Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. (BLP) was awarded the 2009 SlingMax Golden Hoagie award for being the top SlingMax ® dealer of 2009. This is the fourth time in six years that BLP has received the top Slingmax ® national dealer award. Over the past 16 years, BLP has continually been in the top 5 SlingMax Dealers worldwide, and was one of the first dealers set up in 1988.

Jeff Susman, President of SlingMax Rigging Solutions headquartered in Aston, Pennsylvania, hosted a party on April 20, 2010 at Bishop Lifting's Houston headquarters to present the award. One hundred and thirty employees were treated to specially made Hoagie sandwiches and Tasty Cakes flown in from Philadelphia.

"We work hard to supply Slingmax ® products to all our customers," said Jeff Bishop, President of Bishop Lifting. "It is a great achievement for our company and employees to be honored for the fourth time and we appreciate the support Slingmax ® provides us."

The use of high performance slings plays an important role in the crane and rigging industry. Bishop Lifting Products fabricates a variety of sling types, but has always done exceptionally well with Slingmax® Rigging Solutions. Slings are used for lifting any type of load no matter the size, weight or shape. Bishop Lifting Products partnered with Slingmax ® to supply the right Twin-Path ® or Gator-Laid ® sling for each lifting job. Industries that utilize slings for their lifting applications include aerospace, construction, crane and rigging, government and military, manufacturing, commercial fishing, mining, oil & gas, petrochemical, pipeline, and power generation.
