In the mid 1960’s, Joe Sumner was the worldwide general foreman for the Sam P. Wallace Co, a large US mechanical contractor, and he realized that there was a great need for good welding tools and lifting equipment to make the job of installing pipe easier and safer. Joe then designed and fabricated his own equipment and used them on Wallace jobs. The results far exceeded his expectations. With Joe’s tools, jobs were being completed well before scheduled completion dates and way under budget. From this success, Joe started Sumner Manufacturing based on his first hand knowledge of what was required in the field. Demand for Sumner equipment spread across the country and the range of Sumner products grew as well. Today, Sumner tools are used daily in over 50 countries, including branches in Canada, the UK and The Netherlands, and by LGH. While Sumner is recognized as the leader in pipe handling equipment, their product range includes equipment for a wide variety of contractors. All Sumner products are built with the concept of providing safe, common sense tools.
