Delta Rigging Adds On

Delta Rigging & Tools, a Lake Jackson, Texas-based provider of lifting products and services for the domestic lifting equipment and rigging industry, has acquired D&M Wire Rope, a provider of wire rope and rigging throughout Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. No financial terms were disclosed. Delta Rigging was acquired last summer by Austin Ventures.



Delta Rigging & Tools (Delta Rigging), the nation’s leading provider of wire rope, rigging and lifting equipment, today announced the acquisition of D&M Wire Rope.  The acquisition of D&M establishes Delta Rigging as a leading provider of wire rope and rigging throughout Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.  The acquisition is the seventh in the last three years by Delta Rigging.


D&M Wire Rope is based in Grand Junction, Colorado, and specializes in the fabrication and distribution of chain, wire rope, wire rope slings, synthetic slings, and rigging hardware.  D&M is one of the largest tire chains distributors in the Rocky Mountain area.  D&M also has testing and certification capabilities for various types of rigging and lifting products.  D&M is the leading rigging operation in the Rocky Mountain region focused primarily on the mining and land-based oil and gas drilling industries.  D&M employs 35 full-time employees and all are expected to remain with the company.


“D&M will allow Delta Rigging to expand its footprint from the Gulf Coast region into the Rocky Mountains and more efficiently serve the mining and land-based oil and gas markets.  We are very confident that Jim Davis, the founder of D&M Wire Rope, and his highly-trained group of employees will make a significant contribution to our growth plans,” said Kevin P. Rodgers, CEO of Delta Rigging.


“Delta Rigging is highly regarded in the wire rope and rigging industry, and we are excited to be their partner in becoming the one-stop resource for mining customers, drilling companies, contractors and large industrial users of rigging and lifting products,” said Mr. Davis, Founder & CEO of D&M Wire Rope.


Delta Rigging has successfully executed a strategy of acquiring and integrating regional market leaders to create a scalable, industry-leading platform.
