USSG Buys Dalton Rigging and Transport

Dec. 6, 2022 – US Service Group LLC (USSG), Deer Park, New York, has acquired all of the assets and operations of Dalton Rigging and Transport Inc. (Dalton Rigging) of West Hartford, Connecticut.

Dalton Rigging provides a broad range of rigging and transportation services to customers throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts.

All Dalton Rigging employees, including President Kevin Dalton, are joining the USSG team.

Earlier this year, USSG bought Walker Crane & Rigging Corp. (Walker), of Plainville, Connecticut.

Together, Dalton Rigging and Walker Crane & Rigging make USSG the premier rigging and transportation operation in Connecticut.

The acquisition of Dalton Rigging continues USSG’s strategy of building an industry-leading national rigging, machinery moving, logistics, and warehousing business.

Along with Able Rigging Contractors, Walker, and Transcope Services, USSG now consists of three separate operating businesses focused on providing rigging and machinery moving services to a diverse customer base including many Fortune 500 and top construction companies in the United States.

Other companies are also in discussions about becoming part of USSG.

"Acquiring Dalton Rigging, along with Walker, strengthens USSG's presence in the New England region and expands our network of rigging and logistics services into this attractive market," said Steve Laganas, USSG founder and CEO. "We are very pleased that Kevin Dalton and his team are now part of USSG."
