Fascan International is one of the foremost suppliers of Fassi hydraulic articulating cranes.

Through its association with the Fassi Group, an innovative world class leader in the design and manufacturing of articulated hydraulic cranes, Fascan offers the complete Fassi line of articulated cranes through a network of more than 150 service centers and certified dealers.

Fascan’s story begins in 1982 when Bernie J. Faloney Sr., owner of Contractor’s Machinery and Equipment Ltd. in Ontario, Canada, took on the Fassi line of articulated hydraulic cranes as part of its offerings.

Contractor’s Machinery and Equipment’s success with the Fassi product line across Canada led to the expansion of Faloney Sr.’s operations into the United States.

Incorporated on May of 1992, Fascan International was founded to distribute Fassi cranes through the United States and the Caribbean. Bernie J. Faloney, Jr. was appointed President & CEO of the new company, and its headquarters were established in a 5,000 square-foot distribution facility in Baltimore, Maryland.

Fascan’s success in the U.S. market resulted in several expansions throughout its history. Fascan currently operates from a 55,000 square foot facility in Baltimore, and has put nearly 7,000 Fassi cranes into service in the U.S.


The Fassi articulated crane was developed in 1965 by Franco Fassi, who designed a crane to increase efficiency in his scrap recovery business. As others observed the versatility of Fassi’s new crane, demand for the product grew.

Manufactured in Albino, Italy by Fassi Gru Idrauliche S.p.A., Fassi continues to be an innovator in articulated crane design and has earned its position as one of the top three manufacturers of articulated cranes in the world.

Fassi has a product line that encompasses close to 75 basic crane models which translates to over 30,000 possible configurations. The Fassi product line of articulated cranes includes a range of models that can be mounted on trucks or pedestals. Industry-specific applications include marine, construction, utilities, wallboard, military, oil and gas, salvage, precast concrete and many others.

Fassi remains a family owned company, and has an annual production level of approximately 12,500 cranes per year.
