December Wire Rope News

Note from the Editor

As we close out another year and get ready to start anew, we here at Wire Rope News & Sling Technology want to wish all our readers and advertisers a happy holiday and a great new year!

The new feature “Company Spotlight”, has sparked quite an interest and as each new entry is published in the coming issues, we hope it (along with the free online version) helps in getting the participating advertisers more recognition and boosted sales!

This month’s Spotlight is on page 12. Please contact us at info@wireropenews.com for further information and affordable pricing.

I should also remind everyone that we are now taking submissions for the yearly Suppliers Directory. You can get all the information you need from the forms printed in this issue on pages 65-68. Or get the forms and information you need on our Contact page
