FAMILY OWNED, FAMILY OPERATED
American International Crane Bureau, AICB, was founded in 2008 by nationally renowned lifting expert out of Pearland, Don Jordan. Don has 40 years of experience in the crane and rigging industry and is truly passionate about his work. Don has been involved in the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, NCCCO, for 13 years. This involvement is what sparked the interest for AICB’s creation in 2008. To support AICB’s growth and development, Don’s daughter, Amanda joined the team in late 2011. She now serves as the VP of Operations and has taken an active role as both a trainer and administer. According to Don, “Do you want to talk to the man in charge, or the woman who knows what’s going on?” Both Don and Amanda hold numerous certifications and accreditations within the Crane & Rigging Industry.
