Incorporated in 1943 and founded by Herbert F. Allison, Lycoming Construction Company occupied this area from 1943-80.
Lycoming Construction helped form the infrastructure of America by building many sections of the Pennsylvania interstate highway system, constructing several dams throughout the mid-Atlantic region in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and assisting with numerous projects for the Pennsylvania Railroad, Pennsylvania Power & Light, State of Pennsylvania Department of Forests and Waters, and municipal, highway and industrial projects within a 500-mile radius of Williamsport.
In 1976, Lycoming Construction Company transitioned to Allison Crane & Rigging under the leadership of Herbert's son, Herbert L.; grandson, Larry Sr.; and great-grandson, Larry Jr.
Today, Allison Crane & Rigging is located in Williamsport with branch offices in Mansfield; State College; Pittsburgh; and College Station, Texas. The company employs an extensive modern fleet of specialty construction equipment to provide crane, rigging, millwright, and steel erection services to its customers in Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Ohio, and Texas. The company also provides extensive services to the oil and natural gas industry.
