Bishop Lifting Products has completed the acquisition of Westech Rigging Supply, with locations in Eugene and Salem, OR. Founded in 1956, Westech has been family owned and operated by the Anderson family, serving customers throughout Oregon. Following the closing, current Westech owner Nick Anderson will assume a leadership role at Bishop Lifting Products.
“We’re excited to continue our growth through acquisition as we reach the milestone of 30 locations to serve our customers,” said Harold King, president, Bishop Lifting Products. “Westech expands on our service of the logging, utility, and related industries in the Northwest. We look forward to working with Nick and the Westech team as we continue to build out our national footprint to serve customers locally with our deep industry knowledge while providing our high-quality products to customers throughout the country via our online platforms.”
Westech marks Bishop’s tenth acquisition since 2012 and is part of Bishop’s ongoing strategy to become the country’s leading provider of lifting products and services, the company said. Including Westech, Bishop provides the scale and footprint of 30 locations across the country.
