Spider, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, will mark its 60th anniversary in 2007. The company was founded by two painting contractors with the launch of the first Spider basket as a more reliable way to get the work done and has since grown into 24 locations in North America – the largest swingstage rental, sale and service network specialized in man-rated access and related safety applications. With the new SC1000 traction hoist powering Spider’s rental fleet and the recent expansion into the San Diego market, Spider is growing to meet the needs of contractors everywhere.

Throughout 2007, Spider will be commemorating this anniversary under the “60 Years Strong” theme with a variety of customer promotions, special edition marketing materials and employee recognition events.

John Sotiroff, vice president of sales and distribution said, “Market leadership is not given to you based on longevity. Over the past 60 years, Spider has earned this distinction through our customers’ recognition that regardless of where their work takes them, the reliable equipment and service solutions we deliver drive a peace of mind that is rare in the contracting business. It is a trust and an ongoing commitment that we take very seriously. We will continue to build on the strength of our foundation to deliver the most reliable customer experience for the years to come.”
