The largest privately owned crane sales and rental company in North America started with one crane … and one family with a vision.

It was 1964 when Michael C. Liptak, Jr. and his brothers, Jake and Larry, first recognized the need for the equipment rental industry. Mike and Jake had been working in the quarries, running cranes. Larry had just returned from serving in the Army. The brothers, along with Mike’s wife, Marvine, knew that contractors usually owned their equipment, including all the headaches and expense of maintaining it. And that expensive equipment on their books didn’t necessarily pay for itself very fast.

The light bulb went on.

In a flash of entrepreneurial clarity, the Liptak brothers bought themselves a crane and began renting it. Marvine provided administrative support. The fleet began to grow with cranes and trucks they bought and sold at auctions … and a family business, not to mention a new industry, was born.

By backing their business with hard work, reliable products, and outstanding customer service, they believed they had laid the foundation for a company that would stand the test of time.

Over the years, the brothers built their own engine shop, weld shop, paint shop, and other support in order to service and maintain all their own equipment.

They acquired other established crane companies to help serve their growing customer base, and the family company became The ALL Family of Companies. Central Contactors Service in Chicago joined in 1977. Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental in Wisconsin joined in 1978. Jeffers Crane Service in Ohio and Michigan joined in 1995. Today, the company’s many strategic locations dot the map.

The Liptak family’s drive to succeed, their dedication to each other and the business, and their pride in their reliability and exceptional customer service didn’t go unrewarded. Today, ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. is a world-class organization with over 1,400 dedicated employees and thousands of satisfied customers, with locations in 13 U.S. states as well as Ontario and Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada.

The ALL Family of Companies today still thinks and works like a family, thanks to the combined efforts of several generations of Liptaks and the dedicated team they have assembled. The original founders remain active in day-to-day operations, and second- and third-generation family members can be found in a variety of roles throughout the company.

The original vision of a dynamic, forward-thinking company, able to anticipate and meet the changing needs of its customers, has flourished. The ALL Family of Companies’ global reach, customized local support, and commitment to investing in long-term incremental growth have made them a world leader in lift equipment.
