What Our Purpose Statement Means to Our Employees

Our Purpose: Together we create intelligent motion solutions that move the world forward and improve lives.

Senior Project Systems Engineer - Menomonee Falls, WI
One thing that always humbles me about my job is the impact that our company truly has on the world. It is not an exaggeration to say that every single corner of every industry, at some point, needs heavy things lifted safely and effectively. From lifting the raw steel that makes just about every structure you see to lifting the turbines in the hydroelectric dams that supply power to your home, a crane is needed every step of the way. This is how and why we move the world forward and improve lives.
Regional Director, Latin America - Mexico
For me, it’s the fact that we improve the world and contribute to improving the lives of our customers and users of our products with the work we carry out. This allows us to achieve a much nobler and greater goal than just producing and marketing products; it implies a great responsibility and gives meaning to our existence as a company and its partners by contributing to the well-being of individuals, families, and societies around the world.
Business Development Manager - Getzville, NY
Our purpose statement is the reason we exist and that is ultimately to serve our customers – channel partners and end users. Columbus McKinnon is collectively a strong family of brands that complement each other to create high-value solutions. When the brands are partnered, we can offer an intelligent motion solution unlike anyone else in the market. At Columbus McKinnon, we move the world forward by working hard to understand who our customers are, who their customers are, and how we can service them to levels that are industry leading, which in turn allows them to create products and deliver services that improve lives.
Test Engineer - Ballantyne, NC
Our purpose statement invokes a sense of excitement in me. As an engineer, creating "intelligence" in our products is a challenge that I am thrilled to take on. I am proud to be part of a company that is creating products to help move the world forward while also being forward-thinking in our approach.
Senior Specialist, Internal Communications - Ballantyne, NC
It means that Columbus McKinnon is invested in looking ahead. As a new employee, it also shows me that I've joined an organization that puts people first by leading with intelligent products that support and enhance the lives of the people these products touch – employees, their families, their neighbors, and their communities. It's important to me that my work contributes to some good out in the world, and that’s what we’re doing here at CMCO!
HR Director, EMEA & APAC - Wuppertal, Germany
The Purpose Statement means that all of us at CMCO, as a team at a great global company, make a very important contribution to providing our customers worldwide with intelligent motion solutions for lifting, pulling, and transporting that make working life safer.
Customer Service Representative - Menomonee Falls, WI
Committing to move forward to improve lives with intelligent motion solutions is incredibly important. I am proud to be a part of CMCO because in a world where things seem to be going a little crazy at times, it's refreshing to surround myself and work with others that have the same purpose. That is to be concerned, passionate, dedicated, and respectful to one another and to put the customer first.
VP of Sales - Blue Anchor, NJ
At CMCO, this is exactly what we do. By helping our customers increase the productivity on their lines between 20-30%, our customers can make more profit with the same amount or less labor. This will, in turn, eliminate mundane jobs and create jobs that are more satisfying for the workers. This will also help our customers supply goods to their customers at a much faster rate, like getting the COVID-19 vaccines to the world!
At Columbus McKinnon, you can build your career as part of a global organization, working together to create intelligent motion solutions that move the world forward and improve lives. Contribute your knowledge, personality, commitment and experience to enrich our motivated team.
