Best Industrial Equipment Supplier in Louisiana
The Certex branch in New Orleans/Harahan is the area’s top source for industrial equipment, rigging equipment and lifting supplies. We are distributors for Crosby, Bridon and Ecco.
In addition to New Orleans/Harahan, Certex also has Louisiana locations in Lafayette/Broussard, Gray, and West Monroe. Because of the special lifting and rigging needs of Louisiana industries such as on-shore and off-shore drilling, shipping, and construction, Certex has developed a strong presence in the state. Although we work with big names like Chevron and Shell, we supply equipment for businesses and projects both big and small across the state.
No matter the size or scope of your project, our New Orleans/Harahan team is ready to help you determine the products best suited for your job. You can count on the experienced staff, led by manager Kevin Theriot, to meet your safety needs.
Lifting and Rigging Equipment
Are you looking for quality lifting and rigging products? New Orleans/Harahan and all our Louisiana locations carry a large selection of products such as lifting devices and specialty hooks. We also carry several types of hoists and load limiters, including puller hoists, cyclone hand chain hoists and electric chain hoists. Our electric chain hoists made by Lodestar offer power, flexibility and several important safety features.
Do you need wire rope and accessories? We carry those too and specialize in crane wires. Wire rope strands are designed with various combinations of wires and wire sizes to produce the desired resistance to fatigue and abrasion. It’s important to select the correct wire rope needed for each job. You can rely on the knowledgeable staff at Certex New Orleans/Harahan to match the job requirements with the optimum combination of wire rope properties.
We also carry wire rope slings, wire mesh slings and nylon web slings. Wire rope slings, sometimes referred to as wire cable slings, are more robust and durable than nylon slings and have higher temperature limits. We carry slings with up to 3” wire rope. Wire mesh slings are used in industries where loads can be abrasive or tend to cut web slings. On the other hand, nylon web slings will not damage or scratch the surfaces of your products being lifted.
There are 34 Certex locations in the U.S. servicing 11 states from California to South Carolina. Certex is known for providing industries such as construction, mining, aerospace, utilities and on-shore/off-shore drilling with the equipment needed to ensure job sites and workers are safe. In addition, we are one of the few lifting product companies in the U.S. to offer Fall Protection and Rescue Training. We’ve been in business for over 50 years, which is why we’re a trusted source in Louisiana and around the country.
Fall Protection Equipment and Training
We offer a full curriculum of training on fall protection equipment to ensure the safety and productivity of your crew. We are members of the ITI Training network which provides world-class crane and rigging training to customers.
We can provide training right on your job site in Louisiana. We also have two state-of-the-art safety training facilities in Tucson AZ and Bakersfield CA. There your team will experience 8 hours of working with equipment from over 20 different manufacturers. The modern, climate-controlled environment creates ideal surroundings for learning and every course meets or exceeds applicable ANSI Z359, OSHA Sub Part M, CSA and Manufacturers requirements.
If sending your team to Tucson AZ or Bakersfield CA isn’t an option, take advantage of the training our Morgan City team can provide at your location. We also offer expert consulting, rescue plans and hazard analysis.
