Our core values define everything we do in our business.


Business owners Hilton and Tracey Davies moved to the Whitsunday Region in 1989. Hilton has been involved with the building and construction industry for more than 40 years, gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the crane industry. In this time Hilton worked with some of the largest construction companies in Australia.

In 1998 Hilton purchased his own cranes which were initially contracted to Brambles, servicing the Mackay Region. In 2001, Hilton expanded operations to offer crane hire services in the Whitsundays.

Since then, the Davies have seen steady growth of the Whitsunday region and have accommodated their lifting services to suit the requirements of local demand.

This growth led to the expansion of Davies equipment fleet in 2007, when Hilton purchased the Whitsundays first established crane hire business from Airlie Property Developments (APD), previously known as Hughes Cranes & Earthmoving.

Local History: Hughes Cranes & Earthmoving was established in 1976 and was purchased by APD in 2003. APD continued to expand introducing a new fleet of lifting equipment and continued to employ Hughes existing team of experienced personnel.

Operating under the new name of Davies Cranes Whitsunday, the business continued to operate and employ APD existing personnel.

The Davies take pride in continuing the efforts of Tom Hughes (Hughes Cranes) and Dennis Gillen (APD), who were instrumental in improving and expanding the local crane hire industry.

Davies Cranes Whitsunday is solely owned by the Davies family. Hilton and his son Mason operate the crane hire and supervise site operations, while Tracey handles the administration side for the business.

Our team here at Davies Cranes Whitsunday are dedicated to providing the service locals have come to know and trust over the last 4 decades. To enquire about a lifting solution for your project, give us a call today.
