[EDITOR’S NOTE]


Welcome to our May/June issue! We have an unusually broad range of subject matter to introduce here – in spite of all the disruption, there’s quite a lot going on around the industry! For starters, we wanted to gather and share leadership insight and perspective from companies that either operate in, or have a broad view of, the markets that drive demand for wire rope and rigging equipment. It’s our hope that knowing how they’re thinking will help those of you who manufacture and distribute rope and rigging clarify your perspective, and help you


recognize opportunities as they evolve. We thank these leaders for taking time to share their viewpoints, you can read what they shared with us in our Update on page 74. Next, on to Genoa, Italy. In 2018, Genoa saw the tragic collapse of the Morandi


Bridge, a longstanding landmark and a critical link in the port city’s infrastructure. And this year, Italy was among the countries most hard-hit by Covid-19. But on April 28th, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte visited the construction site for the replacement bridge as the final piece of the decking was installed. Read more about this remarkable triumph for Italy’s construction industry in our Lead Feature. In our Spotlight, we learn about RopeIQ, a new technology to help you manage wire


rope inspection. Te goal here is simple: help intensive users of wire rope implement ISO 4309:2017 more easily, and manage wire rope lifespan more optimally. We are always looking for new technology to share with you that may be helpful, and we thank Charles Gillespie for taking time to teach us about RopeIQ. On yet another note, not long ago we tripped across a new video podcast with a very catchy name: Tat’s Riggin’ Awesome! We reached out to hosts Pat Clark and Mike Walsh to understand what they’re trying to accomplish with this effort. Tey suggested that the easiest way for them to respond to our questions would be for me to appear on the show as a guest. Fair enough! You can read some of what Pat had to say about the show’s purpose in our Second Feature, and hear our entire conversation in an upcoming episode of Tat’s Riggin’ Awesome! Finally, there are some new items, and lots of new prices, in our Catalog. Check those


out here or on our website, and thank you for supporting our Members and Advertisers. As always, we’d be delighted to share your story with our readers in an upcoming issue.


Let me know what you’re working on and we can get started today! Best Regards,
