In 1975, Jim C. Taylor, Jr. founded a company that would grow continuously over the next 40 years to become Taylor Crane & Rigging. This year marks the 40th anniversary of TCR, and Jim’s vision and leadership is still going strong. TCR is now one of the largest Crane & Rigging companies in the region. With over 90 employees and a regular client list exceeding 500 annually, TCR is no small enterprise.

Taylor Crane and Rigging humbly began in Coffeyville, KS with just one man and a truck on a part-time basis. Now, 40 years later, it has 20 Cranes, 85 Forklifts, 5 Gantries, 98 trailers of many varieties, 28 trucks and a wide variety of other equipment to accommodate a multitude of services including heavy machinery moving, specialized transport, craning services, millwright services and more.

In 1988, TCR had grown to the point that it was necessary to start a second location. Tulsa was chosen to improve its access to its existing markets in Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma. In 2008, it acquired an industrial tract of 80 acres just northeast of Pine and Garnett. It is now able to exercise intrastate and interstate authority to work across the nation.

Taylor Crane & Rigging was honored to be recognized by American Cranes & Transport Magazine (AC&T) in 2013 in its selection of North America’s 100 Largest Crane Companies. It was recognized again in 2014 by AC&T as number 18 in the top 50 Specialized Lifting Companies or “Specialized Lifting 50.” In the same issue, it was also recognized as number 9 in the Top 10 companies with the most gantries.

TCR currently has plans to erect a new 30,000 square-foot building with overhead craning capacity in Tulsa. The facility will house Taylor's equipment and provide under-roof warehousing for clients in addition to the outside storage currently offered.

Taylor Crane & Rigging is headquartered at 1211 W. 12th Street in Coffeyville, KS. The Tulsa location is located at 1919 N. Garnett in Tulsa, OK.
