Barnhart Crane and Rigging has struck a deal to take on equipment and personnel from Indiana-based Days Machinery Movers.

The Days Corporation subsidiary provides rigging services, including machine installation and levelling; equipment setting such as anchoring, alignment and grouting; millwright work, including fabrication and ironworking; and plant reorganisation and relocation. Equipment includes flatbed, stepdeck and double-drop trailers; a 450-ton (408-tonne) lifting capacity gantry system; forklifts; and Versa-Lift and TriLifter units.

The acquisition will further enhance Barnhart’s presence in the Midwest, where it already operates several branches in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan and Ohio.
