Bishop Lifting Products, a producer of wire rope, slings, and rigging and a portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners, has bought Silver State Wire Rope and Rigging, a Las Vegas-based supplier of rigging and safety equipment.

Silver State was founded in 1991 with a focus on the mining, industrial and construction sectors. Today, the company has expanded to also service the entertainment industry. Through scale and geographic footprint expansion, Bishop looks to deliver greater service and lifting services to its customers. With the acquisition of Silver State, Bishop now has 28 locations across the country. Pete Rogers will continue his role as general manager of Silver State with Andrew Rogers serving as operations manager.

“We’re excited to continue our growth through acquisitions under our partnership with Altamont Capital,” comments Harold King, president of Bishop Lifting Products. “Silver State has built a reputation as a trusted partner to mining and entertainment customers in Nevada and across the nation. We look forward to working with Pete, Andrew, and the Silver State team as we continue to build out our national footprint while remaining focused on high-quality products and customer service.”
