About Us

Machinery Moving has been providing quality rigging services for almost 50 years. The company was founded in February of 1967 by Max Luther and Don Lienhoop, who remained equal partners until Max decided to retire and sold his half back to the company in 1992. Max did not venture far, however, staying on in retirement as general manager until 2009, when Don decided to retire himself he sold the company to JR Industries. The company changed hands one more time, in 2013 when it was purchased by Mark Thomas of Thomas Plastic Machinery Inc. Mark has 34 years of experience in the rigging industry. Since 2013, Machinery Moving has continued to experience tremendous growth and opened a second location in Indianapolis in April of 2015.
