The Portland-based transport company bought Action as part of wider plans to expand its reach through strategic acquisitions.
“Action Machinery Moving had just the right people and equipment we need to take on more projects in northern Washington State and in British Columbia,” said Omega Morgan’s president and CEO John McCalla.
Omega Morgan has identified British Columbia as a growth area because of massive infrastructure developments taking place for energy exploration and development.
Action’s assets include off-highway, heavy haul equipment for moving loads to and from lay-down yards and crane erection sites, a dual-lane loader and transporter for super-heavy and oversized loads, and a unique jack-and-slide system for unloading trailers and accessing difficult areas such as under power lines.
Further expansion has seen Omega Morgan open an office in Phoenix, Arizona.
