About Murphy Rigging

For over 110 years, Murphy Rigging and Erecting has been the premier rigging, machinery moving, and millwright services company in the Upper Midwest. The list of projects that Murphy Rigging has worked on, both in the United States and throughout the world, is consistently growing more and more impressive. We are very proud to be one of the leading machinery moving and specialty rigging companies in Minnesota.

Murphy Rigging has a long list of accomplishments spanning the nation and across numerous industries. This list includes historic projects such as moving the Quadriga statue at the Minnesota State Capitol, performing the rigging for all of the new sports arenas in the Twin Cities area, and installing some of the most advanced medical equipment available in the midwest at world-class medical facilities.

Murphy Rigging and Erecting sprung from humble beginnings, emerging as one of the first rigging service providers in the Upper Midwest in the early 1900s. Murphy Rigging and Erecting operated across 4 generations under the watch of the Murphy family, who still own and operate Murphy Logistics. Their strong leadership and deep family ties have established them as industry leaders in Minnesota and beyond. 

In 2022, long-time employee Dustin Neuberger acquired Murphy Rigging and Erecting from the Murphy family, beginning a new era of growth and superior service. Dustin prides himself on integrity, honesty, and a steel-hard work ethic. He has been in the machinery moving and rigging business for two decades, helping the Murphy name grow both in recognition and respect as leaders in the logistics and rigging industries. Although ownership has changed, Murphy Rigging and Erecting continues to bolster its strong reputation for safety, innovative solutions, superior customer service, and competitive pricing.

“We cherish the trust that our clients bestow on us when we handle their needs. As professional riggers and millwrights, we understand your relocation concerns and promise the highest safety and quality standards.”
