Bishop Lifting Products is proud to announce the retirement of one of our outside salesman, Doug Wetzel. Doug made his career in the wire rope and rigging industry.

After moving to Houston in 1981 from Cleveland, he started work for Otis Dufrene with SW Sling Center. After about 5 years and multiple layoffs due to the oil and gas downturn in Houston, he moved to Southwest Wire Rope in 1986. After 17 years with Southwest Wire Rope, Doug decided to explore other opportunities within the industry. He met with David Bishop and the rest is history.

Doug has been with Bishop Lifting Products for 17 years and has been an extremely valuable asset to the sales team. Doug Wetzel said “I’ve sold miles and miles of wire rope… High Performance boom and hoist ropes, to standard drill lines, to barge pre-slinging ropes. When I started there were only 6x26, 6x36 & 19x7 non-rotating. Man has wire rope come along easy since then!” Harold King, current President of Bishop Lifting, says “I remember giving Doug his first tour of the Bishop facility on Harris drive. He wouldn’t agree to work for BLP until he saw the facility!

Your family at Bishop Lifting is going to miss you Doug. Happy birding and enjoy retirement!
