Rick Musarra established Goldfields Crane Hire in 1994, and took Craig O’Donnell on board as a business partner in 2005. The business later moved into the state’s north-west, the Northern Territory and Perth, under the name Cranecorp Australia.

The business has made more than $10 million in acquisitions in the four years to June 2018, buying Geraldton company MRM Crane Hire in 2014 and assets from Canning Vale-based Force Cranes in 2018. The largest was the purchase of assets from Port Hedland business Gravity Cranes in 2017.

Cranecorp now operates a fleet of 44 cranes. Clients include BHP Nickel West, Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines, Gold Fields, Norton Gold Fields, Glencore, AngloGold Ashanti, and Leighton Contractors.
