Our story

2007

Beginning of activity as a representative office of Bulgarian manufacturers of wire rope hoists in Ukraine. The delivery of hoists and spare parts was carried out only on order, without stock items. The beginning of building long-term relationships with Bulgarian partners.

2009

Registration of the company Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant LLC. Obtaining the status of the exclusive official representative of the Podem AD plant (Bulgaria) in Ukraine.

Until 2009, the Ukrainian consumer knew only the hoists of "warehouse storage, used". Despite this, in a short time it was possible to significantly increase the supply of new Bulgarian hoists and crane components to end customers. The outdated T-series hoists were replaced by new MT-series hoists. The first joint projects with the Podem AD plant for the supply of cranes made in Bulgaria were implemented. The Certificates of Conformity and Permits for Application were obtained for all supplied products. A qualified subdivision has been formed and trained, a permit has been obtained to perform works on installation and maintenance of crane equipment.

2010

The first deliveries of overhead double-girder cranes for technological purposes: overhead casting cranes with lifting capacity 5.0 t and 10.0 t controlled from the cab. Increased supply of single girder overhead cranes. The design department of the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant, together with Bulgarian colleagues, developed and modified the design of overhead cranes based on Podem AD drive mechanisms.

2011

Emphasis on expanding warehouse positions for crane components. Constant availability of up to 50 types of rope hoists and 20 types of end beams in a warehouse in Kyiv. Modification of the structure of overhead cranes using end beams of reduced height. Production development was limited to rented space.

Large technological cranes were manufactured and delivered to customers:

  • Foundry bridge crane with lifting capacity 20.0/5.0t, operating mode A7 (heavy). Equipped with frequency drives on all mechanisms, closed-type trolley current lead with a capacity of 200A manufactured by FELS (France). The crane was successfully installed and put into operation to service the filling line of the foundry
  • Bridge cranes KM-16.0/3.2 with two lifting mechanisms: the main lifting capacity 16.0 t and the auxiliary lifting 3.2 t. The cranes are equipped with Schneider Electric frequency drives
  • Gantry crane KK-10.0-52.0-32.0-10.0-A5, lifting capacity 10.0 t, total length of the bridge 52.0 m, span 32.0 m and console 2x10.0 m, lifting height H=10,0 m with log grab

2012

In addition to constant orders for single-girder overhead and overhead cranes, Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant is actively developing the direction of technological cranes. Technical specifications have been obtained and the production of hinged mechanisms has been mastered: rope grabs with a volume of 0.5 to 4.0 m³, as well as lifting traverses with a lifting capacity of up to 50.0 tons.

The production of explosion-proof cranes is mastered. Explosion protection category 1Ex(d)IIBT5-1Ex(d) IICT4. The cranes and hoists of explosion-proof Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant were tested in a specialized laboratory of the "State Testing Certification Center for Explosion Proof and Mining Equipment". Complex supplies of more than 10 explosion-proof cranes to Ukrainian enterprises were carried out.

Large technological cranes were manufactured and delivered to customers:

  • Double-girder gantry crane KK-20.0/5.0-20.0-10.0-A5 with two lifting mechanisms: main lifting capacity 20.0 t and auxiliary lifting capacity 5.0 t. The crane was manufactured, delivered, mounted and successfully put into operation at the NPP Energoatom
  • Overhead casting crane KM-16.0/3.2-23.0-10.0/10.0-A7 with two lifting mechanisms: the main lifting mechanism 16.0 t and the auxiliary lifting 3.2 t. The crane has been successfully installed and put into operation to service the casting line of the foundry

2013

Technical specifications were developed and the production of jib cranes with lifting capacity 0.5 t-5.0 t was mastered.

The list of services offered includes the production and installation of crane runways and crane trestles. Projects for the supply of cranes and crane runways were completed with their subsequent installation and commissioning.

FC «KZPTO» was founded, which is a permanent participant and winner of the open Kyiv futsal leagues.

Large technological cranes were manufactured and delivered to customers:

  • Gantry crane KKS-16.0-32.0 + 10.0-9.1-A5 with lifting capacity 16.0 t, total length of the bridge 42.0 m, span 32.0 m, console 10.0 m, lifting height H=9,1 m
  • Gantry crane KK-5.0-20.0 + 4.0-7.1-A5 with a lifting capacity of 5.0 t, total bridge length 24.0 m, span 20.0 m, console 4.0 m, lifting height 7.1 m
  • A large project for the supply of 13 overhead cranes with a lifting capacity of 5.0 t and 10.0 t for equipping the production facilities of a large machine-building enterprise was completed. The project was memorable because victory in the tender was given to the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant in the course of a multi-stage selection and comparison of production capabilities, quality and skill level of specialists from more than 20 Ukrainian and foreign manufacturers of crane equipment.

2014

Together with Podem AD, representatives of the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant took part in the international exhibition CeMAT in Hannover, Germany. Exchange of experience with leading crane manufacturers: Demag Cranes & Components (Germany), OMIS (Italy), Podem AD (Bulgaria) gave impetus to a new stage in the development of Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant with an emphasis on improving the quality of products and reducing production times.

Design and preparatory work has begun for the construction of new production facilities at the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant.

A large complex project for the export supply and installation of 15 cranes in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan was completed.

An internal fund "Help Children" was founded, a number of social projects aimed at helping children were financed with its own funds.

2015

Despite the general tendencies of the market decline, a new workshop for the production and assembly of metal structures of cranes with a span of up to 34.0 m was built without attracting credit funds. The experience of the world's leading crane manufacturers was applied in the design of the production processes of the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant. The stages of the workpiece, intermediate assembly, welding and control assembly are lined up in a chain, minimizing the time for internal movement.

Technical specifications have been developed, assembly has been mastered, tests have been carried out and a permit has been obtained for the use of hand hoists and hand cranes of general industrial and explosion-proof design produced by the Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant.

Large technological cranes were manufactured and delivered to customers:

  • Overhead crane KM-50.0/12.5 with two lifting mechanisms: the main lifting capacity 50.0 t and the auxiliary lifting 12.5 t. The crane is equipped with Sew-Eurodrive geared motors, Emotron frequency drives, the cab is equipped with joysticks and safety devices from European manufacturers.
  • Special overhead crane KM-8.0 + 8.0-28.0 with a lifting capacity of 8.0 + 8.0 t, a span of 28.0 m, is equipped with a lifting beam. The base of the bogie along the axles of the wheels was 5.0 m, the total base of the end beams was 9.0 m.
