Continuous product development
Innovation has always been at the heart of the Street Crane and over the following decades, Peter Street pioneered new overhead crane technology that kept the business ahead of all the major competition.
As the first CAD programmes became available, the company was quick to capitalise on this technology and used it to develop new lightweight box beam design and their hugely successful NX hoist range.
Building a global network
In the late 1980s, Street Crane had firmly established itself with over 50% of the UK crane market and the business realised that it now had to grow its export business in order to provide sustainable growth.
They realised that the key to this export market was to develop and launch a world-beating standard product. Further investment in FEA and CAD technology meant that their NX could evolve to incorporate more unique hoisting features and the first generation of ZX wire rope hoists was born.
Starting with a small handful of carefully selected distributors dotted around the world, Street Crane now has over 80 distribution partners covering every corner of the planet.
