The History of LINK-BELT

  Stronger, longer lasting construction cranes with greater reach make Link-Belt Construction Equipment the world leader in lifting equipment. The company also emphasizes the quality design and appearance of its cranes.

Link-Belt has begun using Ruukki's special steels in the construction of new generation telescopic booms. Ruukki's Optim high strength steel grade not only meets and exceeds Link-Belt's specifications for strength, weight and durability; the incredible surface quality of the steel allows the company and its customers to save a significant amount of money in the preparation of working surfaces for each crane boom.


“The painted booms on Link-Belt cranes have become our hallmark and hallmark of quality,” said Dave Necessari, Link-Belt Materials Supply Manager. “This is exactly what customers want to see, and this is the main reason why the surface of steel is extremely important to us, more than to anyone in this field. Ruukki steel helps us achieve such a superior look for our cranes,” he said.


For Link-Belt, quality is key as the global demand for cranes has increased significantly over the past ten years, thanks in large part to the rapid development of the oil and gas industry as well as infrastructure projects in developing countries. According to BBC Research forecasts, in 2013 the global market will exceed $29.3 billion. At the same time, infrastructure projects have also become more complex and require crane design upgrades to be more agile in operation.


The 130-year-old Lexington, Kentucky-based company, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Industries, has left its competitors far behind in terms of innovation. Link-Belt has developed a separate type of telescopic boom and lattice boom cranes, which have lifting capacities ranging from 27 to 250 tons, and are built using the latest materials and technologies.
