Knight Equipment Company, Inc.
Knight Equipment Company, Inc. was founded in 1945 by Aubrey Knight, after working for Broderick & Bascom Rope Company since 1927. His son, R.J. Knight, worked along side his father until, in December 1975, he purchased and incorporated the business from his father. Knight Equipment Company, Inc. continues under that leadership today. Knight Equipment Company has had a continued growth, not only in the wire rope field, but in the ski industry as well. RJ, along with his sons, Justin and Jason, does splicing, inspections, and electromagnetic inspections at the ski areas, nationwide, as well as worldwide. Some of the products carried by Knight Equipment Company, Inc. are wire rope, wire rope fittings, M.S. Slings and H.T. Slings, chain slings, chain fittings, and nylon slings. We also make wire rope and chain assemblies for construction. We do custom wire rope splicing, such as the endless drive cables used by the Amusement Industry for their rides and endless cables used by the Ski Industry.
