Delta Rigging said, “The acquisition of D&M establishes Delta Rigging as a leading provider of wire rope and rigging throughout Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The acquisition is the seventh in the last three years by Delta Rigging.”

D&M Wire Rope is based in Grand Junction, Colorado, and specializes in the fabrication and distribution of chain, wire rope, wire rope slings, synthetic slings, and rigging hardware. D&M is one of the largest tire chains distributors in the Rocky Mountain area. D&M also has testing and certification capabilities for various types of rigging and lifting products. D&M is the leading rigging operation in the Rocky Mountain region focused primarily on the mining and land-based oil and gas drilling industries. D&M employs 35 full-time employees and all are expected to remain with the company.

“D&M will allow Delta Rigging to expand its footprint from the Gulf Coast region into the Rocky Mountains and more efficiently serve the mining and land-based oil and gas markets. We are very confident that Jim Davis, the founder of D&M Wire Rope, and his highly-trained group of employees will make a significant contribution to our growth plans,” said Kevin P Rodgers, CEO of Delta Rigging.

“Delta Rigging is highly regarded in the wire rope and rigging industry, and we are excited to be their partner in becoming the one-stop resource for mining customers, drilling companies, contractors and large industrial users of rigging and lifting products,” said Davis, founder and CEO of D&M Wire Rope.
