ProLift Acquires Advanced Riggers & Millwrights

Feb 12, 2020

ProLift Rigging, LLC, has acquired Advanced Riggers & Millwrights (ARM), LLC, a rigging and plant relocation company based in Riverside, California.

Former Advanced Riggers and Millwrights owner and CEO Jerry Huffman will continue to lead the team in serving customers across the western United States. The branch will retain its name and provide the same quality service, now complemented by ProLift’s heavy lifting and rigging expertise and nation-wide footprint.

ARM has a long history of exceptional project-based machinery moving, plant relocation services, equipment installation services, warehousing, crating and transportation services. The acquisition will add an outstanding bench of certified riggers; experienced sales, project management, dispatch and back office personnel; 60,000 square feet of warehouse space; and VersaLifts with up to 140k capacity. The ARM team, tools and facilities provide additional depth to ProLift’s project buffering capabilities – equipment moved from OEM to storage to site, set safely.

“Our team is excited to be joining the ProLift Rigging group,” Huffman said. “We share the same strategic vision and purpose to help others. With our plant relocation experience, coupled with ProLift’s heavy lifting capabilities and national presence, we knew this would be a great combination. This is a win-win deal.”

Founded in 2010, ProLift Rigging Company is a full-service heavy lifting and rigging team helping a wide variety of owners and contractors constructing and maintaining mission critical physical infrastructure. Whether customers have small, standalone components or major, multiple-machine lineups, ProLift has the experience and equipment to remove and replace or install any-size machine or component. Customers can leverage ProLift’s highly-proficient machinery movers and specialized rigging equipment to manage risk and minimize downtime to their operations.
