In 1908 Henry Trester started an electric motor company. His dedication to service and distribution for the Milwaukee manufacturing community began the Trester legacy four generations ago.
Trester Hoist and Equipment was established by Rick Trester in 1995 to provide specialized knowledge on products and applications to both distribution channels and manufacturing facilities in Wisconsin. I began working with my father in 2003 and after 12 years, became President and Owner of Trester Hoist.
Metropolitan Crane and Hoist was founded in Milwaukee by Leo DeWane in 1987. What started as a single skilled crane technician, grew to a custom crane builder with a reputation for customer service and an experienced service team. In 2018 I acquired Metropolitan Crane and combined our talented teams of professional, fun and energetic problem solvers.
We are dedicated to building lasting relationships through our responsiveness, problem solving and knowledge. Our goal is to become a full service company to our valuable customers by providing confidence in the safety and reliability of their overhead lifting equipment.
Whether it’s an Emergency Service Call, an OSHA Inspection, Repairs/Replacement Parts, Custom or Workstation Cranes, Trester Hoist & Metropolitan Crane will keep your facility safe and productive.
