In 1983 Eric McCallum got fired from his job so, like many accidental entrepreneurs, he started his own company: Arctic Wire Rope. Over the last 35 years, he has really tried to focus on giving superior service, having great product knowledge and a large inventory. Arctic Wire Rope has steadily added new services and products.
Arctic Wire Rope has been the main rigging supplier to Alaska’s vast North Slope & Cook Inlet oil fields ever since. They make lifting slings and bridles of every kind; wire rope, chain, Nylon web, polyester round and Dyneema high-performance rope. In 2006 they received the Alaska Manufacturer of the Year award.
