General Work Products marks Bishop’s 12th acquisition since 2012.

General Work Products will keep its branding and its teams across its five existing locations in California, Texas, Louisiana, and New York.

“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 of 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.”
