Chant Acquires Cumberland Equipment Line

Cumberland Gantry2New Britain, PA based, Chant Engineering is proud to announce the acquisition of the Cumberland Equipment Line, a division of Cumberland Sales Company (CSC), Nashville, TN.

The Cumberland Equipment Line started in 1992 specializes in a variety of products from take-up and payout equipment to turntables and meter stands with their specialty in the Cumberland Gantry Style Take Up Machine rated at 5,000 to 60,000lbs reeling capacity. The Cumberland Gantry Style Take Up Machine is well known for the heavy duty capabilities required for big rigging shops as well as provides the perfect amount of back tension needed for proper wire rope spooling.

“This is a fantastic acquisition for Chant Engineering and we are very excited,” says Philip Chant, President of Chant Engineering. “This was the one machinery line we did not make or distribute and will now enable us to be a ‘one-stop shop’ if you will.”

Started in 1976, Chant Engineering has steadily developed their brand as a diversified engineering company that designs, manufactures, services and calibrates testing machines, systems and related accessories for worldwide industrial and military customers. With the addition of the Cumberland Equipment Line, Chant is primed for growth, offering the complete equipment needs for rigging shops.

“Chant Engineering is the pinnacle in equipment manufacturing, we couldn’t be happier about Cumberland Equipment becoming a part of their product line,” said Pat Poe, President of Cumberland Sales Company. Cumberland Sales Company will continue in the wire rope and industrial sales business.

The recent acquisition comes on the heels of Chant’s facility expansion (January 2014) and partnership with Talurit AB (2012). Chant Engineering’s main objective is to keep customer service at the forefront of their business model.

“Chant Engineering has had phenomenal growth and this acquisition will only enhance our position as the premier machinery supplier to the rigging industry,” said Philip Chant.
