Throughout our nearly five decades of experience in heavy lift and transport solutions, we have learned that a successful job is built on precise planning and safe execution. This mindset has allowed our business to grow and positively impact some of the most complex projects across two continents. Take a look at what we can do.

Many Lifts, One Solution: Modular Lift System Flexes Hydraulic Muscles During Process Plant Overhaul

Deep South crews were challenged to haul, lift, and set 84 modules, including three towers (one measuring 100’ long, 350,000 lbs.) as well as various pieces of process equipment, such as piping, tanks, PDC buildings, and transformers—all within a tight schedule. Many of the modules had offset centers of gravity further complicating the lift and set.
