PROUDLY SERVING OUR CUSTOMERS SINCE 1975

YorkHoist was started in 1975 by Gerald Kurtz and Charles May who worked on the weekends and in their free time. Since then, the business has been passed down to Kraig May and Mark May, who both have children currently working for YorkHoist.

Here at YorkHoist, we care very deeply about family values. We strive to pass these values onto not only our employees, but also to our customers. We believe that there is nothing more important than creating and maintaining strong, long-lasting, and trusting relationships with our customers.
