Deep South Crane & Rigging, LLC has been a leader in the heavy-lift and heavy-haul businesses since the 1980’s. Family owned and operated, we specialize in planning and executing rigging and lifting projects that other companies would call infeasible or impossible.

Our talented staff of mechanics plays a vital role in the maintenance of our entire fleet of trucks, cranes, and heavy equipment. Our corporate office is in Baton Rouge, LA with other offices located in Lake Charles, LA, Beaumont, TX, Houston, TX, and Ashland, KY. This position will be based out of our Baton Rouge office.
