Verton and The Crosby Group expand load orientation technology in North America
As a partner and master distributor of Verton products for the Americas, The Crosby Group has invested in additional units for deployment in the United States and Canada, as well as key team members to support the growing business.
Verton’s innovative load orientation solutions include Everest 6, SpinPodTM 7.5 and SpinPodTM 30, a modular load orienting system for a broad range of working load limits.
Robert Desel, CEO of The Crosby Group, said, “Verton’s remote-controlled load orientation products provide a step-change in terms of the safety and productivity of our customers’ lifting operations. Verton’s wireless products remotely orientate suspended loads without the need for taglines, using gyroscopes and sophisticated control systems, removing the need for personnel near or under loads. The combined strengths of Verton’s product with the rich rigging heritage of The Crosby Group has allowed us to bring these benefits to job sites across the Americas.”
CEO of Verton, Tim Ekert, said, “We are thrilled to see the investment that The Crosby Group is making in support of our partnership. Verton will have a greatly increased presence in the market to bring our products to new customers and industries and to provide an increased level of support to our existing customers.”
The Verton range of intelligent and safe lifting solutions can provide benefits to all industries. The Crosby Group services include land-based and offshore energy, construction and infrastructure, cargo handling and towing, marine, mining and transportation.
Verton guarantees that its solutions deliver an ROI of at least 25% per month. Verton’s load orientation technology is said to reduce downtime by 25% and hook time by 50%. In addition, Verton users see an immediate improvement in the safety and productivity of their lifting operations.
Verton is an innovative technology firm and inventor of the world’s first remote-controlled load orientation system. This revolutionary system makes taglines obsolete, removing the need for workers to be near moving or suspended loads, keeping them out of harm’s way. Verton’s range of lifting products also integrates smart technology to facilitate more precise load placement, faster task turnover, and superior analysis and oversight of operations. The technology will significantly benefit lifting operations by moving towards `hands-free` lifting and keeping workers clear of potentially high-risk zones.
