Linian Crane and Hoist

Established in 1974, Linian Crane & Hoist is a specialist lifting and handling engineering company

We produce all types and sizes of hoists, cranes and general lifting equipment, for organisations throughout the UK and worldwide. As independent agents for many other hoist manufacturers, we are not tied to any particular range, meaning we can propose the best and most cost-effective solution to suit your needs and circumstances.


We can offer many differing models of cranes to cater for loads ranging from 125 kg to 20 tonnes. Our range of cranes has electrically motor driven end carriages and they are designed to supply immense accuracy when dealing with heavy materials.

Our crane models include:

  • Overhead cranes
  • Swing jib cranes
  • Single girder overslung cranes
  • Double girder cranes
  • Underslung cranes


We manufacture and supply a wide range of hoists that are all built to the highest standards. They are extremely versatile in order to meet all requirements. We provide unique 'low headroom' models that are suitable for small spaces but can still provide the same amount of force and lift power as other models.

Our range of hoists includes:
