Barnhart has reached a definitive agreement to purchase Sicklesteel Cranes, Inc. of Mount Vernon, Washington. The company, with 53 employees and a fleet of over 56 cranes, will continue to operate as Sicklesteel but will have full access to Barnhart’s national network of equipment, engineers, and branches.

Customers will continue to receive the same quality crane service and tower crane service they have come to expect. However, through Barnhart’s coast-to-coast network, customers will have access to the nation’s most innovative rigging systems, wind turbine up-tower services, project cargo logistics capabilities, and a department of over 40 engineers.

“Sicklesteel Cranes, Inc. reputation and history is one of excellence,” said Alan Barnhart, CEO of Barnhart. “We think customers throughout the Pacific Northwest will be very pleased with the expansion of services they will experience through this acquisition.”
