About Southway



Years of Experience

Our History – Founded in 1992, Southway Crane & Rigging commenced its journey as a dedicated provider of heavy lifting and rigging solutions in Albany and Macon, GA. Our initial focus on serving the mining and industrial markets laid the foundation for a company committed to excellence and reliability.

Expansion and Regional Presence – In 1995, recognizing the growing demand for our services, we expanded into South Carolina, broadening our regional footprint. The year 1999 saw further growth with the establishment of branches in Florida, and by 2008, we had successfully ventured into Alabama. In December of 2012, Southway was acquired by TNT Crane & Rigging.

One Team – Southway started with 10 cranes and now has a local fleet of more than 200 cranes. Through partnership with TNT Crane & Rigging, RMS Cranes, JMS Crane & Rigging, and Eagle West Cranes, The TNT Family of Companies operate as one team. Southway now has access to a versatile fleet of more than 700 cranes and resourceful team of 1,750 employees.

Our Success – Our accomplishments remain rooted in our steadfast dedication to delivering unparalleled service, providing reliable and modern equipment, and prioritizing the safety and well-being of our team. We take pride in our rich history, our enduring commitment to excellence, and our vision for a future where we consistently work to set the benchmark in the crane and rigging industry.
