The crane, in any form whatsoever, is one of the most important human inventions. You no longer need manpower to move goods. Although, this depends on your definition of ‘manpower’. Nowadays, too, it often requires human intervention to operate a crane. However, crane operators are not the same people as the blacksmiths and port labourers of days gone by. The operator’s workplace is limited to several square metres where everything must be done. And it must be accurate. Merford Cabins is here to help, to make the cabin into an optimum working environment for both the port owner and operator.

Merford Cabins has a valued track record in a range of industries. We excel in cabins for offshore, mining, dredging and steel industry. Our most important strength: we listen to all stakeholders, in order to create an operator cabin that’s safe, comfortable and efficient.

Are you looking for a cabin? We offer you a total solution, with a focus on ergonomics for the operator and on the crane’s efficiency. For us, custom-made cabins are the order of the day, but in many cases a standard cabin that we can supply in short order also suffices. Get in touch to learn more.
