“From the moment I started at Crosby, I realized this was a very special company. The passion shared by all its employees from the manufacturing process, quality control, engineering, marketing, and our highly respected customer service team. I would be remiss not to mention our world class distribution network, who support Crosby and its brand leading products in their respective markets. It’s a privilege working alongside such knowledgeable customers every day.” – Paul DeMattie

“When you work for the market leader, you get a unique opportunity to see projects being built from the ground level. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with key end users of our products on very iconic and once in a lifetime projects. Whether it was the building of the new Freedom Tower, World Trade Center Transportation Hub, the Tappan Zee Bridge, or the lifting of a 1,100-ton deckhouse for the new Zumwalt Naval Destroyer”.

Companies rely on Crosby to provide products that exceed the minimum standards required in the high-risk world of rigging. Fatigue ratings, ductility, and impact properties are crucial to real world applications. Quality rigging and application training should be obligatory to prevent any hazards or injuries.

Since the inception of Crosby training in 1991, over 400,000 individuals have attended a Crosby rigging seminar focused on proper application of rigging products.
