Rigging Int’l, Sarens Group Partnership

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

A strategic alliance has been formed between Rigging International (RI) of Alameda, California and the Sarens Group of Belgium.  Effective May 31, 2009 Sarens acquired 100% of the shares of RI, which will continue to operate under its present name and current management in the heavy lift rigging and heavy haul transport industry.

The alliance allows the Sarens Group entry into the US market and greater reach internationally. Rigging International’s position is similarly strengthened domestically and worldwide.

The Sarens Group, with headquarters in Wolvertem, Belgium, has been active in crane rental, and heavy lifting and special projects since 1955. Sarens operates in 25 countries and has more than 2100 employees.

Rigging International was founded in 1969 and is celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year.  RI maintains its world headquarters in Alameda, California. They have offices in Southern California, New Jersey, Ohio, Montana and Tokyo.
