Bennett International Group Opens Boss Crane & Rigging in Texas

May 29, 2015

McDonough, GA (May 29, 2015) – Bennett International Group, LLC announces its newest venture – Bennett On-Site Services, LLC (BOSS). BOSS, with its main office located in Longview, Texas, adds crane, lifting, and rigging services to Bennett’s ever-growing list of offerings that includes trucking, drive-away, supply chain management, manufactured portable buildings and more.

David Lowry, president of BOSS, said the addition of this new venture is just another avenue of growth that serves the needs of Bennett’s existing customers and new customers.

“Over the years we’ve seen a need for crane, lifting and rigging services and our customers have expressed interest, so the opportunities were there,” Lowry said. “We thought about it for a long time and when the facility became available in Longview, Texas that had previously housed a crane operation and with the customer base already there, we decided to take advantage of it.”

The Longview location is strategically located a half mile off I-20 in east Texas, and after having a Bennett Motor Express location nearby, Lowry said it’s already a significant traffic lane for Bennett.

BOSS’s initial equipment includes two Grove TMS 9000 E 110 ton class cranes that offer a 5-section full-power megaform boom that eliminates weight and increases capacity, a Grove GMK 5165 165 ton class all-terrain crane from Germany, two 300L 350 ton class cranes known for operator comfort and stability, and a Grove GMK 7550 550 ton class hydraulic mobile crane that when fully extended has a 475 foot reach. Services offered will support regional industries such as oil and gas, construction, pulp and paper, mining, power generation, petrochemical and more.

BOSS offers its customers what they refer to as “The BOSS Advantage” that includes some of the best operators, riggers, and drivers, along with a solid management team that combined has more than 100 years of experience and expertise.

Lee Gentry, executive vice president of Bennett International Group, said after seeing the team’s efforts as the new equipment came in, he was impressed.

“We have a great team of people who are qualified and know what they’re doing,” Gentry said. “All operators are certified and the health, safety, and environmental processes are all in place to ensure safety.”

With the new equipment, the latest in technology, a solid quality control plan, a safety culture of the utmost importance and the support of Bennett and all its affiliates and experienced people, that’s a big advantage – the BOSS advantage.

Bennett On-Site Services is an affiliate of Bennett International Group that offers crane and rigging solutions located in Longview, Texas. McDonough-Ga.-based Bennett International Group is a woman-owned, Women’s Enterprise Business Council (WBENC) certified, diversified transportation company. Through its eight affiliated operating companies Bennett International Group delivers integrated transportation and supply chain management solutions worldwide.
