About Crane

William C. Foster founded Crane Rental Service, Inc. in 1965 in its original location of Tustin, California. Bill started the company with just one conventional eight-ton crane which he ingeniously converted into a remote controlled unit.

It was his enterprising spirit that led the company from its humble beginnings to a rapid-expanding fleet of cranes. A larger facility quickly became essential and in 1974 Crane Rental Service moved to its current location in Orange, California.

This centrally located facility enabled the company to expand the number and size of cranes in its fleet and to add additional staff members who brought with them an enormous amount of wealth and knowledge in the crane industry.

Success continued and soon a second location was necessary to serve an ever growing customer base. Crane Rental Service opened its Tempe, Arizona office in 1983 operated by Ed Hass and run with the same spirit and inspiration as Bill Foster.

In October 2011 Bill gifted over the stock of the California Corporation to his Children, Cathy, Kim, Greg and Lori, who have been running the business on a daily basis for more than 25 years. In 2013 Crane Rental Service of California officially became certified as a Woman Owned Small Business.
