Following an intensive audit procedure by international oilfield services provider Technip we have now been awarded their ‘green light’ status ensuring we can continue our successful relationship as a supplier.
We have invested in a Talurit 350 tonne wire rope press, allowing us to make wire rope slings from 10mm to 30mm diameter. This will save a lot of valuable time for our customers, as we will now be able to manufacture the slings in-house.
We spent two weeks working through the night, testing the fixing points to fit steel plates for the hanging of wire ropes to hold this year’s Christmas lights on George Street. As Edinburgh Council wanted more lights, five extra wires and fixing points were manufactured, tested and fitted.
Braving November’s cold, we worked hard to manufacture, fit and test the brackets before erecting the banners outside the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in time for its grand reopening. We supplied all the rigging gear and pressed the securing wires for the brackets in our Leith test house to ensure they met our high standards.
