This is where it all began, over 50 years ago. Designing, fabricating, and installing the world’s best crane products, are the foundation of our business. Since 1981, HOJ Innovations has been the official builder for Konecranes crane products. We have an entire team dedicated to after-installation service, crane testing, training, and certification. That means HOJ Innovations is the one-stop shop for everything you need to run a modern industrial facility. When others say it’s impossible to do it all, we continuously prove them wrong.
Made in Salt Lake City, Utah, our overhead cranes are fabricated and assembled at HOJ’s own 26,000 sq. ft. manufacturing building. We work with our clients in identifying the overhead crane configuration to create optimal efficiency. Here’s just a few overhead crane types that we specialize in:
- Box Girder
- Top Riding
Our bridge cranes conform with established industry standards in manufacturing and quality. Our crane manufacturing and assembly teams are equipped with modern production technology. Not only that, we utilize advance software tools, along with welding, layout tables, and skilled fabricators to build your overhead cranes with the correct camber and performance for the loads you need to lift.
Because of HOJ’s commitment to excellence, we partner with the top brands in the crane industry.

Why Choose Hoj?
In 1964, Denmark native Henning Hoj was a one-man operation with a big dream. It started with the idea of providing racking, shelving, and equipment solutions to companies in the Intermountain West. He brought his background in mechanical engineering and productivity (as well as his family) to Salt Lake City, Utah.
From the company’s humble beginnings, HOJ Innovations has grown to a team of more than 150 employees and $60M in annual sales. HOJ is still headquartered in Salt Lake City and has become a trusted partner to companies throughout the U.S and internationally.
A lot has changed since ’64, with the addition of seven interconnected operations that cover the full range of material handling products and services. One thing that hasn’t changed in 50+ years, is the HOJ team’s passion, dedication and expertise.
