a time, he built our reputation as one of the finest and most complete rigging distributors
in the United States.

shop in Hammond, Indiana, this brings our capacity to 80,000 sq. ft. Both facilities
offer complete sling fabrication capabilities, along with repair, testing and certification
We serve clients in the construction, manufacturing, steel, utility, marine, towing,
scrap and entertainment industries with standard and custom rigging equipment, seminars,
on-site inspection and training.
We service what we sell. Our delivery service, 24-hour hotline and walk-up counter
give you full access to the largest combined inventory in the Midwest. Rental service
