About Us

Serving the lifting needs of the construction and heavy industry since 1957

Our founder, John Sakash, loved the challenges of heavy lifting. One customer at a time, he built our reputation as one of the most excellent and complete rigging distributors in the United States.

In 2000, we opened a new rigging center in Elmhurst, Illinois. Combined with our 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 services.

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, a 24-hour hotline, and walk-up counter give you full access to the largest combined inventory in the Midwest. Rental service is available.

"We deliver where you want it – when you want it – exactly like you want it."
