Founded in 1984 and based in Westhampton Beach, Long Island Crane & Rigging has been serving Long Island and New York City for 40 years.

Garland Robeson, President of Capital Extension, said “Long Island Crane & Rigging is a welcome addition to our family of brands with its skilled team and reputation for responsiveness, professionalism and ability to handle complex projects, and further increases our coverage in the New York area.” According to Brad Allan, President of Long Island Crane & Rigging, “the cultural and strategic fit with Capital Extension and its other portfolio companies has been perfect and the additional capital and other resources they bring will greatly benefit our customers and employees.” Allan will be staying on and continuing in his leadership role.

Allan also stated, “The entire Protegrity team were great – everyone involved was responsive, knowledgeable, effective and personable – I will be recommending Protegrity to anyone contemplating a possible sale of their company and in fact, I already have.” Echoing Brad Allan’s sentiments, Garland Robeson added that “we appreciated the fact that Long Island Crane was represented by such competent and experienced advisors as Protegrity and we look forward to working with their team again.”
