Barnhart has purchased a division of a respected and established Midwest company, Days Corporation of Elkhart, Indiana. Under a recent agreement, Barnhart will acquire Days Machinery Movers, including all associated personnel and equipment of that business unit.
Days Corporation, a family owned business, will retain and continue to operate the same core services it has offered since 1913. Their active divisions include Days Export Packing, Days Distribution & Logistics and Equalizer Systems.
“Days Corporation has a stellar reputation in this region. Its employees and its services are all first class. We think current Days Machinery Movers customers will be pleased with the expansion of services and equipment this acquisition will bring,” said Jim Chapman, Barnhart Regional Director.
Barnhart’s new machinery moving operation in Elkhart offers rigging, including machine installation and leveling. Equipment setting, which includes anchoring, alignment and grouting and millwright work, is offered. Fabrication, ironworking and plant reorganization and relocation are also among its services.
Their equipment includes flat bed, step deck and double-drop trailers and a 450-ton gantry system. Forklifts of up to 80,000-pound capacity and Versa-Lift and TriLifter specialty lifts are also a part of the inventory.
The acquisition will further enhance Barnhart’s presence in the Midwest, where Barnhart already operates several branches in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan and Ohio. With a current network of more than 50 facilities, Barnhart provides world-class service through a local presence.
