Engineered Systems, Inc. History

Engineered Systems, Inc. was founded in 1969 by Mr. Larry LaPlue, PE.  The principle focus of the early years was to provide quality “engineered crane and hoist systems” to customers in the Carolinas and Georgia.  It was not long before Mr. LaPlue discovered that there was a great need for quality hoist and crane services in this region.  Over the last forty-nine years, Engineered Systems, Inc. has become the premier hoist and crane service company in the Carolinas and one of the largest in the country.  We now offer a complete range of services, from field inspections and repairs, to load testing, and the in-shop repairs of hoists.

During the past thirty-three years, Engineered Systems, Inc. has expanded their business, to become one of the most comprehensive crane and hoist companies in the south.  From the design, fabrication, and installation of cranes and hoists, to the provision of quality service, with a fully stocked parts department, we now supply hoist and crane parts for all makes and models all over the world. We keep in stock a large inventory of new hoists.  Providing crane operator safety training, fall protection systems, and solutions for ergonomic handling problems, Engineered Systems, Inc. does it all.  We can offer turn key jobs on any size project.

Engineered Systems, Inc. has offices in South Carolina in Greenville, Columbia and Charleston.  In North Carolina, offices are located in Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro, Conover, and Raleigh.  In Georgia, offices are located in Atlanta, Acworth, and Augusta.  With a fleet of over ninety vehicles, and over eighty factory trained service personnel, we are able to respond to the needs of customers quickly.  Please consider ESI for any of your crane and hoist needs!
