Barnhart plans Viant acquisition

Barnhart Crane and Rigging has entered into an agreement to acquire Viant Crane.

Viant provides crane rental and specialty rigging services, as well as logistics planning and transport in Northern and Midwestern USA. With offices in Wisconsin and North Dakota, the company supports the commercial, energy, petrochemical and pipeline business sectors, among others.

The acquisition will boost Barnhart’s fleet of industrial and carry deck cranes, rough-terrain hydraulic cranes, lattice boom crawler cranes as well as all-terrain/truck cranes ranging in capacity from 50 tons (45.4 tonnes) to 350 tons (317.5 tonnes).

“As with other Barnhart acquired companies, Viant will keep its name. The Viant team has built a strong brand that is well-respected in the marketplace,” commented David Webster, Barnhart senior vice president of operations.
