Days Corp. Sells Machinery-Moving Division to Barnhart


Sept. 16, 2020 - Days Corporation, Elkhart, Indiana, and Barnhart Crane and Rigging Co., Memphis, Tennessee, have entered into an agreement under which Barnhart will purchase Days Machinery Movers, including all of its associated personnel and equipment.


Days Corporation, with business roots in Elkhart since 1913, will retain and continue to operate its core services. Days Corporation divisions include Equalizer Systems and Days Distribution & Logistics (Days Export Packing).


“Days Corporation has a stellar reputation in this region. Its employees and its services are all first class,” said Jim Chapman, Barnhart regional director. “We are blessed to make the Days Machinery Movers operations a part of our team. We think the current Days Machinery Movers customers will be pleased with the expansion of services and equipment this acquisition will bring.”


Days Distribution & Logistics will integrate Days Export Packing into its division to continue to offer new and existing customers the level of service they know and expect. This transition means that Days Distribution & Logistics will offer warehousing, local and regional trucking, woodcutting services, and domestic and export packing and crating.


“We intend to make this transition as seamless as possible. You should take comfort in knowing that the staff, with over 80 years of combined experience, is committed to you and your business,” said Ben Reinoehl, Days Distribution & Logistics division director. “Our plan is to strengthen our position in the export and domestic packing industry while providing our customers with the same exemplary service they have come to know and expect.”
