Nik Wallenda, one of the most famous high wire walkers in the world, will be available in the Ulven Companies booth 1909 on Tuesday May 5th from 9:00am-1:00pm to sign autographs during the Offshore Technology Conference. The conference is designed to get energy professionals together to exchange ideas and opinions with the purpose of enhancing overall technical knowledge in the industry. The conference will be held May 4-7th in Houston, Texas.
Nik Wallenda is an American acrobat, aerialist, daredevil, high wire artist, and author best known for his high wire performances over such places as the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and several skyscrapers–most without a safety net. Wallenda was initially drawn to The Ulven Companies because of their high quality, high strength, USA-made products needed for his stunts, and the relationship grew from that point.
Celena Moses, Government and Rigging Sales Manager at The Ulven Companies, said, “We are looking to gain insight into what the industry is in need of that is not available at this time. We see this year’s OTC conference as an opportunity to not only celebrate our friend Nik, but also to expand our reach into the industry.

The Ulven Companies now comprise a group of four different American companies and are privately held.
