Bishop Lifting Products Inc. Acquires Atomic Industrial Marine and Supply
Bishop Lifting Products Inc. (BLP), Houston, has acquired Atomic Industrial Marine and Supply, a New Orleans, La.-based sling fabricator and marine supplies shop. The 20,000-square-foot facility, which BLP has rebranded as Bishop Lifting Products, Inc., stocks domestic and imported rigging hardware, wire rope, chain and marine supplies. The facility will fabricate the company’s synthetic web and roundslings, wire rope and alloy chain slings, as well as perform proof testing up to 200 metric tons.
“BLP has been in a growth phase for some time now and this expansion into New Orleans is required to meet the growing demands of our current customers along the Gulf of Mexico,” said Jeff Bishop, president and COO of Bishop Lifting Products.
