The Company:

The Superior-Lidgerwood-Mundy Corporation (SLM) is the result of the combining of three companies who were engaged in similar activities. Over time, Lidgerwood purchased the Superior Iron Works of Superior, Wisconsin and Mundy Hoisting of Newark, NJ. Now all manufacturing and administrative activities of Superior-Lidgerwood-Mundy are accomplished at Superior, Wisconsin, which has over 65,000 sq ft of manufacturing and warehouse space. Today, SLM has evolved into a highly diversified small business engaged in the manufacture of hoists, winches, capstans, and a wide array of contract manufacturing of mechanical sub-assemblies and equipment. This allows a unique combination of design, fabrication, machining, assembly, and painting services all under one roof. SLM’s historical commitment to the advancement of mechanical design and manufacturing is well documented. It continues today as the Company embraces and integrates the most advanced automated design techniques and manufacturing processes in support of its clients. SLM stands ready to meet the demands of the 21st Century, and its clients, through the appropriate utilization of technology and human ingenuity. The firm has 55 employees. The firm’s primary products are S-Series Winches and Hoists, M-Series Capstans M-Series Gypsy Winches, USACE custom built hoists and winches and Military grade winches and pumps.
