Versabar was founded in 1981 by University of Illinois Civil Engineering Graduate Jon Khachaturian. Beginning with the reusable spreader bar, Jon has presently registered 56 foreign and domestic patents, leading Versabar to a position of world leadership in the development and application of heavy lifting solutions. Pioneering the disciplines of certified weight measurement and proof load testing, Versabar has expanded its international portfolio to include hydraulic winch and custom chain jack rental, subsea lowering systems, umbilical and riser pull-ins and deployment of subsea jumper bars. Versabar helps clients manage risk while delivering solutions to increasingly complex projects.
