History

Engineered Systems, Inc. History

Engineered Systems, Inc. was founded in 1969 by Mr. Larry LaPlue, PE. He had been involved in the crane and hoist field for several years. 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-eight years, Engineered Systems, Inc. has become the premier hoist and crane service company in the Carolinas. 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 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. 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 Greenville, SC, Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC, east Atlanta, GA, west Atlanta, GA, Augusta, GA, Greensboro, NC, Charlotte, NC, and Conover, NC. With a fleet of 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!
