Big Horn Crane Service Ltd was started in Calgary in 1976 with one 8-ton picker. In 1987, a shop was opened in Red Deer. In 1991, the company was purchased by two of the employees and a third partner. All three partners still work in the business. In 1997 Big Horn expanded from being just a picker service company to include oilfield transportation services. We now have a fleet of 21 power units, 30 trailers, jeeps, boosters, rig mats, tanks and manifolds. Our clients include most of the major oil and gas companies as well as many service companies. Some of our relationships can be traced back more than 20 years. Indeed, the relationship with one of our clients can be traced all the way back to 1976. From our larger shop in Red Deer and a smaller shop in Calgary, we can provide service all over Alberta as well as parts of Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
Big Horn Crane Service Ltd is fully committed to implementing, and strictly adhering to, the highest standards of safety for our employees and our clients. As such, we’re registered with Avetta, ComplyWorks and ISNetworld (ISN). We've also received our Certificate of Recognition (COR) as a partner in injury reduction with the Government of Alberta.
