Barnhart acquires Sicklesteel Cranes

June 30 - Barnhart Crane & Rigging has reached a final agreement to purchase Mount Vernon, Washington based lifting service provider Sicklesteel Cranes.

The transaction will include Pacific Tower Crane - an affiliated company of Sicklesteel.

Sicklesteel, which has a fleet of 56 cranes, will continue to operate under its own name, but the company will have full access to Barnhart's national network of equipment, engineers, and branches. 

Customers will continue to receive the same high quality service, said Barnhart ceo Alan Barnhart. "This acquisition will allow customers to receive a broader range of services that should help them lower overall project costs."
