Olsen Crane

Craig C. Olsen: President and General Manager

After being in the steel fabrication business with his 2 brothers for 25 years, he decided to do something with his 2 sons Steve and Bryce. The fabrication business was involved in the building of heavy plate bridge girders for the highway systems throughout the Western United States. Bridge girders were built in all sizes and shapes with some up to 202 feet long and weighing up to 105 ton. The Olsen's commited to and bonded projects that required some design work, fabrication, and painting, shipping and the field installation as required by contact. Having been involved in all types of cranes, crane placement, rigging, load charts, and all aspects of steel erection it was only natural for Mr. Olsen and his sons to get involved with the crane rental business. In 2000, after completion of the design/build of the 1.2 Billion Dollar I-15 reconstruction project in Salt Lake City, which required 56 steel bridges, Mr. Olsen sold his share of the business to his brothers and started CC Olsen and Sons Crane Service.

Steve C. Olsen: V.P.Operations, Manager, Critical lift Coordinator

In 1995 Steve started his career as a crane operator for his dad and uncle in the fabrication yard. His duties required him to operate 100 & 150 Ton crawler cranes to unload rail cars with all sizes of plate and structural steel, pick and carry heavy steel bridge girders, and loading of trucks or rail cars for delivery to job sites. in 1998 he started to work for Olsenbeal where he got experience operating 90 ton cranes for rough terrain, P&H 138 Lattice Boom, and M-2250 & M-250 Manitowoc Crawler Cranes with some Luffer jib requirements.

Bryce J. Olsen: V.P.Safety, Maintanance, Records, and Dispatch.

In 2002 Bryce came to work with us after working with Equipment Rental Store, being responsible for all the parts for equipment repair. He has become as good an operator as there is. Many of our clients request Bryce to be on their jobs, because of his great personality and willingness to work hard to see his jobs through.
