February 10 - Edmonton headquartered NCSG Crane & Heavy Haul Services has acquired the Calgary based Mullen Rigging and Industrial Services Inc.

Founders of Mullen Rigging - Jamie and Jackie Mullen - alongside the other owners of the company, will remain at the business in their current roles.

"Mullen Rigging broadens NCSG's rigging expertise and provides additional equipment including hydraulic gantries, jacking systems, and gives us additional jack and slide crews in Calgary and Leduc," said Ted Redmond, president of NCSG.

"We plan to add Mullen Rigging's gantries and other equipment/services to the services offered by NCSG's existing branches, and offer NCSG's crane and heavy haul services to the important Calgary market from Mullen Rigging's Calgary location," Redmond added.

Jamie Mullen also commented on the acquisition: "With access to NCSG's team of over 630 employees and NCSG's fleet of over 285 cranes, 215 lines of hydraulic platform trailers, 280 conventional trailers and 78 tractors, Mullen Rigging will be able to take on larger projects and meet even more of our customers' rigging, moving, lifting and heavy haul needs."
