Bishop Lifting Products.
Bishop Lifting Products Inc. (BLP) is claiming a pipeline sling
record with its completion of a recent order for 64-inch pipeline
lowering-in-belts and steel-lined choker belts. Bishop says
lowering-in-belts are normally suspended from side-boom tractors to
lower oil and gas pipelines into the ground during construction.
However, the new slings were used to set water lines into the ground.
The company says the slings were sold by its distributor, Proline Pipe
Equipment. BLP is divided into three divisions: Bishop Lifting Products
Inc., BLP Services and BLP Solutions. Since 1998 the services division
has provided offshore and land-based inspection, testing, maintenance,
repair, modernization, on-site staffing and lift specialist consulting.
The BLP Solutions division features an in-house engineering team
equipped to employ the latest design technologies and fabrication techniques to produce custom-lifting devices. 800-972-1041,
