About Mussell Crane
Mussell Crane Manufacturing is an aboriginal owned and operated company that was founded in 1991 by owner Fred Mussell. Their primary business is the design, fabrication, freight, installation and service of overhead bridge cranes, gantry cranes, jib cranes, and custom design material handling equipment.
Located in Chilliwack, BC with production facilities totaling over 50,000 sq. ft., they are close to the U.S border and have options of rail and water transportation nearby. They have developed into a major manufacturer/supplier to commercial, military, and government sectors all over Canada and the United States, with production output of approximately 200 cranes per year.
Since their conception Fred has strived to have a turn-key company. By keeping all aspects in-house, this has enabled them to excel beyond the competition when it comes to deliveries and accountability. In-house engineering and design utilizes computer-aided software such as AutoCAD, Solid Works, and GibbsCAM to ensure efficient, precise, and technical production. Their CWB, CSA, and AWS certified shops have devoted over 30,000 sq. ft. specifically for fabrication, sub-arc and flex core welding, cutting, and painting bays.
Another 8,000 sq. ft. is for CNC machining and gear cutting of Mussell Wheels and other crane components. These components are not only for their own use but are also purchased by other crane companies across North America.
One area they standout above the rest is freight and installation. With their own commercial transport fleet equipped with Hiab truck cranes, they provide freight, professional installation, and load testing & commissioning. This allows them to eliminate the unnecessary fees of a third party company and have full control of a project from beginning to end.
After a project is completed your relationship with Mussell Crane doesn’t have to end there. They offer many services beyond the final commissioning such as after-sales support and customer service on all parts of your equipment. Mussell Crane’s service technicians are fully trained and experienced to deal with all equipment malfunctions and breakdowns. They also offer monthly, bi-annually, and annually inspections to increase safety, prevent costly breakdowns, and meet WorkSafeBC requirements.
Mussell Crane’s on-site and in-house training department not only offers customized training for overhead cranes but also for many other applications including, but not limited to, forklift, scissor lift, and fall protection.
