Modulift has named I&I Sling Inc. as its newest North American distributor.

The appointment gives the manufacturer of below-the-hook equipment comprehensive coverage of the eastern U.S. through I&I Sling facilities in Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The agreement aligns Modulift with a lifting equipment powerhouse, boosting the outreach of its spreader beams and other equipment through a company that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in the rigging business. I&I Sling is commonly associated with its Slingmax Rigging Solutions brand.

As part of the agreement, I&I will stock the full range of Modulift equipment up to MOD 110H from the heavy-lift spreader beam series.

Sarah Spivey, managing director of Modulift, said: “Once we got taking about partnering, it was quickly apparent to both parties that this could be a very fruitful relationship. Thomas De Soo [director], Tim Shears [purchasing manager], and I explored the U.S. market and implemented a strategy through which we can supply our range of below-the-hook equipment to the myriad of industries and applications I&I engages with on a weekly basis.”

De Soo said: “We are delighted to introduce Modulift’s products to our comprehensive rigging offering. We choose our suppliers carefully and work only with those who offer the best product, availability, expertise, and customer support.”

Spivey said the arrangement ensures Modulift always has stock available locally for customers.
