David Sleightholm, BAC’s long-time Technical Director, is retiring in September of 2012, but will continue to contribute to BAC Technical Support and Innovation in a part-time role.  Sleightholm’s contributions to Bridon and the wire rope industry are numerous, and he was recognized for lifetime achievement at a recent standards meeting of The Wire Rope Technical Board (WRTB) in Golden, Colorado.

Chris Dugan, Managing Director of Bridon American Corporation (BAC), said of Sleightholm: “David has been an integral part of WRTB’s long history of promoting wire rope knowledge and assisting in the process of establishing technical and safety standards for military, governmental, and industrial use. It was especially fitting that he was recognized at his last meeting by a group of his engineering peers, whose respect and appreciation for his work and knowledge were evident.”

Bridon American, a global technology leader in wire rope manufacturing, is a member of the Bridon Group of companies whose products are sold in over 60 countries worldwide.

This  dedication  and  commitment make  the company’s  creed  of “The Difference is Bridon”  more  than   just  a  statement, but rather a strong principle reinforced daily throughout the Bridon community.
