Nabholz Acquires Continental Machinery Movers, Opens Location in Nashville

August 21st, 2019 - By

Nashville, Tenn. – Nabholz Corporation of Conway, Ark. recently acquired Continental Machinery Movers, Inc. of Nashville, Tenn. This acquisition allows Nabholz to target a significantly expanded client base, primarily consisting of the region’s industrial and manufacturing facilities, and to offer more of Nabholz’ services in this area, including machinery rigging, equipment installation, industrial transportation, and other turn-key industrial projects.

As part of this acquisition, Nabholz will remain located at Continental Machinery Movers’ current campus on 4717 Centennial Blvd in Nashville. Nabholz will also use this location to house a fleet of new equipment and tools, including specialized tools,  rigging lifts, tractors and trailers.

Most importantly, this acquisition includes a number of highly skilled riggers, mechanics, and industrial craftsmen who have served the region’s manufacturing industry for decades through their tenure at Continental Machinery Movers, Inc., and who are now valued members of the Nabholz team.

Nabholz Industrial President Ben Montgomery is excited about the opportunities this acquisition brings to the Industrial Services group. “The real gain in this acquisition is the group of skilled craftsmen that we are adding to our team. It has become increasingly difficult to find good people with their specific skills in this regional market, and Continental had some great ones.”

“Our main competitive advantage over other industrial service providers in the area is our ability to complete turn-key work for our clients as a single-source contractor. We will immediately start offering our clients the turn-key experience by providing, not only rigging but the electrical, mechanical and alignment of their machinery.

Along with the heavy equipment transport, rigging, and installation this industrial group provides, Nabholz has mobilized a team of multi-skilled craftsmen to this location that specializes in facility maintenance, renovations, tenant finish-outs, specialty installations, concrete foundations and pits and more. This team operates like a “handyman for hire” for commercial and industrial businesses and is capable of handling anything from sign installation to highly-specialized equipment pit installation.

Nabholz was founded in Arkansas in 1949. For 70 years, Nabholz has provided clients with a diverse range of services, including construction, industrial, civil, environmental, and specialty services. In 2012, Nabholz established an industrial team in the Memphis metro area, marking the company’s first venture east of the Mississippi River. Industrial Services provides clients with sole-source-responsibility turn-key machinery moving and installation, including all necessary rigging, millwright, electrical, mechanical piping, welding, fabrication, foundations, and transportation.
