About Wellman Booth

Specialists since 1833 in the design and manufacture of bespoke mechanical handling equipment.

For severe process crane technology in hostile and exacting environments, Wellman Booth is a leader in overhead travelling cranes. Our high integrity cranes are used in power stations, ports, fuel reprocessing plants, aluminium plants, steelworks and nuclear facilities.


Wellman Booth is one of the foremost suppliers of continuous cycle heavy-duty severe process and general purpose cranes for steelworks and associated steel product handling duties. These cranes must have the robustness and reliability to lift huge tonnages of molten steel and transfer them through a multitude of processes safely and efficiently, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Wellman Booth is a respected supplier to the nuclear industry having been actively involved in the design, development, manufacture and supply of associated special purpose high integrity cranes over a period of 30 years.

Handling highly radioactive nuclear fuels and waste is an area in which Wellman Booth is a leading authority, designing cranes to standards of safety and reliability that are inconceivable in most industries.
