Learn More About Emerson Crane Rental Inc

Emerson Crane Rental Inc was started on June 2, 1995 when R. Scott Emerson bought a 1976 Grove TMS 300LP. With the help of the Service Roofing Company, Scott rented building space to house the crane as well as a small part of the office.

In 1998, the land was purchased at 3488 Wagner Rd. in Waterloo, IA. Erection of a steel building was begun so as to house the crane and office. Our fleet has over time expanded to include 5 cranes, ranging from 33-ton to 275-ton cranes.

Over the years, our three sons, Chad, Derek and John, have become part of the business. Chad is the Ethanol Coordinator and Operations Manager. Both Derek and John are Operators.
