Our Certifications



TUF-TUG was founded in 1984 with the mission of designing and manufacturing premium rigging and safety gear of the highest quality. With this commitment to quality driving company policy, TUF-TUG has become the industry leader in the supply of fall protection and rigging gear.

Through advancements in new, innovative product categories including Safe-Climb systems, prosperity turned into dramatic growth with the economic boom of the mid-1990’s and TUF-TUG was successful in developing alliances with key industry OEM’s and Contract Manufacturers. Telecommunications and Utility industries spurred this growth which included mass global tower development.

Since this time, TUF-TUG has been able to leverage industry expansion to continue to broaden its product offering for the wind, oil & gas, agriculture and transportation industries.

Today, TUF-TUG products continue to be trusted by global organizations and end users who seek high-quality products that exceed their expectations for performance, safety and durability.
