Bishop Lifting acquires Woods Logging4 April 2019
Houston, Texas-based Bishop Lifting Products has acquired Longview, Washington-based Woods Logging and Industrial Supply. Woods Logging was established in 1978 and specialises in providing wire rope for cranes, rigging products, spooling services, on-site inspections, and hydraulic solutions to the logging, marine and construction industries.
Bishop Lifting Products supplies a range of products to the overhead lifting industry, including hoists from Harrington Hoists, Chester, and Tuffy; Slingmax Rigging Solutions products; hand-powered, electric and heavy-duty winches; and its own range of Liftmax below-the-hook lifting devices.
Harold King, president of Bishop Lifting, said: “Today’s announcement is continued support of our company-wide goal of geographic and end market diversification. Woods Logging has a long history of professional sales and service within the area, making them a great addition to our team.”
The acquisition will allow Bishop Lifting to continue to expand its national footprint to the Pacific Northwest, said the company.
