Six Decades of Service

I&I Sling, Inc. has been servicing the crane and heavy lift industry for nearly 60 years. I&I Sling was founded by Dennis St. Germain, who started the business by splicing rope out of his garage in Folcroft, PA.  Years later Dennis invented the first high-performance roundsling in the United States, known as the Twin-Path™ Sling.

We continue our mission of focusing on customer service and innovation - whether we’re manufacturing trusted rigging products, designing custom lifting solutions, or bringing toolbox training sessions to a jobsite, we are proud to go above and beyond to help our clients succeed.
