Guy M. Turner Inc. of Greensboro, N.C., has been in business since 1924. When Jimmy Clark purchased the company in 1985, it consisted of four or five cranes, a few trucks and about five rigging crews. There are several factors that determine how a company grows and what it does. In the case of Guy M. Turner it boils down to one thing — hard work and delivering and doing what he says.

Over the last 30 years, the company has grown, the current numbers include about 55 cranes, 15 rigging crews and seven heavy haul locations. Every division has increased and become diverse, allowing the company to cover most of the United States.
