Years of experience
Machine Ranges

We design and build a complete range of electric, self-propelled, battery-operated cranes and forklifts with capacities from 0.9 to 70 tonnes. And we don't stop there.

It was 2007, a few months out from the most catastrophic financial crash in the history of the global economy, when Maurizio Manzini decided to leverage his 30 years of expertise in the pick&carry industry and establish JMG CRANES. And he did so fuelled by the same determination that continues to define the company today, in a perfect mix of foresightedness, intuition and willpower.

JMG immediately stood out for its most distinguishing feature, that is, the essential integration of technological innovation characterising all of its machines. It was a bold decision that would require considerable investments in human resources, time and capital for its implementation, but which has never lagged in demonstrating its worth, driving the continuous growth of JMG CRANES, year after year.

Everything at JMG moves quickly – it always has. In 2010, the patent arrived for the proportional extension boom, thanks to which JMG CRANES pick&carry models can handle loads with millimetre precision. In 2013, the Sarmato facility was opened. In 2016, Maurizio Manzini took over LIGE, a company with a 70-year-long history in the pick&carry sector. Add to these milestones the continuous evolution of the product portfolio, with new models introduced every year. A combination of factors that led to constant and solid growth, becoming the basis for the company’s expansion.

An expansion that culminated in 2019 in the opening of a new facility in Cremona, affectionately named the pick&carry Hub. The space fully embodied the JMG CRANES philosophy, providing clients with the opportunity to enjoy direct contact with the JMG team. 

The area covered 16,000 m2 and became home to the R&D, Design, After-Sales, Administrative and Sales departments. At the centre of the Hub, Europe’s only Pick&Carry museum was erected, because “there cannot be a future without history, and innovation without tradition”, as Maurizio Manzini explained in his inaugural speech. spiega Maurizio Manzini all’inaugurazione.

But, as we said, at JMG CRANES, it’s not just machines that evolve at an incredible pace. Having survived the pandemic unscathed, the company continued to reap the benefits of its market strategy amid increasing demand for machines and innovation. Before long, even the Cremona facility had become too “cramped” for the needs of JMG CRANES, which was now also forced to move production from the historical Sarmato site to another location.

Thus, the inception of the project for a new headquarters, pre-dubbed by Maurizio Manzini as the “Citadel of cranes”. The new location aimed to encapsulate the JMG CRANES philosophy, not only through larger spaces that were better equipped to support the company’s growth, but also by envisioning them in terms of sustainability and employee well-being.

Today, the new JMG headquarters is operational and the second phase of expansion is about to be completed. The new site is expected to officially open in May 2024.A new headquarters where JMG CRANES has no intention of slowing down. In 2023, in fact, the company introduced a new initiative to complement its participation in major trade fairs: the JMG TOUR.A European tour that brings the JMG CRANES team directly to the doorsteps of its partners and clients, giving everyone the chance to feel part of the team!
