Local 597 Chicago Pipefitters Union Partners with LGH

The Local 597 Pipefitters Union training facility in Chicago and Lifting Gear Hire Corp. (LGH) have a formed new partnership. The partnership outlines an annual rental contract pilot program which secures rigging for the Local 597 Pipefitter Union’s advanced industrial rigging classes until the end of 2012. In addition, LGH has the privilege of having their logo permanently affixed to the wall at the Local 597 Pipefitters Union training facility. The logo defines the partnership between LGH, the UA and the Local 597 Pipefitters Union while increasing daily exposure to approximately 7,000 pipefitters that train at the center.

LGH is excited to work with the Local 597 Pipefitters Union in Chicago. Two of the instructors at the Local 597 Pipefitters Union training facility had nothing but good things to say about LGH regarding their equipment, support staff and overall business model. When asked why they chose LGH as their preferred vendor, they responded, “You guys are the professionals and we rely on your expertise. We want to lead by example, so it’s our goal to teach our apprentices safe rigging practices. After all, they are the future of our trade.”
