Randy started his career at MD Moody back in 1981.  For several years his focus was on sales, special projects, and field technical work on LMI and two block systems.  He designed the Function Disconnect valve banks for American Cranes with air machines back in 1989.  After several more years with Moody,  he decided to take his innovative knowledge and experience and opened his own company, Crane Warning Systems Inc., in February 1997. During his entire career, his focus was on research and applications in the retrofit market, striving to find and partner with various manufacturers to locate the best built products, staying involved with the engineering changes of various indicator parts and systems working direct with the factory.

Pat’s office career began 1982 working for The Department of Revenue in Montana focusing on noncompliant Individual Tax Payers as well as State Withholding Employers through research and investigation in preparing reports for the field officers.  Her specialty projects were to reorganize the Withholding Tax Bureaus records department and create a research manual providing procedures and sources in non-compliant research processes.  Pat used these framework skills to successfully restructure 4 small businesses, implementing intense investigations in determining company fall-out and strategically reformatting full operational procedures and creating a company layout to maintain the company transformations. Pat joined the Crane Warning family in 2006 and used her skillset to rebuild and perfect our company structure, push our focus on customer needs and reshape our vision of the future.

Gene was originally hired directly by Gerald Greer with The Greer Company back in the late 1980’s as a field technician performing Greer System installations and calibration of the older LAR and LOHD systems.  After working for a family business he returned to Greer from 1996 to 2004 providing technical support, field work and installation of the Microguard 400 series systems as well as receiving factory training by Greer and Link-Belt.  Gene joined the Crane Warning family in 2004.  Since Gene’s inception with Crane Warning Systems, he has been constantly driven to learn and absorb the technical information with the retrofit product line direct with the manufacturing facilities along with hands on training and years of field service and installation of most of the Hirschmann/PAT/Kruger systems as well as Greer, Link-Belt, and Terex product line.  One of the many things that shines brightly with Gene is his ability to connect with the customer over the phone while providing technical assistance.  His ability to guide the customer with what they need and how to apply it, explaining the steps to take in a user friendly manner allows for a successful end result.  In everything Gene does, he does it thoroughly and always pays attention to detail.
