USA-headquartered Engineered Rigging has opened an office in Europe.

Carlo Karssen, director, is heading up the Engineered Rigging BV operation from an office in Almelo, Netherlands. Karssen has a background in heavy lifting and spent 15 years at Enerpac, previously Hydrospex, in Europe where he was chief engineer. After a year in another industry Karssen was approached by Christopher Cox, CEO at Engineered Rigging in the USA.
