CLEVELAND, OH – Mazzella Companies is pleased to announce the acquisition of Page Wire Rope & Slings, Inc. This acquisition further strengthens Mazzella’s footprint in the Gulf Coast—specifically in Louisiana and Texas.

In 1965, A.B. Page, Sr. started Page Wire Rope & Slings, Inc. out of his backyard to provide hand-spliced slings, hardware, spooled reels of wire rope, and the long splicing of sand lines for oil field swab trucks. Since then, the company has expanded to three locations in Lafayette, LA; Shreveport, LA; and Pleasanton, TX and continues as a full-service rigging supplier dedicated to the oil field. Effective immediately, Page Wire Rope & Slings, Inc. will operate as Mazzella Page Wire Rope. Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.

“I welcome our newest team members from Page Wire Rope into the Mazzella organization. We’re excited about the great reputation built by the four generations of the Page family during their 50+ years in business. Both Page Wire Rope and Mazzella are committed to providing the highest-quality products, delivering excellent service, and sharing our expertise with our customers across all industries. Mazzella Page Wire Rope will carry on and deliver on the high level of service that their customers and team members have come to expect,” says Tony Mazzella, CEO of Mazzella Companies.

This acquisition provides Mazzella with three additional strategic locations in Louisiana and Texas and complements their existing Gulf Coast and Southeastern U.S. locations in Bartow, FL; Lakeland, FL; Mobile, AL; Prairieville, LA; and Dallas / Ft. Worth, TX.

“Page Wire Rope & Slings, Inc. is excited about joining the Mazzella team. We (Don Page, Jacob Page, Kevin Page, Kathy Laviolette, and Carol Page) look forward to the growth of Page Wire Rope and expanding our breadth of product and services in the Lafayette and Shreveport, LA areas, as well as Pleasanton, TX.
