The Murphy Rigging Difference


Experience The Murphy Rigging Difference

Murphy Rigging is a fourth-generation family-owned rigging company, built on trust and commitment. We specialize in rigging, millwright, erecting, and heavy hauling services. Since 1904, we have helped countless businesses relocate their expensive assets across the globe. Our experience has taught us to master three key aspects of rigging services: precision, safety, and customer service with the utmost dedication. We remain steadfast in our commitment to the businesses that entrust us with their valuable assets.

Murphy is For All

We are proud to serve government and private organizations of every scale for all their rigging needs. No rigging job is too small or too big for us. We invest in a state-of-the-art rigging inventory and the regular training of our workforce to maintain the Murphy standard of rigging excellence in each project that we undertake.

Murphy Process

At Murphy Rigging, we put the customer first. Developing a rigging solution starts with understanding the customers’ requirements and is often followed by a job site visit. Our riggers will then provide you with practical rigging solutions that are cost-effective and provide enough operational flexibility to meet your needs.

Murphy Employees

The art of rigging boils down to experience. A vast experience of more than 110 years as a trusted rigging company enables us to attract the best craftsmen who will remain committed to safety and precision. We treat our workers like family, which reflects deeply in our services. We have employees at our rigging company who represent the second or third generation in their family to work for Murphy. We thoroughly follow OSHA safety guidelines for all of our projects.

Murphy Personalization

One key differentiator in our rigging services is our level of personalization. We provide a one-on-one focus for every rigging project we commit to fulfilling. Whether you want a single-piece machine moved or an entire plant, you are always assured of relocation according to your requirements.

Murphy Ancillary Services

Murphy offers integrated relocation services to handle all your relocation services. Our parent company provides heavy lift logistics services to transport any equipment safely to any part of the globe. We also operate 14 logistics campuses throughout Minnesota and Missouri.

Murphy Innovation Through the Years

At Murphy Rigging, we believe that every age comes with new challenges and solutions. In the 1940s, we loaded taconite onto rail cars using specialized equipment. In the 1980s, we removed the giant National Christmas Tree in Bemidji. In 2013, we installed an MRI machine through a hole in the roof at Hennepin County Medical Center. Murphy Rigging Company has always been at the forefront of innovation.
