Systems West, Inc. has proven to be reliable by passing the ultimate test: time. Systems West is a third-generation family-owned business based in Litchfield, Minnesota. Glen Doering started the company in the 1960s as an agricultural construction company. In the late 70s, Glen’s son Ray Doering took the company from its humble agricultural beginnings to the commercial construction industry. Systems West soon grew into the leading local commercial contractor. Today, Eric and Mike Doering are continuing to lead and grow the company’s capabilities and satisfied customer base throughout the Midwest.
We are dedicated to providing uncompromising service to our clients and professional growth and fulfillment for our employees. We listen to our clients, share their values, and respond to their needs. In short, we take great pride in helping our clients see their dream become a reality.
Systems West has always specialized in commercial construction. We have in-house construction crews with many years of experience. We have our own construction employees, our own specialized construction equipment, and quality construction tools. This has value to you the customer.

Systems West has complete crane and rigging capabilities! Although the majority of our crane operation is on our construction projects, we do crane service and crane rental for our customers throughout Central Minnesota. We have multiple in-house cranes for any lift you may need.
Our project managers and foremen are all accredited operators certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCO) and ANSI Accredited Program Personal.
If you are looking for safety-orientated and experienced operators with your crane rental, you’ve come to the right place.
With so much crane experience, we know what it is like to pay for an expensive crane by the hour. We also know how frustrating it is to have operators who purposely perform setup and other tasks slowly to gain another hour or two. Our crane operators will not do this! We will take the required time to ensure the crane lift is safe and perform the work in an efficient manner to save you money.
Our cranes and operators have been used for the following applications:
- Grain Storage and Handling Facilities
