US based Boss (Bennett On Site Services) Crane & Rigging has acquired the super heavy haulage fleet of Cowboy’s Services (CSI). It will also take over the employment contracts of related drivers and operational managers.

Boss Crane & Rigging is based in Houston, Texas and also operates three branches - Longview, due east from Dallas towards Shreveport and Kennedy to the north of Corpus Christi, for cranes and heavy haulage along with Palestine - between Dallas and Houston - for oilfield related services. Cowboy’s is based on the eastern edge of Houston.


Boss president Richard Miller said: “The acquisition of CSI Heavy Haul equipment and a dedicated team of specialists allows us to further expand our offering to existing clients of both entities and grow the client base into new markets with a focus on a more local and regional offering. We are excited to welcome operations manager David Moon and his team of specialists into the Boss family. The team has a proven track record of transporting specialised over-dimensional/over-weight freight safely and efficiently for many years.”
