Omega Morgan signs JV with Sarens

November 14 - Omega Morgan and and Sarens have formalised their existing partnership by signing a joint venture agreement to provide crane services in the Pacific Northwest.

Further to HLPFI's report on November 2 the joint venture leverages the combined 86 years of experience and resources of both Omega Morgan and Sarens.

It will be based in Portland, Oregon, operating as Omega Morgan Crane Services and will place dedicated crane assets in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington.

It will be able to tap into Sarens' inventory of more than 1,500 crane assets. Greg Tansey, president and ceo of Omega Morgan said: "These assets are standing by and are ready to deploy at a moment's notice, from smaller 54.45-tonne cranes to Sarens' SGC-120, which features a 3,150-tonne lifting capacity.

"For over two decades, we have provided heavy lift and rigging services within the Pacific Northwest. Adding cranes allows us to better meet our local customer's needs by delivering full-spectrum, turnkey services."

Mike Hussey, regional director for Sarens North America added: "This new venture allows Sarens to grow our presence in the Pacific Northwest market with a partner firmly rooted in the region. Omega Morgan is trusted and respected in the industry and can bring our full fleet of assets to some of the most demanding and complex projects in the area."

The latest joint venture follows last year's creation of Sinotrans Sarens Logistics Co, a jv between The Sarens Group and Sinotrans Heavy-lift Logistics created to provide heavy lift and engineered transportation services in China.
