Slings, Hoists & Rigging Training
All Alabama Sling Center trainers have been accredited by our company through training by a third party training company (Industrial Training International, Inc.), Mazzella Companies’ internal Train the Trainer program, and are trained on OSHA and ASME standards. We issue certificates following program completion.

Fall Protection Products
Alabama Sling Center carries a complete line of fall protection products and systems—lanyards, rope grabs and quality harnesses. These products meet ANSI regulations, as well as EN and Canadian codes.
We can customize most products for specific customer needs. Harnesses may also be purchased with customer designated webbing colors and even embroidered
with your company logo (minimum order does apply). Contact your Lifting Specialist for more details.
We also carry D-ring extenders, individual shock packs, snap hooks, carabiners and rollgate hooks, roofer kits, rebar assemblies, anchorages and retrieval systems …
just to name a few.

Alabama Sling Center works with Progressive Crane (A Mazzella Company) to manufacture world-class overhead cranes. We engineer and build custom solutions ranging from light-duty economical cranes to large-capacity high-duty cycle cranes with welded plate-box girders.
Our work is done in full compliance with CMAA, NEC, OSHA and ASME standards. We have extensive electrical capability, as well as AWS certified welders.
We provide in-house engineering and can also furnish PE (Professional Engineer) stamped drawings and calculations. All drawings are done in SolidWorks—this reduces calculation time and increases productivity, which saves our customers money.
Also, being electronic, the calculations and drawings may be e-mailed to further save time. This is an ideal solution for companies with fabrication capabilities, but with no in-house engineering.
We believe it’s logical that the engineers who design your crane also design your runway structure. Our engineers utilize SolidWorks to create your runway designs, in strict accordance with CMAA, ANSI, Uniform Building Code, AISC and American Welding Institute standards and practices.
The same rugged quality that goes into our cranes is applied to our runway structures. In many cases, the same craftsmen and welders who fabricate your crane also produce your runway structure.
A correctly installed runway structure ensures a smooth-running crane system. Our installers are runway experts with experience established over many years and hundreds of installations. They have developed unique skills and special tools to make installations quick and easy.

» Overhead Crane & Hoist Service
We have more than 60 years of field application experience and in-house manufacturing. This has earned us the reputation as a leader in the design and development of custom engineered below-the-hook lifting devices and lifting attachments for use with all types of cranes.
Our participation on the ASME B30.20 Subcommittee (that governs manufacturing, inspection, marking, testing, maintenance and operation of the below-the-hook lifting devices) sets us apart from our competition. On-staff engineering and our commitment to ISO 9001: 2008 guides us to continued success in quality products and processes.
Our products range from a common lift beam to an engineered special 150 lbs. engine line lifter to a 330 ton electric furnace lifter.
Repairs, Inspections & Recertification of Below-The-Hook Lifting Devices
We offer complete, in-house inspections and repairs of below-the-hook lifting devices. Certified Inspectors, along with our Engineering Department, perform detailed analysis. Repaired or rebuilt units provide significant cost savings. We also can provide FEA (Finite Element Analysis) reports and reverse engineering options on customers' lifting devices. Customers can send in a unit, enabling Engineering to measure and model the unit in SolidWorks and run FEA analysis that determines the safe working load.
