MARINE: AMS Acquires Distribution Rights For Crosby
Recent Western Cape Business News
AFRICAN Maritime Services (AMS) has concluded an agreement with the Crosby group for the exclusive distribution in South Africa of the Crosby range of chains and accessories.
AMS has grown into a dependable manufacturer and supplier of lifting, towing, mooring and trawling equipment into the Southern African industry during the last decade and a half. The company was recently awarded Dekra ISO9001-2008 certification. Crosby joins a select group of internationally respected manufacturers already represented by AMS, namely – Bridon International, Euronete Lankhorst Group and Kuplex.
Crosby is considered to be the industry standard for lifting equipment, both nationally and internationally (with their products type approved by ABS and/or DNV). Many rigging contracts in the US and around the world, read “Crosby Only” or “Crosby or Equal,” according to AMS.
AMS now carries significant stocks of Crosby’s chains and accessories in Cape Town and is concluding distribution agreements with sub-distributors in other centres in South Africa.
The first of these is with Akhanani Electromechanical Engineering in Alrode, Johannesburg.
Akhanani is positioned as a specialised multi-disciplinary engineering, lifting and materials handling company to the mining, power generation, chemical, oil, gas and industrial sectors throughout Southern Africa.
South African companies looking for specific products at short notice are often frustrated by the non availability of their requirements locally. AMS says it is committed to fully servicing the Crosby chain and accessories range of products and is building up a stock profile that represents the regular requirements of local companies. A comprehensive range of Crosby Grade 100 alloy chains, master links & assemblies, Lok-A-Loy chain connectors,
Shur-Loc hooks and Eliminator single and double hooks are now in stock in Cape Town.
Chain sling rigs can also be assembled as required.
