Bishop Lifting, a portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners, has completed the acquisition of Oceanside Equipment, a wholesale distributor of rigging and mooring products. Headquartered in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and with a location in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Oceanside was founded in 1990. 

“The acquisition of Oceanside marks our first physical locations in Canada and continues our strategy to expand our core solution offerings and footprint to serve customers locally across North America,” said Harold King, CEO, Bishop Lifting. “Oceanside has strong customer relationships across Canada, and I am excited to welcome the entire team to the Bishop family.”

Oceanside marks Bishop’s fourteenth acquisition since 2012 and is the seventh add-on acquisition since Altamont’s investment.
