Bishop Lifting, a producer of wire rope, slings, and rigging and a portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners, has purchased Worswick Group Holdings, with 10 operating locations across Florida.
Founded in 1958 as Certified Slings and Supply, the business has expanded under the Worswick family to include Bubba Off-Road Recovery Gear, Florida Wire & Rigging Supply, Secured Global and Academy Training Center and serves customers across Florida, the U.S. and internationally. The deal marks Bishop’s 11th acquisition since 2012 and the fourth add-on acquisition since Altamont acquired the company.
“We’re excited to continue our growth through this acquisition of a company that contributes great people and culture, as well as establish a physical presence in the Florida market,” comments Harold King, president of Bishop Lifting. “Doug and his team have built a reputation for exceptional customer service across a number of end markets including the entertainment and mining industries. We look forward to building on their success as we continue to expand our national footprint to serve customers locally with our deep industry knowledge and high-quality products.”
