Jergens Achieves Global Standards Benchmark Through Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) Membership Certification

Posted on August 6, 2015


Jergens, Inc. announces its membership to the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). An association dedicated to conformity to safety and standards for lifting, LEEA is established across the globe as the leading authoritative body for all who work in the industry, from design, manufacture, refurbishment, repair, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.

“This is an important accomplishment for Jergens, as the (LEEA) membership certifies us (Jergens) and validates our expertise in providing a range of lifting products,” says Jergens General Manager Bob Rubenstahl. “The certification is pretty exclusive, since Jergens is one out of only sixteen companies in the US receive it (certification) for their lifting devices,” Rubentsahl continues.

The audit process is extensive, and encompasses a strict process that not only certifies products, but also employees, processes and facilities. To pass – as Jergens did with compliments by the auditing team – is proof positive of a well-run, quality and capable organization. The global stamp of approval is a quality benchmark that applies to North America and throughout the world, and sets Jergens apart from so many other manufacturers.

“The expectation is to focus on spreading our quality Jergens lifting products into Europe and beyond,” says Rubenstahl. The product family encompasses the newly-introduced Lift Check™ center pull hoist rings with visual (tension) indication, and a range of lifting accessories. Among those are stainless steel or alloy steel swivel / center pull, side pull, extended SP2000 side pull, side swivel, eyebolts, shoulder bolts and lift ring products.
