the Emmert file

24 April 2008

Among the hundreds of projects Terry Emmert categorizes as challenging or important, here's a sampling:

• For the Oregon Department of Transportation, removed a railroad bridge that spanned the Bear River in Southern Oregon. The project won the SC&RA's 1999 Rigging Job of the Year.

• Transported three liquor accumulator tanks in sub-zero temperatures. The project won the SC&RA's 1996 Hauling Job of the Year.

•Transported two gold precipitator casings valued at $500,000 each from Tacoma, WA to a gold mine in Nevada. This project won Emmert International the SC&RA Trucking Job of the Year.

• Relocated the historic mansion the Milheim House, the largest and heaviest (600 ton) structure ever moved in the state of Colorado, to Denver.

• Established record for the longest, most valuable load transported the longest distance in 1990 (transcontinental relocation of $60 million experimental steam generator from Pensacola, FL to Los Angeles, CA). The project received the 1991 SC&RA Hauling Job of the Year award.

Emmert says that for most of the large-scale jobs his company completes he has handson involvement. 'I am always there with the television cameras rolling,” he says with a chuckle. 'Hey, there's no business like show business.”
