Meade Crane Hire

Meade Crane Hire was originally established in 1953 as Irish Tan & Pipeline by its founder and proprietor Paddy Meade. It later became Meade Plant Ltd in 1975 and was responsible for the erection of the Papal Cross in Phoenix Park, Dublin which was a very prestigious and noteworthy project awarded to Meade Crane Hire. At the time the organisation owned the tallest crane available in the country of Ireland and were fortunately able to complete the task to specifications.



In 1995 the family successor Fergus Meade left Ireland for Australia and worked exclusively with Lindores Cranes & Rigging finally returning in 1996 with new insight and knowledge to create Meade Crane Hire which has become one of the largest suppliers of mobile cranes in Ireland. The family owned enterprise maintains its dedication to customer service and core values and prides itself on fostering long term business relationships with its valued customers.
