Lifting gear distributor Certex UK has invested £150,000 (US$ 245,000) in Crosby products, including shackles and swivel hoist rings, to meet demand for same-day availability for offshore clients.
The purchasing deal will ensure wider product choice and improved delivery times for all offshore customers. The Crosby order is to be stored and distributed from Certex's own dedicated Offshore Division in Aberdeen, Scotland, and will be dispatched as soon as an order has been placed, Certex said.
Items available for same-day delivery include Crosby's shackles and eye bolts, ROV hardware, swivel hoist rings and snatch blocks, as well as Quic-Slings, made by Certex but incorporating approved Crosby components.
Following on from the Aberdeen initiative, Certex is now preparing to stock Crosby products in greater volume at 32 European locations in order to provide its same-day availability Europe-wide.
The lifting and safety equipment distributor has been supplying products made by Crosby for 30 years.
