into the latest crawler models on the market to help your heavy lifting operations boldly tread forward.

A series of high-profile tower crane incidents over the last few months have generated questions about crane safety in British Columbia. WorkSafeBC’s Doug Younger offers the answers in our Safety Corner column.

In our Association News column, the CCRA shares a report breaking down the hiring and staffing problems currently faced by crane operations.

Enjoy the issue!
