    Rigging Inspection Services

    As we are starting 2018, don’t forget to inspect all Rigging and Lifting Equipment to make sure that it is ready for another year of service. You can perform these periodic rigging inspections at any time of the year, but it is important to understand that users are required by ASME standards to perform a periodic inspection of all of your slings and hardware at least once a year.  

    Bishop Lifting’s Services Department is available to come to your location and perform rigging inspection services. If you are interested in having Bishop’s Services department perform a periodic inspection on your rigging equipment contact them at 713-674-2266 or services@lifting.com.  Our team can help you develop an inspection schedule that best suits your company's needs.  Sometimes due to severity of use, periodic inspections can be required to be performed monthly, quarterly or annually. 

    You are not required to use a third party for your periodic rigging inspections, and can use any of your employees that consider to be qualified based on experience and training. If you do not feel that you have any employees that are qualified, Bishop Lifting also offers training on rigging gear inspection. We offer many training options from 1 hour presentations all the way up to 2 day Rigging Inspector courses. The length of the training and the scheduling can be customized to meet your needs and your schedule. For more information contact our training department at 713-674-2266 or training@lifting.com.

    Hurricane Harvey Update

    To our Customers, Suppliers and Friends,

    Bishop Lifting Products and Delta Rigging & Tools have made it through Hurricane Harvey and the Houston, Angleton and Sulphur offices officially reopened for business on Thursday, August 31st. Hurricane Harvey hit Texas harder than expected, impacting millions, displacing hundreds of thousands. We prepared prior to the storm and remained in constant contact with our employees throughout the storm. All of our employees are safe, but many have water damage to their homes and cars, and few have lost everything.

    Please contact us in regards to new or existing orders. Normal shipments and orders may take longer due to road conditions, freight delays and facility closures. Our other locations are helping with production to support our customers and utilizing inventory within our groups to minimize supply chain disruptions. Our team will do everything to help you meet your project deadlines.

    Our parent company, SBP Holdings, set up a Go Fund Me account for employees affected by the storm. SBP will match employee contributions dollar for dollar over the next 14 days. 100% of contributions will go directly to SBP employees affected by the storm.  If you feel the need to donate, please contribute at: https://www.gofundme.com/sbpblp-employees-flood-relief 

    Thank you for your patience as our company returns to normal business. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been adversely affected.
