Our History

In 1990, LGH started out what would become a long journey with only one thing in mind: To become the best. Since 1990, LGH North America has had tremendous success by supporting our customers with local representatives and growing to over 20 rental equipment facilities.

With locations throughout North America, LGH can provide hoisting, pulling, jacking and rigging equipment to meet virtually every conceivable lifting or moving need. LGH does this by holding the most comprehensive inventory of equipment whether for simple everyday tasks or for special projects where expertise has to be matched with availability of the right equipment in sufficient quantity. All of this equipment has been carefully selected by LGH for its durability and longevity. All rental stock is maintained in excellent condition to be ready for immediate and, above all, safe use.
