  • A tribute to our founder

    In 2016 we said goodbye and thank you to our Founder, Edward Imperatore. Ed began The Imperatore Corporation in 1946 at the age of 24 with commitment, hard work and a single piece of equipment. We thank Ed for his dedication, his business, and his employees over the last seven decades. His vision and work positioned Imperatore as one of the most distinguished crane and rigging organizations in New England. Edward leaves behind a lasting impression on his family, the professional community, and the State of Rhode Island. He will be deeply missed by all.
