Skookum to Create New RapidShip Program

Skookum is proud to announce the launch of their R-series RapidShip in stock program. Having started in mid-February, the company now offers their “R”-series Utili-Sheave Blocks from fully stocked inventory on a same-day shipment basis. Skookum is now one of the few companies in the United States to offer this type of accelerated product delivery program. Skookum recognized the needs of their customers to reduce the lead-times on these items, which can add time and expense to their jobs and decrease their bottom line.

The “R”-Series has both a wide throat and a Utili-Sheave. The wide throat makes it much easier to pull a variety of line, connecting links or oversized applications, making them the “blocks of choice” for operators of heavy-duty work. They can work loads from 5-9 tons and are made of high-strength, manganese steel. They are built to be lightweight while still maintaining a big reserve of strength and incredible ruggedness.

Celena Moses, Government and Rigging Sales Manager at Skookum, said “This new service will allow our customers to shave valuable time off their projects without compromising on quality. They will have their product in-hand immediately.”

Founded in 1890 as a family business, Skookum was purchased by the Ulven family in 1986. Located in Hubbard, Oregon, the company’s comprehensive block, fairlead, sheave, hook, and alloy forging lines have met the challenges of the most demanding applications around the world. Skookum has proudly taken part in the shaping of American industry with current markets in construction, defense, mining, utility, maritime, oil and gas energy, and offshore. Skookum is a part of The Ulven Companies, which now comprises a group of four privately held American companies.
