Chant Engineering Celebrates 50th Anniversary

For five decades, Chant Engineering Co. Inc. has been considered an industry leader and has successfully designed and manufactured quality testing machinery for the wire rope and rigging industry.

Founded in 1970 by L. James Chant, Chant is excited to celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2020. “We are extremely proud of our staff, our customers, and all the accomplishments our company has contributed to the rigging industry over the last fifty years. Our testing and reeling machinery serves customers in every branch of the military and customers worldwide. Sadly, we lost my father, our founder, in 2017. Until that time, we had three generations of family members working at Chant; my father Jim, my two sons, Mason and Andrew, and myself,” said Phil Chant, President of Chant Engineering. “This monumental event allows us to celebrate and share our story of 50 Years of Excellence and our continued commitment to our customers,” said Christi Chambers, Marketing Coordinator for Chant.

Chant products are made in the U.S.A. in their New Britain, PA facility. Chant has machinery in the marketplace still operational nearly 30 years later. Chant is recognized for its heavy-duty machinery which is designed and built to last.

“In addition to our machinery, we have always been ahead of the curve with software and technology. When we initially introduced our DataTEST™ data acquisition software, it was so advanced, the companies we introduced it to were apprehensive to use it. Now it is the “go to” software for most rigging shops.”, said Chant.
