By D.Ann Shiffler18 January 2021
Portland, OR-based Omega Morgan has officially acquired Omega Morgan Sarens, a crane rental service business from the result of a joint venture with Sarens, a worldwide leader in heavy lifting and engineered transport.
The three-year long joint venture enabled Omega Morgan to provide crane services to customers across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Customers have since benefited from over 86 years of combined experience, leading to turnkey solutions for projects of all sizes, the company said.
The acquisition of Omega Morgan Sarens LLC fully into the Omega Morgan family represents the company’s expanding portfolio, and a major milestone on the way to fulfilling the Omega Morgan vision to be the premier one-stop shop provider of industrial services and solutions in the western United States, according to Omega Morgan.
“Sarens was a wonderful and valued partner over these past three years,” said Dick Ferchak, CEO, Omega Morgan. “It absolutely took our brand to the next level. Bringing Omega Morgan Sarens LLC into the fold is a perfect fit for our company, and allows us to lead the charge in being a premier provider of industrial solutions for all of our customers.”
In line with Omega Morgan’s commitment to provide professional development and a winning culture, all of the Omega Morgan Sarens LLC employees will be retained in the acquisition, according to Ferchak.
“Our employees were essential in helping to build the winning culture that we now have in the crane services division,” said Ferchak. “We’re all really looking forward to the next chapter.”
This announcement is the first in what is expected to be an exciting year for the heavy equipment and industrial services provider, he said. Using a mix of technical expertise, project management and good old-fashioned American know-how, Omega Morgan is the trusted, reliable partner that safeguards customers’ equipment and employees, the company said. Omega Morgan offers specialized transportation, heavy rigging, machinery moving, applied and industrial metrology, crane, millwrighting services, industrial storage and warehousing through offices in Portland, Seattle, Everett, Houston and Calgary. The company is the largest provider of heavy equipment moving and industrial services in the Pacific Northwest, according to the company.
