Hoist Magazine, a trade journal, reported that Morris sold crane kits to the Iran-based Arian Company, which generated $900,000 in sales in the year 2000 alone ("Morris Firms Relationships in Middle Eastern Region").

In addition to their wide application in the petrochemical, oil, natural gas, and nuclear industries, Iran has used overhead cranes to publicly execute political prisoners ("Khomeini fatwa led to killing of 30,000 in Iran").
