Bishop Lifting Products announced that it has completed the acquisition of Western Sling & Supply Company. Headquartered in the Denver, Colorado suburb of Sedalia, along with a branch operation in Casper, Wyoming, Western Sling & Supply Company is recognized as one of the leading providers of rigging and lifting equipment in the Rocky Mountain region of the US. This acquisition expands Bishop Lifting’s presence in the Midwest regions of the US, along with broadening the company’s access to new end markets currently being serviced by Western Sling & Supply.
“Strategically, the acquisition of Western Sling complements and strengthens our existing operations in the Rocky Mountain region,” Harold King, Bishop Lifting President, said. “Western Sling & Supply, and its customers, should benefit from gaining access to the broad range of rental and custom engineered and fabricated lifting products offered by Bishop Lifting.”
“This union between Bishop and Western solidifies our mutual strengths in the energy, construction and manufacturing markets. We are excited to be part of the plan,” Stan Truitt, President of Western Sling and Supply, said.
Bishop Lifting, along with Singer Equities and Dakota Fluid Power, are wholly owned subsidiaries of SBP Holdings, headquartered in Houston, TX.
