Thomas Auringer is the Founder and CEO of U.S. Crane & Rigging, and is widely regarded as “The King of Infrastructure.”
Auringer founded U.S. Crane and Rigging in 2000, and to this day it remains a family-owned business. U.S. Crane and Rigging is America’s top project supplier for all-terrain cranes, hammerheads, luffer, internal or external tower cranes, and derricks. The company offers bare crane rentals, specialized hoisting and rigging, heavy lifts and transport, warehousing, and more. The company offers a broad range of customized solutions to satisfy even the most precise demands.
“Our most valuable resource is our employees and through them, we provide a completely managed solution. Our methodology involves value engineering consultation and an extensive review focused on preparation, planning, and engineering for all crane rentals, trucking, and rigging operations,” explains Auringer.
But Thomas Auringer’s passions extend far beyond supplying great machinery. As CEO of a cornerstone company, Auringer carries a special heart for diversity and inclusion. His company employs an unheard-of 90% minority employees, most of whom have stayed with the company for more than half a decade.
In work environments in our country that have been ravaged by a pandemic, social unrest, and political distrust, companies like Auringer’s are helping to take a stand for creating safe, inclusive, and healthy work cultures for employees of all backgrounds. Auringer knows that a company is only as strong as the culture within it, and he’s actively worked to build relationships and create a vision that helps each employee thrive.
As a case in point, all supervisors at U.S. Crane and Rigging are promoted from within, attesting to a thriving internal culture.
Auringer explains, “We pride ourselves in being an equal opportunity employer. U.S. Crane & Rigging makes it a tradition to pay its employees fair wages, and we value the contribution each employee makes to the growth of the company.”
U.S. Crane and Rigging is generally known for being among the most safety-conscious crane and rigging companies in the world. The company offers assembly, disassembly, and full engineering support by the in-house staff building seamless operations, customized to the specific demands of the client.
