Safety | Reliability | Service

Since Olsen Chain and Cable started its operation in 1950, we have been the premier supplier of overhead lifting equipment. Our customers have come to trust the reliable products and broad industry expertise they find with us.

Our founder, Gene Olsen, was an ironworker from the Twin Cities who started splicing wire rope slings in his garage. He sold these slings to local contractors and construction companies. As the area’s construction industry grew, so did his business. And now, nearly 70 years later, we continue to grow. And we continue to provide exceptional, American-made overhead lifting equipment to our customers, with the safety, reliability, and service they depend on.
