A Little History

            ALL-LIFTS, INC., founded in 1966, was originally a fabricator of wire rope and chain slings. As the local marketplace became more competitive, the management of All-

Lifts decided to expand the range of products and services they offered to their customers. This expansion led to the purchase a 350,000 lbs. proof testing machine, and as of April 2016 we have added a 800,000 lbs. test bead.  By adding this equipment, ALL-LIFTS, INC. had developed into a manufacturer as well as a distributor of high quality rigging supplies. To further expand sling making capabilities at ALL-LIFTS, an industrial sewing machine was added in the mid 80's. Now, fabric sling assemblies made of nylon and polyester could be supplied to local contractors and

industries.

Over the past 50 years, the products and services that were offered by ALL-LIFTS continued to expand and grow beyond the making of slings and distribution of rigging hardware. With a reputation for innovative solutions for material lifting problems, ALL-LIFTS began to design and build custom lifting beams and fixtures. To meet demand, steel fabrication equipment was needed. A band saw able to cut shapes 18" x 20", a radial arm drill press with a 4' arm and 13" column capable of turning a 3" bit, and several welding machines were purchased. To insure product quality and increase proof testing capabilities, a test machine designed to proof load lifting beams to 1,600,000 lbs. was built. In addition to under-the-hook lifting devices, ALL-LIFTS, INC. also began to manufactures bridge, jib, and gantry cranes up to 20 ton capacity.

Today, ALL-LIFTS continues to provide its customers with top quality rigging and lifting products. Customer service has remained a major priority, and the staff at ALL-LIFTS strives to insure customer satisfaction. One program that has been specifically designed to provide customer service is the Sling Testing and Evaluation Partnership (S.T.E.P.). This program includes on site sling inspections, and a one hour educational seminar that focuses on how to recognize slings that should be removed from service. In addition to slings, ALL-LIFTS also inspects, repairs, and tests chain pullers and hoists.

Over the last several years, the industry has made changes to the regulations. In particular have been changes to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers standard B30, requiring the training of all personnel who perform lifting and rigging duties. All-Lifts, Inc. has recognized the costs associated with accidents and fines that result from a lack of rigging knowledge and expertise for years. There has been a growing demand for training seminars covering rigging procedures and regulations. To help educate our customers on the proper use, care, and maintenance of all types of rigging equipment, ALL-LIFTS has developed a detailed training seminar that focuses on these issues. To meet your specific needs, an outline of all available discussion topics has been provided below.

We also strongly recommend that companies purchase copies of Crosby Groups Pocket Riggers Guide. This guide gives valuable information on rigging equipment and slings. These guides are plastic laminated and will be an excellent reference for your employees for many years.

Seminar material is presented by using the latest technology and hands on materials. We have developed our seminar to be used with Power point and projected onto a large screen with a multimedia projector. To get better participation we have instituted Key point Interactive system for attendee feedback thru out the program. We also use a multitude of damaged or defective sling materials for the attendees to inspect.
