US manufacturer of synthetic rope, Samson, has announced its partnership with United Offshore Services (UOS).

Following the agreement, UOS will offer Samson high-performance synthetic fibre ropes in Europe. In addition, Samson’s technical sales and engineering teams will work with UOS sales staff to support customers in Europe.

Craig Kelly, Samson director of international sales, said, “When we set out to find a partner to bring into our product offering, UOS was the perfect fit for us. Our business strategies and commitment to quality mirror one another. UOS is known in the industry for their expertise in fabrication and unique design. This is exactly what we were looking for to service the needs of our customers in the offshore oil and gas industry.”

Edwin Jefferies, United Offshore Services commercial manager, said, “Synthetic rope slings fill a special need in the market that can’t be met with steel wire rope. Bringing Samson into our product offering allows us to compete in a larger portion of the market. Samson is known for its fibre technology and development which complements how we approach the future market.”
