SBP Holdings, through its wholly owned subsidiary Bishop Lifting Products, has completed the acquisition of Delta Rigging & Tools headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Both companies specialize in the fabrication and distribution of slings, wire rope and rigging products, crane and rigging inspection services, engineered solutions, and equipment rental. The new combined company will go to market under the brands Bishop Lifting Products, Delta Rigging & Tools, Delta Rentals & Rigging, and Morgan City Rentals. T will operate a total of 23 branches across the US and employ more than 700 staff.

Derrick Deakins, president of Bishop Lifting Products, said: “The combination of Bishop Lifting and Delta will bring great value to our customers. The wide spectrum of products and services, extended geographic footprint, and technical expertise created by the acquisition positions Bishop Lifting Products to become the clear leader in the wire rope and rigging industry. The addition of rental equipment services will be a new offering that will benefit the combined customer base.”
