Our Story

As a full-service tower crane company with over 30 years of experience helping customers complete all kinds of construction projects safely, efficiently, and effectively, Skycrane has grown into a committed team of industry experts with an ever-growing network of contacts all over the world that allow us to provide the most knowledgeable service, competitive pricing, and high-quality equipment.

In May of 1988, Jim Howard, a hard-working Canadian contractor from the Burlington area and our company’s founder, started his own local tower crane service. In 1996, Jim re-located his company’s head offices to Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Skycrane’s capabilities have since grown to encompass every service facet of the tower crane industry from project planning to equipment sales and rentals to erection, operation, and dismantling.

We help customers all over the world complete every type of project. With countless national and international projects on our resume, we know the ins and outs of transporting equipment and will take care of you every step of the way until you’re lifting with the best tower crane for your job.
