Production Process

Our Production Process: Decades of Experience are the Raw Material… Innovation Puts it to Use!

Our tradition of in-house manufacturing makes us uniquely qualified to produce your next crane system. North American Industries has decades of experience custom-fabricating its equipment to order, and a part of that tradition is a continually evolving fabrication and management programs that keep our process up-to-date, accurate, and efficient.

Project Management
From the time an order is placed to the time your equipment leaves our facility, our customer control process ensures that you will have one primary contact at NAI, who will oversee the design and fabrication of your project from beginning to end, and who will be your advocate as production takes place. Once you have approved drawings, your project manager will schedule the fabrication work for your project on our master schedule, coordinating with our purchasing and inventory departments to ensure the materials are in place and that the crane will be fully fabricated in time for your promised delivery date.

Production Floor
The cornerstone of our entire fabrication process is the outstanding group of people who carry it out. Experienced skilled craftsmen work in our 55,000 square-foot facility to produce an average of 500 complete and component cranes per year, in five main areas of expertise: machining, electrical, steel fabrication, painting, and shipping / receiving.

All of our fabrication employees are skilled and many are certified in their particular trade, from Class A welders to electricians. Many production floor workers also participate in developing their own safety and training programs.

But it’s not just their skills or hands-on attitudes that make our production floor employees the cream of the crop—it’s also their experience. The average employee has 11 years’ manufacturing experience in our plant, and many have more than 20 years!
