Lift Happily Ever After: Brandon Verret + Crosby Shackles

Posted by Crosby on Oct 23, 2018 9:32:08 PM

  1. How long have you been in the industry? - I have been in the crane/lifting and hoisting business for about 22 years.
  2. What do you like most about this industry? - I have always been amazed of what cranes and rigging can lift. I have a passion for safe lifting and passionately inform others of this through the industry committees I am part of.
  3. How did you come about lifting Crosby shackles? - We use Crosby shackles in many aspects of our operation. I was lucky enough to have a few donated to me, so I brought them home to use as lifting tools. A big part of my job duties now is teaching and coaching with crane lifts and rigging as well as keeping up with various standards. While teaching, I always relate the human body to a crane in various scenarios. I have been competing in Amateur Scottish Highland games (Strength Competition) since 2006 and did my last one in 2013. During my years of competing, I use various techniques and ideas to develop my strength. Lifting odd objects is very effective for this. Thus, heavy shackles work great as well as stones, kegs, etc.
  4. Why Crosby? - Crosby makes an excellent shackle, and they have an excellent reputation.

“I’ve been familiar with Crosby shackles for the 22 years of my career thus far. Never had one of the shackles fail on me yet.”

Meet the Crosby Rigging Expert: Colin Basinger

Colin has been in the lifting and rigging industry for over 30 years. After graduating from college with a business degree he started in sales, selling industrial lighting. It was a natural transition to move to rigging since he was always looking up.

Colin Basinger

Colin is our Vice President of Sales for Canada and is celebrating his 10th anniversary with Crosby this year. What he loves most about the industry is that it is infinitely changing. Each day brings a new challenge and new opportunity.

The lifting and rigging industry has given him the chance to go underground at an iron ore mine, 300 feet over center field at the Roger’s Centre (home of the Toronto Blue Jays) and all points in between. He has had the opportunity to see Crosby products in action all over Canada.

“It is a great feeling to sell and be associated with such a well-respected brand and quality product.”

To have the knowledgeable, and experienced technical team at Crosby behind him gives him the confidence to hit the road and promote such a strong, industry-leading brand.
