Lead­ing wire and rope sup­pli­ers join forces

The Australian Mining Review - - CRANES & LIFTING -

NA­TIONAL lift­ing and rig­ging equip­ment ser­vices provider A. No­ble & Son (Nobles) has inked a deal with Bri­don-Bekaert to jointly mar­ket and sell Bri­don and WRI branded wire ropes into the Aus­tralian un­der­ground min­ing and crane mar­ket.

Ef­fec­tive since 27 Novem­ber, the wire rope dis­tri­bu­tion and sup­ply agree­ment has ex­panded on Nobles’ al­ready di­verse prod­uct of­fer­ings; in­clud­ing syn­thetic and wire rope slings, chain slings and com­po­nents, lift­ing and rig­ging hard­ware, moor­ing chains, hoist­ing and winch­ing prod­ucts, ma­te­ri­als han­dling, load re­straints, ve­hi­cle re­cov­ery and more.

“Bri­don-Bekaert Ropes Group is a global wire rope man­u­fac­turer pro­duc­ing both the Bri­don and WRI range of high-per­for­mance un­der­ground min­ing ropes from its tech­ni­cally ad­vanced global man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties,” Bri­don-Bekaert Ocea­nia vice pres­i­dent Stu­art Cal­len­der said.

“Glob­ally, we are the lead­ing and in­no­va­tive sup­plier of un­der­ground min­ing wire ropes with an ex­ten­sive in­stalled base across North and South Amer­ica, Africa, Europe & Rus­sia.”

Nobles man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Guy Roberts said given Nobles’ ex­ten­sive min­ing wire rope cus­tomer base and as­so­ci­ated tech­ni­cal installation, in­spec­tion and NDT ser­vices in Aus­tralia, and Bri­don-Bekaert’s lead­ing un­der­ground min­ing wire rope man­u­fac­tur­ing and tech­ni­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties glob­ally, it made sense that they aligned their re­spec­tive busi­nesses to sup­ply and ser­vice the grow­ing un­der­ground min­ing mar­ket in Aus­tralia.

Mr Roberts said both par­ties jointly agreed on a set of key per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors that will be sup­ported by com­pre­hen­sive in-coun­try tech­ni­cal sup­port and lo­cal stock hold­ings to ser­vice cus­tomer re­quire­ments.
