Barnhart Crane has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Crane Rental & Rigging of Omaha, Neb. CRR, which has a fleet of more than 40 cranes and has 60 employees, will now operate as Barnhart and will fully transition as part of the Memphis, Tenn.-based company’s network of branches.
CRR also has branches in Lincoln and South Sioux City, Neb.; Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Ames, Iowa; and Sioux Falls, S.D. As part of Barnhart’s network, CRR customers will have access to its rigging systems, wind turbine up-tower services, Project Cargo Logistics capabilities and a department of more than 40 engineers.
“Crane Rental & Riggins has a history of doing excellent work,” said Alan Barnhart, CEO of Barnhart Crane. “This acquisition will allow customers to receive a broader range of services that should help lower overall project costs. We think customers throughout the Midwest will be very pleased with the expansion of services they will experience through this acquisition.”
Barnhart has more than 30 branches and provides operated crane rental, rigging services, outage planning, specialized solutions for component replacement, industrial storage and national project cargo logistics.
