Profile: Lampson International

A key part of the success at Lampson is our International presence. While our main offices are in the US, Canada and Australia in our 73 years doing business we have operated in over 55 countries including Korea, Brazil, Chile, Scotland, Russia, and many more. 

One of our closest International partners is Japanese multinational conglomerate, Hitachi, Ltd headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. Hitachi is a highly diversified company that operates in eleven business segments: Information & Telecommunication Systems, Social Infrastructure, High Functional Materials & Components, Financial Services, Power Systems, Electronic Systems & Equipment, Automotive Systems, Railway & Urban Systems, Digital Media & Consumer Products, Construction Machinery and Other Components & Systems. 

Partnering with Hitachi over the last 30 years we built our largest crane, the Lampson Transi-Lift® LTL 3000 for their Japanese operations. The Lampson Transi-Lift® LTL-3000 is one of the world’s most versatile Heavy Lift Crawler Cranes and boasts a patented configuration that combines the heavy lifting capabilities of stiff leg derricks and ring mounted lift equipment with the mobility of a conventional crawler crane. The Lampson Transi-Lift® LTL-3000 specifications include:

  • 3000 ton lift capacity
  • 400 ft of main boom
  • 120 ft jib
  • 520 ft Boom length
