When it comes to safety, you can never be too careful. The good news is that at Kennedy Wire Rope and Sling Company, we bring plenty of experience to the table in keeping people safe on the job. We offer a vast selection of slings, wire rope, cordage, and other fall protection equipment. 

In fact, our company has been around since 1979 — four decades now! — and in that time we’ve developed a reputation for being the team to turn to when companies want to keep their employees safe on the job. Needless to say, the demands of the industries we serve have grown drastically over the last 40 years and we’ve risen to meet those needs at every step of the way. 

After all, when you need to ensure that your employees have everything they need to feel comfortable, confident, and safe, it just makes sense to turn to the team who brings so much experience to the table. 

Rising to the Challenge Since the Beginning

At Kennedy Wire Rope and Sling Company, we’ve grown quite a bit since we first started our business. It’s hard to believe now, but when we opened our doors for the first time, we had eight employees and a small 500 square foot space that we rented. Over the years, we’ve grown quite a bit in order to accommodate the needs of our clients. As of right now, our team has grown substantially and we now require an 80,000 square foot building to house all of our equipment, conduct inspections and repairs, and hold safety seminars.

In other words, our goal is to take the best possible care of our customers and we’ll always rise to the occasion of offering the best customer service, the best products, and the best prices. It’s as simple as that. We believe that it’s not necessary to sacrifice quality to get a great deal and that idea serves as the backbone of our business. Because quality equipment is absolutely vital to safety on the jobsite, we ensure that all of our products are the best of the best, but without a massive price tag. This ensures that businesses are able to keep their employees safe without the need to spend an arm and a leg. It doesn’t get much better than that!

How Can We Keep Your Company Safer?

Whether it’s chain slings, synthetic slings, and wire rope slings or rigging hardware, heavy lifting equipment, and chain falls, if you need to ensure that the equipment you use on the job is safe, we’d love to help. We offer inspection and repair services designed to maximize safety and efficiency. Because this equipment should be cared for and repaired on a regular basis, our team offers repair and maintenance work for a variety of different pieces of equipment. We go through everything, ensuring that it all looks great by utilizing our own criteria in addition to those set forth by OSHA, ASME, and API. 

We can even come to you for an inspection at your request.

One of our most popular services is our safety seminars. During these events, we’ll cover a variety of different topics including safe rigging practices, wire rope applications, sling inspection procedures, hand signals, and more. We even follow everything up with a period of time dedicated to answering any questions our guests have. At the end of the day, we believe that this is one of our most valuable services because it acts as a wonderful overview for everything employers and employees need to know in order to be as safe as possible at the jobsite.
