Floyd D. Clark, founder of Niagara Erecting and Clark Rigging, established his first company, Niagara Erecting and Sheeting Co., in 1954 specializing in steel erecting, reinforcing, and sheeting.

In 1957, his company was incorporated as Niagara Erecting, Inc.

The Power Project, which began in 1958, gave a big boost to the company. He rented his A-Frame trucks and re-rented cranes to various Power Project contractors. Niagara Falls was a heavily industrialized city at the time and there were frequent projects at Carbide, Hooker, Stauffer Chemical, Pittsburgh Met, Carborundum and other industrial companies.

Floyd Clark was very aware of the need for cranes in the world of construction, and purchased his first crane, a Browning Truck Crane. Clark Rigging & Rental was incorporated as an equipment rental company in 1960... and his rental fleet has been growing ever since. Clark's companies have continued to thrive despite the fact that many industrial companies have left the Niagara Falls area. Four of his five children have entered Clark Rigging's work force. All of them are dedicated to ensuring the future of the Clark companies. They have purchased bigger cranes, traveled to jobs in other areas, and adapted to changing times.

Clark Rigging is headquartered in Lockport, NY, with branch offices in Rochester and Syracuse to serve the needs of customers throughout Western and Central New York, the Southern Tier, and Northern Pennsylvania.
