Our inspection work is preformed by qualified inspectors under the direction of qualified professional engineers.

Our inspectors will assess the condition of your equipment through comprehensive visual inspection, non-destructive testing, review of service and maintenance logs, functional testing and load/stability testing where required by the manufacturer or Safety Code.

We provide detailed Inspection Reports indicating all items that have been inspected. All detected deficiencies, with corrective actions, are provided.

In the event that structural damage is identified, we have engineering assistance readily available to advise on required remedial actions. We also have close working relationships with several companies who can perform welded repairs.

Engineer-sealed Certificates of Inspection are provided for all Annual Crane Inspections. We have engineers registered in Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and North West Territories.

Our annual inspection and preventative maintenance programs are customized to your corporate and regulatory requirements. These programs will assist you in optimizing the use of your lifting equipment, thereby reducing costly equipment downtime and emergency repairs and breakdowns.
