TNT Acquires Southway Crane & Rigging Companies

TNT Crane & Rigging Inc. has merged with the Southway Crane & Rigging Companies, headquartered in Macon, Ga. Southway is a full-service mobile crane provider with eight branches serving the southeast United States, including Georgia, South Carolina, northern Florida, and Tennessee. With the addition of Southway, TNT has expanded its geographic operations from Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma to an area that spans from West Texas to the Atlantic seaboard.


TNT now owns approximately 380 cranes and provides full-service capabilities, utilizing its portfolio of truck-mounted, all-terrain, rough-terrain, crawlers, mobile gantries, and rigging solutions with lifting capacities ranging from 3 to 1,330 tons. TNT also has diversified its client base with the acquisition of Southway and its presence in the power, pulp and paper, telecom, and mining businesses. TNT participates in these and other industry vertical markets, including refining, petrochemical, oil and gas, wind (maintenance), and general commercial construction.


Jerry Reynolds, founder and majority shareholder of Southway, will join TNT as executive vice president running the southeast region and will continue as president of the Southway companies.
