NCSG acquires Mullen Rigging

Canadian crane group NCSG Crane & Heavy Haul Services (Northern Crane) has acquired Calgary-based, Mullen Rigging and Industrial Services. (Not to be confused with Mullen Crane and Transport of Soda Springs, Idaho, which NSCG acquired in 2008.)

As a part of the transaction, Jamie and Jackie Mullen as well as the other owners of Mullen Rigging plan to remain with the business in their current roles. They will also have a role within NCSG to expand the specialty rigging capabilities of NCSG as a whole.

Mullen Rigging was founded in Calgary in 2006 by the Mullens and is a leading supplier of specialty rigging, lifting, and hauling services across Alberta and specifically in the Calgary and Edmonton/Leduc/Nisku regions. It runs a fleet of specialist pick & carry and knuckle boom cranes with capacities up to 60 tons and a extensive line of mobile jacking systems.

NCSG president Ted Redmond said: “Jamie Mullen and his team have built a great business providing their many customers with specialised solutions to their lifting, moving and hauling needs. Mullen Rigging broadens NCSG’s rigging expertise and provides additional equipment including hydraulic gantries, jacking systems, and gives us additional jack & slide crews in Calgary and Leduc.”

“We plan to add Mullen Rigging’s gantries and other equipment/services to the services offered by NCSG’s existing branches, and offer NCSG’s crane and heavy haul services to the important Calgary market from Mullen Rigging’s Calgary location.”

Jamie Mullen added: “Mullen Rigging’s experienced crews will continue to provide our long term customers with our specialised knowledge of rigging, gantry, jack and slide, hauling, and lifting services. With access to NCSG’s team of over 630 employees and its fleet of over 285 cranes, 215 lines of hydraulic platform trailers, 280 conventional trailers and 78 tractors, Mullen Rigging will be able to take on larger projects and meet even more of our customers' rigging, moving, lifting and heavy haul needs.”
