From Muskegon, MI in 1951 to Pittsburgh, PA in 1966, Bill Krueger had spent much of his working life gaining knowledge in large heavy duty cranes and hoists. He used this experience to get into field sales selling heavy duty cranes to the steel industry for the then Dresser Crane & Hoist Company. It was in 1976 that Bill and Lois Krueger were able to use their skills to start Keystone Crane & Hoist and grow it into what it is today.
He worked hard to build up Keystone’s reputation until 2019 when he passed away. Keystone is now being operated by Bill and Lois’ daughter, Christine “Krueger” Cowler and her husband Jim Cowler. They carry on the tradition of a family owned and operated business insuring dependability, unsurpassed service and a commitment to high quality products.
