Family business

Kraanbedrijf Nederhoff was founded in 1949. At the time Cees Nederhoff Sr. started with one crane in Gouda. The business grew steadily and Mr. Nederhoffs four sons joined the company. In 1987 he transferred the company to his sons and they continued to build the business. On May 1st, 2022 the company transferred to the third generation of Nederhoff.

As a family business we are especially proud of the employees who help build and have helped build Kraanbedrijf Nederhoff. We are proud of the long employment contracts, the short lines within our organization and that everyone still knows each other by name. Together we continue to build on Kraanbedrijf Nederhoff!

World's first hybrid mobile crane: the Spierings SK487-AT3 City Boy


As a family business, not only do we feel it is important to be able to pass on the business to the next generation, but we also want to be able to pass on our earth to the next generation.

Therefore, when investing in new equipment, sustainability is an important criterion. This means we invest in the highest emission standards, hybrid technologies, and comfort for our staff. Therefore, we were particularly proud to have the premiere in 2019 with the world’s very first hybrid mobile tower crane: the Spierings City Boy.

With heavy equipment we cannot (yet) avoid using conventional fuels, but where possible we work with the most sustainable options. For example, all our machines use at least 20% HVO fuel and we limit unnecessary kilometers by participating in Kraanverhuur Nederland. Whenever possible, we also build in more sustainable engines, extending the life of our equipment.

Furthermore, we also understand that every little bit helps; that is why we have installed solar panels on our roofs, limit the use of disposables, point out sustainable behavior to each other, invest in sustainable employability of our staff, and are always on the lookout for further sustainability.
