C&S has served industrial, commercial and public sector customers throughout upstate New York since 2008 with a fleet of 15-ton to 200-ton cranes and specialized rigging equipment.

"This is an extremely positive move for both companies," said Alan Barnhart, CEO of Barnhart.

With this new branch we will be able to better serve our customers in this area, particularly those in renewable and nuclear energy."

Established in 1969, Barnhart has one of the nation's largest equipment inventories including Goldhofer transport systems, cranes to 1,760 tons, sliding systems, strand jacks and a Modular Lift Tower system. With 25 branches, Barnhart Crane & Rigging is a leading national supplier of heavy lifting and transportation solutions.
