Barnhart to acquire Taylor Crane Rental

Barnhart Crane and Rigging and Taylor Crane Rental, of St. Louis, MO, have entered into an agreement under which Barnhart will purchase Taylor, including its operated crane rental service and all associated personnel and equipment.

Barnhart will purchase the St.Louis, MO-based company, including its operated crane rental service and all associated personnel and equipment. 

“Taylor has an excellent reputation for customized lifting solutions for jobs of all sizes, as well as a highly-trained and dedicated staff,” said Dan Webb, regional director, Barnhart. “Their team will help to secure Barnhart’s position as the best lifting and logistics provider in the region.”

Established in 1946, Taylor Crane Rental is a family-owned and -operated business that provides crane rental and crane services within a 300-mile radius of St. Louis, MO. The acquisition will further enhance Barnhart’s presence in the Midwest, where Barnhart already operates a number of branches in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Kentucky.

“Taylor’s customer base will continue to receive the same quality service and product offerings as they have for the past 77 years and will benefit from access to Barnhart’s nationwide network of locations backed up by project cargo logistics capabilities, its engineering department with more than 60 engineers, and its own fleet of barges for transport on inland waterways,” said Jack Taylor, principal, Taylor Crane Rental.
