About MVTTC
Give a warm welcome to our newest member: E-Crane International USA – we appreciate you being a part of Mississippi Valley Trade & Transport Council!
E-Crane International USA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Indusign N.V., a Belgian engineering company. ECI-USA is the exclusive provider of marketing, sales, engineering, product support, and spare parts for the E-Crane product line in North and South America.
The “E” in E-Crane stands for Equilibrium. The design is based on a parallelogram style boom that provides a direct mechanical connection between the counterweight and the load, ensuring that the E-Crane remains balanced throughout its working range. Compared to conventional cranes that require as much as 80% of their available energy just to move the boom, stick, and grab, the E-Crane makes gravity work for you instead of against you, reducing horsepower requirements and power consumption by up to 50%, and significantly reducing maintenance and operating costs.
The E-Crane series offers models with up to 50 tons duty cycle capacity and 150 ft/50m horizontal outreach. Its modular design allows each E-Crane to be tailor-made to the client’s specific requirements.
