New Swager Machine Up to 6" Wire Rope Slings


To continue to serve the ever increasing demands of the offshore industry, Bishop Lifting Products has added a new wire rope swager in the Houston Rigging Department. The new 3700 metric ton Talurit swager was installed and operational in early November. The new capacity will allow BLP to swage up to 6 inch diameter wire rope. This will be replacing our 1500 ton swager which is being sent to the Broussard, LA branch as an addition to their current Rigging Department.

Liftmax® Telescoping Spreader Bar

The most common lifting device Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. fabricates is the Liftmax® Spreader Bar.  Spreader bars are normally made out of pipe and have top and bottom lifting points on opposing ends.  This specialized version of a traditional spreader bar is a tubular design with adjustable pins so that the bar can expand or contract based on minimum and maximum length requirements.

Houston Crane Operators Wins CIC Crane Operator Skills Competition



On what turned out to be a blustery fall morning, six Gulf Coast area crane operators competed for top honors in the Crane & Rigging Hot Line & CIC Crane Operator Skills Competition. The regional event was held at Webber LLC in northeast Houston on Oct. 18, 2013.


Winning a coveted spot in the finals to be held in Las Vegas in March, 2014 was Mike Barker, representing LyondellBasell, a Houston-based petrochemical company. The Crosby, Texas native has been in the construction business for 37 years-virtually all of his working life. Did the wind, which gusted to 20 mph at times, pose any problems for Barker as he negotiated the course? "Not too much," he said. For more information on the competition, click here. Congrats Mike!
