Company History
Lifting Train for the Brownsville Musum of HistoryIn 1952, with one crane, a forklift, pipe for rollers and three-man crew, Walter E. Plitt, Jr. started the family tradition of providing first class services to South Texas and Northern Mexico. It has been a family business ever since. Sixty-five years and four generations later we still provide excellent crane, rigging, millwright, and mechanical services to South Texas, Monterrey, Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa, Rio Bravo, Valle Hermoso and Matamoros, Mexico. 

In addition to rigging and millwright expertise, we offer fabrication, overhead crane assembly and certified electricians and welders. We are also the leading NAFTA plant moving and rigging service in South Texas and Northern Mexico. Over the years, we have met the challenge of placing fragile machinery in almost impossible situations. We have handled, placed, assembled, set and leveled “run lines” and “drops” on virtually every type and size of machine. For example, when the Historic Brownsville Museum sent out their “one of a kind” train engine for renovation, they called Plitt.

Padre Island StatueWe are proud of our accomplishments, and are safety wise - never having lost a customer due to an incompetent act.  We have never been cited by O.S.H.A., and our International Insurance includes $2 million dollar General Liability with “Care Custody” and “Hook” coverage.  Our employees are enthusiastic and work well with customers’ employees and/or under customer’s supervision, as part of a team effort.  The pride we take in completing tasks safely at a quick and steady pace is only possible with our experienced working supervisors and crewmen. 

Specializing in such moves with exact precision has given us the opportunity to perform the majority of plant moves in our area. We depend on repeat business and referrals from old and valued customers for the future and betterment of our company. Finally, our hopes are that we will have the opportunity to be of service to you in the near future.
