Barnhart to Purchase Days Corporation Machinery Moving Operations

ELKHART, IN — Barnhart Crane and Rigging Co. and Days Corporation, of Elkhart, Indiana, have entered into an agreement under which Barnhart will purchase Days Machinery Movers, including all associated personnel and equipment of that business unit.

Days Corporation is a company in the Elkhart area, and it will retain and continue to operate the same core services it has since 1913. Days Corporation’s active divisions include Days Export Packing, Days Distribution & Logistics, and Equalizer Systems.

The machinery moving operation purchased by Barnhart provides rigging, including machine installation and leveling; equipment setting, which includes anchoring, alignment, and grouting; millwright work, including fabrication and ironworking; and plant reorganization and relocation. Equipment includes flat bed, step deck and double-drop trailers, 450-ton gantry system, forklifts of up to 8,000-pound capacity, and Versa-Lift and TriLifter specialty lifts.

The acquisition will further enhance Barnhart’s presence in the Midwest, where Barnhart already operates several branches in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan, and Ohio.

“Days Corporation has a stellar reputation in this region. Its employees and its services are all first class," said Jim Chapman, Barnhart Regional Director. "We are blessed to make the Days Machinery Movers operations a part of our team."
