Lobbying is an important part of the Association's role, supporting members and the wider crane industry to function safely and efficiently.
The construction sector contributes significantly to New Zealand's GDP and the majority of construction projects rely on cranes being available. The importance of cranes to the construction sector amplifies our voice and allows us to effectively lobby local and central government.

Thinking of becoming a crane operator?
Awesome! We’ve got the info you need right here.
Crane operators love working with heavy machinery, working in teams, and have good hand-eye coordination. If this sounds like a great way to spend your working day, you could have a bright future as a crane operator.
Work outdoors instead of being stuck in the same office all day. As your career grows, you’ll have more freedom and flexibility in your schedule to fit in more time for the things that matter, such as family, hobbies, and interests.
