The Industrial Leaders Since 1898

Unparalleled service and excellence.

Family owned and operated since 1898, Fenton has been committed to providing our customers with unparalleled excellence in rigging and contracting services. Our promise is simple: Complete every project on time and on budget, with unparalleled expertise and innovation. Our consistency and excellence in the field has allowed us to keep many of our customers for over 100 years.

Our dedication to such excellent service and quality really came to life though William E. Besl.

William started at Fenton as a crane operator, and over 10 years of hard work and dedication, he earned enough money and rose up in the company enough to buy the company and become the chairman of the board. Bill was instrumental in moving the enormous mosaic to Union Terminal and in moving the famous fountain in Fountain Square in the late 60’s.

Bill loved the Cincinnati area, and he made it his mission to preserve the history and enhance the lives of everyone living in and around Cincinnati. In 1986, Bill passed away from a lengthy battle with cancer, but his fighting spirit and determination to provide the tri-state with unparalleled service live on today through every member of the Fenton team.
