Star Crane and Hoist

It all began with a dream to start a family business 

Larry Derks started in the crane business back in 1963 working for a well—known crane mfg., starting out as a draftsman moving up to an estimating engineer then as a subcontractor that brought him around the world working on crane projects. Larry made the decision with his son Craig to come home to west Michigan and start a crane service company concentrating on the customer and filling all their service needs 24-7. 

Star Crane & Hoist was founded in western Michigan in 1985 as a family owned business, with Larry’s 20+ years of crane experience, at the time from Larry’s previous positions, and Craig with his automotive and drafting experience, they went for it. 

In 2022 we joined Lift Solutions Holdings Company – a national industrial lifting solutions company focused on inspection, repair, and replacement products for overhead cranes, hoists and below the hook products.  

Today the headquarters is in Allendale, Michigan that houses sales, service and fabrication operations. Over the years One Crane Source was developed as distributorships evolved with sales and service facilities in Saginaw, Kalamazoo, Traverse City, Detroit, Bowling Green Ohio, Columbus Ohio, Cleveland Ohio, Angola Indiana, South Bend Indiana, Milwaukee Wisconsin, Elizabethtown Kentucky, Denver Colorado, Roselle Illinois, and Griffin Georgia. 

Throughout the years there have been many expansions, new distributorships, and numerous awards as the premier crane company of the Midwest and the United States. The family business continues to flourish, with a brother, a son and daughter, as well as cousins in the business and is a testament to Larry’s passing in 2010. The growth continues, yet the ideals remain the same: 

Building long—term business partnerships by meeting the needs of each and every customer with the absolute highest quality of products and services. 

The customer base crosses every conceivable product and service line from nuclear to entertainment to educational, along with many more. A key measure of the success of the company is their commitment to faith, family, and their employees as well as ALL their customers. All this has brought them long term recognition as the crane and hoist industry leader for the Great Lakes Region.

ASC Industries

ASC Industries (known as Alloy Sling Chain) started in 1970. Most of the business was surrounded by the steel and related industries. ASC was well known for the ability to fabricate fully welded chain slings that were very large in diameter for lifting applications in Steel plants. To this day, ASC Industries is one of 2 or 3 that continues to make welded chain slings for clients throughout the USA. As ASC grew, they decided to continue to diversify and became one the largest distribution centers under one roof for carrying several constructions of wire rope for a broad range of industries. Large companies like Caterpillar, Commonwealth Edison (now Exelon, one of the largest utility companies in the country), Alcoa and other industries were part of the portfolio. ASC Industries became a major provider of custom lifting devices for customers throughout the country and a Slingmax Twin-Path franchise provides many industries we cater to with new technology for lifting . Our company continued to grow and getting more involved with the construction industry. Our business philosophy included continuous training to our clients on safe operating practices using the products we provide. In 2003 we signed an agreement that turned our company into an exclusive distributor in the USA for one of the most prestigious High Performance Engineered Rope Companies in the world, Python Wire Rope. We were now ASC Industries Python America. One of our proud moments was the lifting of the spheres with the Slingmax Twin-Path slings on top of the Freedom Tower in New York City with our East Coast Python dealer, The Bilco Group. Our Python Rope was also on the tower crane that made that historic lift (you can see on YouTube). Presently we are grateful to our employees that have been with us over the years to help us be one of the largest Rigging and Fabrication facility under one roof. With 130, 000 square feet and 4000 tons of rope, we are committed to being a platform for our customers in the lifting, turning, positioning, and securement business.
