Southern International Professional Engineering (SIPE) is dedicated to the design, manufacturing, service and support for standard below-the-hook lifters, custom lift devices & material handling equipment. We were founded and are currently managed by licensed, professional engineers with over 40 years experience. This engineering focus forms the core of our business. An equally experienced sales, service and manufacturing team rounds out our lineup to ensure that our customer’s specifications and requirements are successfully translated into safe, functional, quality products. We proudly comply with the Presidential Executive Order and Federal Trade Commission requirements for the “Produced in the United States” designation.

Southern International Professional Engineering is owned by Frederick Sills, 38 year veteran serving from Vietnam to the 2nd Gulf War. He has accomplished 4 Master's degrees and 4 Bachelor's degrees in different fields as well has published many papers for technology and engineering.

Producing superior lifting devices and designs by experienced American Craftsmen and Professional Engineers, supported by a responsive, friendly and accessible customer service team is who we are. Our product potential and capabilities in the Lifting, Crane and Rigging Industry is extensive.

SIPE also offers a full range of lifting related engineering support services which include Civil/Mechanical/Structural Analysis & Designs with Florida/Georgia P.E. Seal, Site Surveys and Professional Engineering Reports, site services, P.E. guidance and expert witness for legal litigation.

Southern International Professional Engineering sells products through a knowledgeable and dedicated network of Distributors. We are keenly aware that our Distributor Partners have long standing relationships with their customers and are committed to serving them. We also share this passion and do everything possible to protect and enhance our Distributors reputations. SIPE manufactures some of the best equipment in the industry, however, the benefits of a quality product can be diminished by the inability to deliver them in a timely manner.

Getting a safe, reliable, quality lifting tool in your customer’s hands quickly is our mission.

This process begins by providing fast quotes and ends in delivering products expeditiously as promised. We understand that response time wins orders and delivery time wins customers!
