Chicago, USA-based Alps Wire Rope Corporation has been appointed as a distributor for UK-based stainless steel shackle and wire rope fitting manufacturer Petersen Stainless Rigging Ltd. Stock is being held for immediate delivery from Alps’ Houston location of Petersen’s high-strength ‘PH’ stainless steel lifting shackles.

Alps said it provides products that are top quality and deliver reliable service, which pairs well with Petersen Stainless Steel Rigging. "We have set the standards high for quality rigging and look forward to shaping America’s infrastructures and rigs with Petersen’s well engineered, dependable products," the company said.

“We are thrilled to be working with Alps," said Kevin Bell, CEO of Peterson Stainless Rigging Ltd. "They have four strategically placed locations in the USA - Houston, TX, Saint Charles, IL, Harrisburg, PA and Alhambra, CA - from which they are well equipped to provide excellent service. The new partnership means that Petersen Stainless Rigging can continue to develop its global reach to customers. Alps can offer the US lifting industry the same quick and responsive service that is so prized by our European customers.”
