OMG-MGM CRANES, part of the Bedeschi Group, is an Italian company specialized in the production and revamping of containers handling equipment since more than 100 years.  The company, specilized in the energy and bridges, steel structures, lock gates, hydraulic, naval and hosting equipment production, was born in 1890.
In the 1965 it starts to produce container handling equipment and water screen systems In 1970 IHI Corporation (Japan) provided OMG with the authorized licence for the conception and manufacturing  of the first Ship to Shore in Felixstowe Port. The Company’s product range includes ship to shore (STS) container cranes, rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes, rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes and other special material lifting equipment.

The Company manages each step of the project execution from feasibility study to manufacturing, assembly, installation, start up and after sales assistance with many references also in revamping of existing machinery. OMG MGM builds and tests all the main key mechanical components of its cranes in its Italian workshop offering the latest technologies and facilities for the perfect machining and testing of these special items.


In 1992, the UN introduced the concept of ‘sustainability’, defined as ‘Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations ...

Trieste Marine Terminal – Italy

OMG-MGM CRANES can provide height and outreach increases, span change, replacement of old trolleys, renewal of electrical equipment, motors replacement, increasing cranes performances, by rebirthing the cranes for upgraded residual crane life and cost saving; your cranes or any kind of travelling cranes can be refurbished with upgraded capacity, better service, speeds, geometrical updating, duty classification and durability, saving on operation costs and maintenance of the apparatus, whilst improving productivity, safety and reliability. Renewal of the entire electrical equipment, including cabling, is provided by mechanical and electrical engineering team. OMG-MGM CRANES, has developed and uses a dedicated “lifting cage” to raise the crane. The equipment, designed and manufactured by OMG-MGM team, has been already used successfully many times on existing machines. The system is made by a dummy portal on steel frame, located over the lower sill beams and strand jacks for raising finalization: this equipment has the  eculiarity to limit the civil works on the site area and doesn’t require the crane transfer, since the activities could be carried out directly on quay site during few weeks and without affecting the terminal operations.
