BLP Lafayette Branch Moves Into New Facility



Bishop Lifting Products Lafayette is proud to announce its recent move from New Iberia to Broussard in late November. The new 12,500 square foot building that sits on 4.5 acres south of Lafayette, LA,  is located on Petroleum Parkway and Highway 90 and is a much larger and more modern facility. Along with a 500,000 lb test bed that is being installed in January, there is a 500 ton ESCO swagger along with a 500 ton National and a 20,000 lb. walk through spooling machine. This facility expansion will allow the Lafayette branch to grow in Louisiana as well as along the Gulf Coast.


Vern McGehee, Branch Manager in New Iberia, says "we have needed this move for a while. This new space allows for greater inventory, new testing facilities and more employees."


This is an ISO 9001:2008 certified location.
