Best Industrial Safety Supplies in Northern Louisiana

The Certex branch in West Monroe carries a wide variety of safety products including rigging equipment and lifting supplies. We also specialize in fall protection, providing not just the equipment you need, but comprehensive training for your workforce.

In addition to West Monroe, Certex also has Louisiana locations in Lafayette/Broussard, New Orleans/Harahan and Gray. Because of the special lifting and rigging requirements of Louisiana industries such as on-shore and off-shore drilling, Certex has developed a strong presence in the state.

Our West Monroe branch opened in 1974 and caters to several market types including paper mills, chemical plants, construction, oilfield, government and pipeline construction. Companies such as International Paper, Graphic Packaging, Scott Powerline, Ranger Steel Erectors, Poly Processing, and Georgia Pacific trust Certex with their safety needs.

This is just a sample of the industries we work with, as we provide safety products and services to companies across the state. No matter the size or scope of your project, our West Monroe team is ready to help you determine the products best suited for your job.

Certex USA

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.

Lifting Products and Rigging Supplies

Are you looking for quality lifting and rigging products? West Monroe and all our Louisiana locations carry a large selection of products such as lifting devices and specialty hooks. We 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. We have a diverse inventory of rigging hardware, including shackles, hooks, blocks, turnbuckles and much more.

Do you need wire rope and accessories? We have those too. 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 West Monroe to match the job requirements with the optimum combination of wire rope properties.


We 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. 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. If your job requires customized specifications, we can fabricate a sling to match your needs.

Sourcing from Top Vendors

At Certex, our products and services are focused on keeping Louisiana’s industrial workers safe on job sites. We procure products from top lifting vendors like Cooper Tools, Harrington Hoists and Straightpoint; and top fall protection vendors like 3M, Elk River and Yates.
