By Hannah Sundermeyer07 December 2022

US Service Group, LLC (USSG), a New York-based industrial services company, has acquired all of the assets and operations of Dalton Rigging and Transport, Inc. (Dalton Rigging) of West Hartford, CT.

Dalton Rigging provides a broad range of rigging and transportation services to customers throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. Kevin Dalton, the president of Dalton Rigging, will be joining the USSG team along with the balance of the Dalton Rigging employees. Combined with Walker Crane & Rigging Corp. of Plainville, CT, which was acquired by USSG earlier this year, USSG has established itself as the premier rigging and transportation operation in Connecticut, the company said.

With the acquisition of Dalton Rigging, USSG continues its strategy of building an industry-leading national rigging, machinery moving, logistics and warehousing business, the company said. 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.

“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, founder and CEO, USSG. “We are very pleased that Kevin Dalton and his team are now part of USSG. With Kevin’s history, stellar reputation, strong customer relationships, and Walker’s broader scope of service capabilities, we see USSG will continue to grow and prosper in this market.”
