A.C. Jones Crane

"Providing 40Ton-350Ton Crane Fleet Services"

About Us

Art and Louis Jones started Jones Brothers Trucking in 1946. Their business consisted of trucking, fertilizer lime spreading, and dragline service. They started with a single axle dump truck, a lime spreading truck and a dragline mounted on army 6 x 6's. In the '50s the company added tandem dump trucks and began hauling Critic Feed in the Midwest. In 1964 it became Jones Trucking, with Art Jones owner. During the '60s the first conventional lift crane was purchased. Dozers and backhoes were added to do land conservation work. In 1971 the first hydraulic crane was purchased. In 1979 the business was incorporated into A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. A.C. Jones, Jr. became manager in 1980. The trucking of coal became a major focus of the company in the mid-'80s. In the early 90's hydraulic cranes and rough terrain, cranes were added. The business today is quite different than it was in the early days. Now we provide crane services along with sales/delivery of rock and sand, through A.C. Jones Trucking and 21st Century Leasing of Illinois. In addition, we also provide, lease man lifts scissor lifts, telescopic forklifts along with local sales and delivery of rock and sand. Over the years A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. has provided hauling of material and quality crane service for jobs from Quincy to Champaign and Peoria to Alton. Providing safe and timely crane service for the construction and manufacturing industries has been a priority. Today the company is heading into the 3rd generation of family management. While A.C. Jones, Jr. continues to watch over the company he devoted all of his time and hard work too; son Jace (Arthur Charles Jones III) and daughter Mickenzie Schaver are now ready to take over the family business. Going from the early '90s to now 2016, A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. is a company that continues to provide excellent crane services to customers all around central Illinois. We have grown tremendously over the years not only in our fleet of cranes ranging from 40 Ton truck cranes to 350 Ton truck cranes but also in our knowledge of operating these large machines and building a great customer base. We pride ourselves on being a small family-owned company that wants to create and maintain a high standard of customer service. For your next project give us a call and put our quality equipment and years of experience to work for you. Thank you for your interest in our company. A. C. Jones, Jr., Pres.
