INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Tway Company, Inc. has produced its first 2-inch diameter wire rope sling in Indianapolis with an ultimate strength of 370,000 pounds. Wire rope slings have been used in manufacturing and construction to lift machinery and building products, as well as in steel mill operations, for over a century. Providing the highest quality product of this size required The Tway Company to make significant investments in personnel, capital equipment and training at their Indiana location. The 24,000 square foot plant manufactures certified lifting equipment from USA-made raw materials by The Crosby Group, WireCo, Loos & Co., Bridon, and Bethlehem Wire Rope.
“Building a wire rope products plant in Indiana strengthened our position with the industrial sector across the Midwest and brings another manufactured product to the state,” says Peter Hansen, President and CEO. “There are few plants in the country capable of producing lifting gear this heavy, same day, and we are excited to be among the best.”
