Barnhart to purchase Days Corporation machinery moving operations
Barnhart Crane and Rigging Co. and Days Corporation, of Elkhart, Indiana, has 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 respected company in the Elkhart area and 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 levelling; equipment setting, which includes anchoring, alignment and grouting; millwright work, including fabrication and ironworking; and plant reorganisation and relocation. Equipment includes flat bed, step deck and double-drop trailers, 450USt gantry system, forklifts of up to 8000lb 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.
Jim Chapman, Barnhart’s regional director said, “Days Corporation has a stellar reputation in this region. Its employees and its services are all first class. We are blessed to make the Days Machinery Movers operations a part of our team.
