About Us

about allinghamFounded in 1940, Allingham Corporation has established itself as the most reputable and dependable source for crane and air compressor rentals through the metro Detroit and surrounding areas.

In 1940, Allingham Corporation was founded on a vision, strong business principals, two pieces of equipment, and four employees. The vision was that the future pointed to a need for mobile cranes that could move over streets and highways, on rubber tires, to solve lifting and material handling problems. The business principals were that a company could prosper if it made a policy of delivering the best possible service at the most economical price.


Our vision was accurate and our principals held strong. Today, Allingham Corporation has over 150 cranes and air compressors in our fleet. We are the largest privately owned company in the United States that specializes only in the rental of cranes and air compressors. We operate out of a 15,000 sq. ft. service facility and 2,000 sq. ft. parts department. Call us old fashioned, but we still believe a smile and a handshake are the best ways to do business.
