Printing Press Rigging


We have planned and executed critical rigging projects in the printing industry. We have proved our expertise in handling heavy printing machinery for Gannett Publishing and USA Today. We handled all installations with extreme care and high accuracy. You can trust us for any industrial rigging such as commercial printing press relocation projects.


Murphy Rigging has become a household name for medical industry rigging services. We have relocated countless machines for some of Minnesota’s most respected hospitals and clinics. We have also successfully moved X-Ray machines, MRI machines, and lab equipment. Most medical payloads are heavy but fragile and need specialized rigging plans. We can relocate your expensive hardware through tight spaces with minimal damage to the surroundings.

telecom rigging


Murphy Rigging is experienced in all aspects of telecom rigging. We have worked extensively on moving heavy industrial-scale equipment through challenging terrain and operational constraints. Our pinnacle project in the telecom rigging field would be the installation of a new “Weather Ball” by KSTP on top of their building. It was a delicate rigging job requiring high levels of accuracy and rigging acumen.

Millwright Services


With up to 450-ton capacity, no machinery is too big for Murphy Rigging to handle. Our investments in capacity-building have helped us become a go-to service provider in the region for industrial rigging and the moving of manufacturing equipment. Whether you have a new machine to be installed in your plant or need to relocate an entire manufacturing facility, our experience in moving heavy equipment will help you achieve high standards of safety and precision.

Our team also has extensive experience in handling delicate artwork and pressure-sensitive materials.
