Crane and Rigging Facility in Decatur, Alabama

In 1992, Barnhart opened its first branch location, in Decatur, AL. Conveniently located on the Tennessee River, with port access, and home to several manufacturing plants, Decatur was an area that Barnhart felt we could serve. The branch opened with just a few employees and four cranes, the largest of which was a 125 ton Linkbelt HC238 lattice boom truck crane. The Decatur branch has grown and flourished over the years, and is now home to 48 employees and a fleet of 14 cranes, the largest now being a 365 ton Liebherr LTM1300 6.1(365 T Liebherr).
