About Us

Safety is our priority, but family is Chellino Crane’s foundation. Founded in 1947 by Sam Chellino with one crane and unparalleled work ethic, Sam established relationships with local refineries in the Joliet, IL area and soon after started Chellino Crane. His honesty, integrity, and hands-on service laid the groundwork for the company to become what it is today – one of the largest crane companies in the Midwest specialized in providing full service to niche markets such as refineries, power and chemical plants.

Now in the hands of the third generation, Chellino Crane is stronger than ever. They have grown their fleet to over two hundred pieces of equipment and are strategically and successfully expanding in other markets, all with a fierce focus on providing the highest level of safety to their clients. Beyond crane rentals, Chellino Crane is a full-service provider of equipment, personnel, maintenance services and turn-key turnaround services on job sites. With over six decades of specialized experience, Chellino’s service sets them apart.

Sam Chellino built a strong foundation for Chellino Crane. As the business has grown, so has the Chellino family. There is a Chellino family member working in every area of the company and there is always a Chellino on the job site. Chellino’s clients are an extension of the family – partners through every step of the process. Safety is our first lift, and family will always be our foundation.

Chellino Crane is a proud member of The Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association (SC&RA). They are a recipient of the SC&RA 2013 Safety Award.

history

History

Sam Chellino returned from World War II and found work as a mechanic for a contractor. The contractor eventually fell upon hard times and had to give Sam a crane as payment for his labor. Unbeknownst to Sam at the time, this was to his benefit, as this crane was the humble beginning of Chellino Crane. He rented other equipment, but ultimately focused on cranes as he started developing relationships with the refineries in the Joliet, IL area.

Sam steadily grew his business with a focus on providing expert service to the many local refineries. In 1949, Chellino Crane was the only crane company in the Joliet area. Sam’s success was not only due to his industry expertise, but was founded in his incomparable work ethic, honesty and transparency, and pride in his work. His clients were his partners – truly an extension of his family – the same way Chellino Crane operates today.

In 1968, Sam’s son Frank joined the company as Vice President, followed by his other son Greg in 1973 as an Operator. A thriving family business, Greg began to strategically grow the company in different markets in 1985. That growth has continued successfully over the past three decades making Chellino Crane one of the largest crane rental and service companies in the Midwest and one of the few that specializes in niche markets. In recent years Greg’s sons Wes and Blake joined Chellino Crane as Operations Manager and Dispatcher, respectively, to continue the growth of the company and, more importantly, to maintain the family foundation upon which the company was established.
