At Mazzella Lifting Technologies, we provide great lifting solutions. We offer all styles of slings, cranes, hoists, engineered lifting devices along with the training and in field inspection and repair services that support our products. Some of the major market segments we serve are: Steel, Construction, Energy, Vehicle and Durable Goods.
Since our founding almost 60 years ago, the Mazzella brand has been uncompromising. Our purpose is to instill confidence and comfort in every customer interaction. What does that mean? It means that we provide reliable products and services, a highly responsive, knowledgeable team to support our offerings and the training to help ensure compliance of OSHA and ASME standards. That's what you can expect from us and that's what we expect from ourselves.
It is useful to understand where you've been before deciding where you want to go. Our history has served as a foundation of who we are, what we believe and what we value. Back in 1954, James Mazzella formed a business by providing the most basic of lifting devices; wire rope slings that were braided by hand. It wasn't the cleanest and certainly not the easiest job around - but it was fundamental to the industry. This gut-level standard of performance defined the company in 1954 and it defines the company to this day. From the shop floor to the front office, every employee knows and understands the no-excuses, customer-first mentality that is threaded throughout the company. In every customer interaction, we instill confidence and comfort.
The company has grown organically through the decades by expanding its product offerings and by entering new markets. It has done so by securing new customers and nurturing those historic relationships. And it has grown by acquisition.
In the early 1990s, Mazzella purchased the Cleveland branch of William S. Adler, and late in the decade, the company acquired Crane Builders of America and Mentor Lift Hooks. In April of 2005, Mazzella acquired Detroit Wire Rope and in October 2005 acquired Progressive Crane Co. In addition to expanding the company's product offerings, these strategic actions gave the company greater market access to the Southeastern United States.
In July 2011, Mazzella acquired the Indusco Group. This has greatly expanded our geographical
reach--Indusco consists of a network of rigging shops located along the East Coast and in
the South. This network includes Indusco Wire Rope & Supplies, J. Henry Holland Corp.,
Alabama Sling Center and Tennessee Sling Center. This acquisition makes us one of the largest
independently-owned companies in the overhead lifting and rigging industries.
Quality & Safety
Quality and Safety are cornerstones of our success... Product quality and operating safety go hand in hand. James Mazzella recognized that fact when he invented the Mazzella 7-Part wire rope sling, as well as, three other slings that improved ease of use and increased lifting performance and safety. This quality-first manufacturing mindset led the company to being one of the only rigging shops with ISO 9002 certification in 1994. That will continue and be the subject of re-doubled emphasis. The company has been a leader in safety training with all of its lifting specialists being certified to teach OSHA and ASME standards and we will increasingly partner with our customers to ensure the peace of mind that safety compliance brings.
Awards & Certifications
Our awards and certifications are testament to our commitment to instilling confidence and comfort in every customer interaction. The prestigious Weatherhead School of Business at Case Western Reserve University named Mazzella to its list of the top 100 fastest growing Northeastern Ohio companies in 2001, 2002 and again in 2007. In 2009 received Supplier of the Year award from AK Steel.
In short, Mazzella Lifting Technologies will define its future by leaning on its past. We will adhere to the values established by our founder. We will continue to deliver to our customers the highest quality products and right along with it, the necessary safety support programs. We will enhance our reputation as "The World's Most Complete Lifting Center."
