Gaylin, one of the largest Singapore-based multi-disciplinary specialist providers of rigging and lifting solutions to the global offshore oil and gas industry recently announced along with wire rope manufacturer, Kiswire, a new world record. Gaylin and Kiswire were recently awarded the Guiness Book of World Record for the thickest wire rope, measuring 175mm (6.88in) in diameter. The cable was manufactured by Kiswire Sdn Bhd and measured at their premises in Johor Bahru, Malaysia on May 22, 2015. Gaylin recently celebrated their 40th anniversary and the Guiness Book of World Record honor comes on the heels of Gaylin’s expansion and growth into both Malaysia and the Middle East.

Guinness World Records have been measuring and recording the world’s achievements since 1954 and the largest diameter wire rope is one of the 40,000 world records that are held on the Guinness World Records database. Of the thousands of applications, less than 5% become an official entry in their archive.
