Barnhart Acquires White Crane, Continues Rapid Expansion

COLUMBIA, SC — Barnhart Crane and Rigging Co. has purchased White Crane Co., Inc., of West Columbia, South Carolina. The acquisition is Barnhart’s second branch in South Carolina and marks the company’s fourth acquisition in the past eight months.

White Crane was founded in 1977 by Eddie Flynt, and the family-owned company has crane rental service, experienced operators, certified riggers, and transport services.

“We are pleased to welcome White Crane to the expanding Barnhart family,” said David Wills, Barnhart Regional Director of the Mid-Atlantic. “The company’s customer service is second to none, and their experience in heavy industrial lifts; shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages; power generation plants; and the hauling, lifting, and setting of out-of-gauge components makes them a perfect fit for us.”

“Joining forces with Barnhart gives our customers more options by tapping into a nationwide network of branches backed by a dedicated engineering team, customized solutions, expertise in logistics, and a fleet of transporters, trucks, and barges,” said Jason Flynt, former Owner of White Crane.

With a current network of nearly 60 facilities, Barnhart provides operated crane rental, rigging services, outage planning, specialized solutions for component replacement, industrial storage, and national project cargo logistics. The company also has one of the largest engineering teams in the industry, including a full R&D department. Barnhart is a U.S. company headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee.
