Tennessee, USA-based lifting, heavy rigging, and heavy hauling specialist Barnhart Crane and Rigging has announced it is to acquire Viant Crane.

Viant provides crane, rigging, logistics and transport services to the Northland and Midwestern United States where it works in the commercial, energy, petrochemical and pipeline business sectors, among others.

As with other Barnhart acquired companies, Viant will keep its name. “The Viant team has built a strong brand that is well-respected in the marketplace. We would like to build on their accomplishments,” said David Webster, Barnhart senior vice president of operations.

Barnhart will purchase Viant’s rental fleet of industrial and carry deck cranes, with capacities up to 22 tonnes, its rough terrain hydraulic cranes, with capacities up to 150 tonnes, and its lattice boom crawler cranes, with capacities up to 330 tonnes, and it’s fleet of all-terrain and truck cranes with capacities from 50 to 350 tonnes.

Barnhart says that the acquisition will further enhance its presence in the Midwest, where it already operates branches in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan and South Dakota.

“Viant prides themselves on providing clean, professional, job-ready equipment manned by employees who are dedicated to safety, reliability and performance,” added Webster. “The company is an excellent fit for Barnhart. Viant’s customers will continue to receive the same quality of service as they have in the past with the added benefit of access to Barnhart’s national network of locations, speciality tools, and a dedicated engineering department.”
