This month, members of I&I Sling’s management, sales and fabrication teams came together to celebrate the company’s semi-centennial near its headquarters in Aston, PA.
I&I Sling’s founder, and keynote speaker for the evening’s festivities, Dennis St. Germain Sr., provided plenty of laughs for everyone in attendance. As only he can do, Dennis delivered a detailed slideshow and added little known facts about previous and current employees, customers and products. Dennis went on to say, “I’m overwhelmed to see how far this company has grown from its humble beginnings. Since my retirement 6 years ago, my sons have continued this growth and I’m excited to see how far they will take it.”
I&I Sling Inc. was founded on September 25th, 1963 by Dennis St. Germain Sr. Five decades later, the company has grown to 100 employees with 6 full service rigging shops positioned from Massachusetts to Florida. The company is proud to be an original Slingmax® Dealer and holds the distinction of being the first sling manufacturer in the world to produce High Performance Fiber Roundslings. I&I Sling is also one of 10 Learning Centers for the Rigging Institute® LLC, a rigging training company headquartered in Knoxville, TN.
In 2008 Dennis retired from his day to day activities and named Scott St. Germain as I&I Sling’s new President/CEO and Dennis St. Germain, Jr. as COO. I&I Sling’s other top management includes Robert Capone (CFO) and Tom DeSoo (Director of Sales).
