By Hannah Sundermeyer18 April 2023
Bishop Lifting, a portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners, has acquired General Work Products, which provides customers across the country with access to safety-critical cordage, rope and fall protection products. General Work Products marks Bishop’s twelfth acquisition since 2012 and is the fifth add-on acquisition since Altamont acquired the platform in February 2022.
“We’re excited to continue our track record of highly acquisitive growth with General Work Products, expanding both our core solution offering and our global sourcing and nationwide distribution capabilities,” said Harold King, president, Bishop Lifting. “General Work Products greatly expands our private label cordage, safety and fall protection offerings while continuing to build out our national footprint to serve customers locally with our deep industry knowledge and high-quality products.”
Post-acquisition, General Work Products will keep its branding and its teams across their five existing locations in California, Texas, Louisiana and New York.
“Bishop Lifting is a great home for our team and the business we’ve built over three decades,” said Greg Palmer, founder of General Work Products. “I am excited to continue to work with Bishop to expand and grow the business, along with developing new and innovative products to serve the safety-critical needs of our collective customers.”
