“Burkhalter represents an excellent fit for Barnhart, and this acquisition further enhances Barnhart’s market position as the lifting and logistics provider of choice,” said Brooke Burkhalter, branch manager, Columbus, MS, Burkhalter. “Burkhalter has a good reputation for engineering custom solutions that mirrors our own approach. Burkhalter customers will benefit from access to Barnhart’s nationwide network of locations, our engineering department with more than 60 engineers and our own fleet of barges for transport on inland waterways.”
