Crosby Announces Partnership for Tycan Lashing Chain
Mike Wheeler, Director of Marketing
October 4, 2016
Dear Crosby Business Partner:
Providing innovative products to meet the needs of ever changing customer needs has been a major driving force behind Crosby’s success for more than a century. That force continues. We are excited to announce a partnership that has allowed Crosby to become the exclusive global provider of an innovative product designed for use in tie-down/lashing markets.
Crosby has teamed up with Load Solutions (Norway), the developer of an innovative DNV GL certified Tycan® lashing chain. The chain is constructed entirely of DSM’s synthetic material, Dyneema®, an Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene regarded as the world’s strongest man-made fiber.
To read about the many benefits of the new chain, please see attached press release. The press release also includes a link to our website where you will be able to view a short video on the Crosby Tycan® lashing chain system. The press release will be made available later this week to the general market.
To support the new line, we will also be providing a new load binder designed exclusively for the shape and strength of the synthetic chain. The binder and chain will be available Q1 2017.
As we get closer to launch, we will provide more specifics on the chain and load binder systems. Until then, please feel free to contact your local Crosby sales representative, Mike Osborn or me.
