Founded in 1958 as Certified Slings and Supply, the business has grown to include Bubba Off-Road Recovery Gear, Florida Wire & Rigging Supply, Secured Global, and Academy Training Center. The company serves customers across Florida, the USA and internationally.

Worswick Group marks Bishop’s eleventh acquisition since 2012 and is the fourth add-on acquisition since Altamont acquired the platform in February 2022.

This acquisition of companies is in line with Bishop’s ongoing strategy to enhance its offerings and scale in order to become the country’s leading provider of lifting products and services.

“We’re excited to continue our growth through this acquisition of a company that contributes great people and culture, as well as establish a physical presence in the Florida market,” said Harold King, president of Bishop Lifting.
