Barnhart Crane and Rigging and Armstrong Crane and Rigging, of New Brighton, Minnesota, USA, have entered into an agreement under which Barnhart has purchased Armstrong.

The deal includes Armstrong’s operated crane rental service and all associated personnel and equipment. It is Barnhart’s third acquisition this year.

The acquisition strengthens Barnhart’s presence in the upper Midwest, where it already had field offices in Iowa, Nebraska, North and South Dakota and Wisconsin.

“Armstrong is well-respected in the industry and brings an experienced and dedicated group of employees to the Barnhart family,” said Mike Lins, Barnhart branch manager of the new acquisition. “We look forward to working with Armstrong’s personnel and building upon the outstanding service their customer base is accustomed to by backing it up with a national network and a full-time team of more than 60 engineers who can deliver custom solutions for difficult jobs, whether they involve lifting, transporting, setting or a combination of services.”
