Our History

CMR Crane & Rigging LLC, formerly, Commercial Moving & Rigging opened its doors in 1993 with one pickup truck and one employee. Originally owned and operated by Glenn Cooper, CMR Crane & Rigging has grown into one of the Washington Metropolitan area’s most well-known name in crane and rigging.

Recently, Glenn’s three sons (Cliff, Troy & RC Cooper), son-in-law (Chip Lee) and nephew (David Weedon) purchased the company. The Company is now operating under the name CMR Crane & Rigging, LLC. Glenn has left big shoes to fill for his family.

After 20+ years of service CMR Crane & Rigging currently employs over 30 people with approximately one-third of the staff being family members. Family is important to us and we take great pride in what we have built for our customers, employees and friends. The new ownership and management’s goal is to continue to grow and build the company for years to come
