Dennis & Jerry Smith, founders Certified Crane Service
Jerry and Dennis Smith started in the crane business in 1972 and 1973, respectively. They soon joined forces to form Smith Brothers Crane Rental. Their early one-man cranes were adapted to allow travel control from the operating position. This enabled them to do extensive work with boilermakers, building big water tanks, as well as huge oil storage tanks in refineries. They were also useful on steel erecting jobs, notably installing columns in tilt-up buildings.
Certified Crane Service and Smith Brothers Crane Rental, Inc. still has customers from those early years, notably steel erecting companies and other construction related businesses. In fact 90% of our business is repeat business. That said, we always welcome new customers. Our new clients soon learn how we earned the many years of loyalty from our original business partners. We are a small, friendly outfit that is unafraid to take on a big job. We are a company that makes a special effort to tailor to the needs of our customers. Let us work with you to make your job a success, too!
Over the years, our projects have included Los Angeles’ Aerospace Museum and the Science Museum, the Artesia and Harbor Freeway Interchange, Disney Concert Hall, DreamWorks’ Glendale Complex and most recently the new Business Building at El Camino College.
We started out in the business with this Bantam T350 8-Ton.
In forty-plus years in the business, there isn’t much in the way of crane usage we haven’t seen.
Our operators and crew are randomly drug tested, OECP Certified for Operating and Rigging & Signaling. They also have TWIC Cards.
