Associated Wire Rope & Rigging was incorporated in 1994, beginning as a broker for products in the rigging and lifting industry. Through the years we have established strong working relationships with suppliers / manufacturers that have grown into exclusive relationships, due to our strong supplier loyalty coupled with our philosophy to provide superior customer service to those who put their trust in our company. In the late 1990s we partnered with Waterman Supply Company in Wilmington, CA to develop and establish key distributorship agreements with suppliers. Waterman Supply brings logistics expertise that fits well with our sales & marketing skills.
Product Lines that we represent include RopeBlock, which is a Dutch manufacturer of Crane Blocks, Overhaul Balls, Snatch Blocks, Hooks, Sockets and many other items for the lifting industry. RopeBlock currently supplies OEM blocks and overhaul balls & sockets to many global crane manufacturers including Terex/Demag, Manitowoc/Grove, Liebherr plus many specialty crane manufacturers in the oil and gas exploration industry. We represent RopeBlock in North America and distribute blocks and overhaul balls & sockets through three channels: industrial distribution, crane dealers and crane manufacturers. Currently, Kobelco, Tadano, Tadano Mantis, Broderson, Terex & Manitowoc/Grove are some of the crane manufacturers that purchase RopeBlock products for use on their equipment. The full line of RopeBlock products are available through crane and rigging distributors throughout North America.
