Mr. Tway was pleased to develop this relationship based on the range of the product line, the high-quality products, and an unmatched reputation for customer service.

Wire rope has been in our blood four generations now, and we are very proud of that heritage. Joseph R. Tway sold wire rope for The MacWhyte Company from the mid 20’s thru the early 40’s. Tway Lifting Products has moved tens of millions of feet of rope since we opened the doors in 1945 and much of that had the MacWhyte brand. In the mid 80’s the MacWhyte Company was rolled into Wire Rope Corporation of America, now Wireco World Group. We have maintained the strong ties with Wireco over the years and continue to promote the strength, durability and dealer support of the Wireco/Union brand.


Not all innovations can make a permanent mark on an industry, Grabiq is an exception to the rule. For nearly 30 years, the Grabiq system has changed the way chain slings are assembled and used in America. This Swedish system of specialized components and attachments offers a new perspective on couplers, adjustable master links and hooks with increased strength and function. We are proud to offer this innovative solution and back it up with complimentary proof load testing and certification on all chains we assemble.


Tway Lifting Products affiliation with Tractel/Griphoist began in the early 60’s with the building of parking decks in the Indianapolis area. In 1983 when the Hoosier Dome was constructed in Indianapolis, Tractel hoists were used by Birdair Structures to stretch the dome roof skin into place. Tractel Griphoists were again used to pull the Moveable Wall into position when Uni-Systems Inc built that phase of Lucas Oil Stadium. The same Tractel hoists then traveled to Arlington Texas for construction work on The Cowboy’s Stadium. Tractel quality and workmanship has proven itself around United States, and Tway Lifting Products is honored to be their dealer.
