About D&S Hoist and Crane

D&S Hoist and Crane

A Family Company for Over 15 Years

D&S Hoist and Crane is a family company that has been providing comprehensive lifting solutions to businesses in the tri-state area and beyond for over 15 years. Founded in 1998 by Del Celaschi and his sons Steve, Rich and John, we have since grown to serve a wide range of industries as part of a dynamic, locally-owned family of companies.

Serving the Mid-Atlantic Since 1998

When we first opened our doors in 1998, we were called D&S Industrial Contracting. We began as a full-service overhead crane company that manufactures, repairs and rebuilds all types of overhead cranes and components. From blocks, trolleys, end trucks, wheel assemblies and gear boxes to complete lifting devices, we build, fabricate and source the overhead lifting equipment that businesses need to succeed. During our first year of operation we also added OSHA-required inspections to our suite of services and opened a fasteners division to provide concierge-style stockroom sourcing to area businesses.

Joining the H&K Family of Companies

In 2009 D&S Industrial Contracting merged with its neighbor, H&K Equipment, and joined the H&K Equipment Family of Companies. This dynamic network, which includes seven companies across two states, provides the full spectrum of material handling equipment as well as a wide range of resources for businesses in any industry.

A Renewed Focus on Lifting and Material Handling

In 2010 we were formally rebranded as D&S Hoist and Crane to emphasize our concentration on overhead cranes and lifting devices. Our longstanding fasteners division, while still headquartered in our Pittsburgh facility, was renamed D&S Fasteners and allowed to grow as a standalone subsidiary.

The Future of D&S Hoist and Crane

Today, midway through our second decade, D&S Hoist and Crane is proud to continue its tradition of serving the manufacturing, steel, aluminum, automotive, oil and gas, mining and nuclear energy industries that thrive in the region around Pittsburgh.

We seek to become, and remain, your "single source crane supplier."
