Bishop Lifting Products Opens New Branch in Odessa, Texas

Fourth Expansion for Houston-Based Wire Rope and Rigging Products Specialist

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 17, 2009) - Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. (BLP), a leader in the crane and rigging products industry, recently purchased the Bob O. Giddens company, also known as Bobcat Oilfield Wholesalers, in Odessa, Texas on 402 West 1st Street. Bobcat Oilfield Wholesalers specializes in Crosby, McKissick, and Lebus fittings for wire rope and chain, as well as valves, gauges, and other various oilfield supplies in the Permian Basin.

This is BLP's forth branch expansion in the past four years with locations in Rock Springs, Wyoming; Beaumont, Texas; New Iberia, Louisiana; and now Odessa, TX. The company is a leading manufacturer and distributor of services, products and solutions for crane, rigging, and oilfield applications.

Jeff Bishop, President of Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. headquartered in Houston, TX, noted, "We wanted to have a branch in the Permian Basin for quite a while, especially to service existing customers who own our MaxiRider personnel lifting hoist used on drilling rigs. When an opportunity to purchase and existing rigging products company came up, we jumped at it."
