Accelerate your crane grab productivity.

Proven bulk grab technology to unload and load ships faster, with fewer maintenance costs

We are a family business from The Netherlands, founded in 1924. Ever since our foundation, we’ve held a strong belief in the power of innovation to increase the efficiency of customers’ bulk handling operation. A belief that won us countless industry and non-industry awards. It also made us the preferred partner of dry bulk handling organisations around the world. 

We help our partners with a full range of four-rope operated mechanical grabs for transshipment, loading and unloading ships. Whether for handling coal or iron ore, wheat, scrap metals, minerals, clinker, biomass or other dry bulk goods. Together with our high quality rope connections systems we always have a productive solution for what you are looking for.

"We unload a ship in four days instead of five"
