Larry Postelwait

The Tulsa, Oklahoma, based Crosby Group, a global leader in accessories for lifting and material handling applications, has announced that Larry Postelwait is retiring after more than 40 years with the company. He has led the organization for the past 25 years as its President and CEO, and in that time has established the company as the standard for innovation, quality, and performance across the many industries that it serves.

Jason Struthers has been named as his replacement effective immediately, but Mr. Postelwait will be staying on board for a period to ensure a smooth transition. Mr. Struthers brings almost 20 years of global industrial manufacturing experience to The Crosby Group. His background includes sales, marketing and operational leadership roles at Parker Hannifin, IDEX Corporation, and most recently KOHLER Co., where he was the President of Kohler Power Systems.

Jason Struthers

Mr. Struthers earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as well as a Master of Business Administration degree from Ashland University. He currently resides in Manitowoc, WI, but will be relocating his family to Tulsa, OK.

“Jason has spent his entire career working within diversified industrial companies that highly value their distribution networks,” said Mr. Postelwait, outgoing President and CEO. “His hands-on experience in developing long-term relationships with distributors, which is one of Crosby Group’s most important attributes and founding principles, will serve the company well for years to come.”

With multiple facilities in North America and abroad, the Crosby Group manufactures premium accessories used in lifting and material handling applications for a wide range of industries ranging from oil and gas exploration to construction. The company, known for its uncompromising quality, premier customer service, and ‘world-class’ training programs, offers a broad range of products suitable for the most demanding of operating conditions. Products include wire rope clips, hooks, shackles, lifting clamps, hoist rings, overhaul balls, snatch blocks, crane blocks and sheaves.
