Crane Rental Company Inc. was started in the early 1930s by Scott’s great grandfather, Roy Daniel Kauffman. Scott was the fourth generation in the family to own and run the company.

With the addition of Crane Rental Company Inc., M-L Holdings Company Crane Group increases its crane-service fleet to 293 cranes ranging in capacity from 8.5 to 625 tons. Collectively, its companies have 565 trailers, 365 road tractors, and 87 forklifts in 15 full-service branch locations that include 540 employees.
