3 Dear customer, For over 90 years the production of high tensile shackles has been our core business and competence. Dirk van Beest founded the Van Beest company in 1922, initially as a supplier of iron works to the dredging industry, which was strongly developed in the Sliedrecht area. From the very beginning, the company has been forging shackles. Its ironwork expertise gave the Van Beest shackle an edge over the competition and this was the start of a network of professional users that now stretches across the globe. In 2007 Van Beest acquired the brand Excel®. Under this brand grade 8 and grade 10 lifting hooks are produced in our French factory. The designs and quality standards of our products are the result of requirements put forward over the years by our customers in markets throughout the world. Our shackles are branded Green Pin®, our hooks Excel® , we are the sole proprietors of these two brands. Production At Van Beest we were faced with a labour-intensive production unit. Over the years Van Beest invested, with its own engineers, in the development of a production line of high quality output. The highly automated machines in our two factories are custom built to Van Beest’s requirements and thus to those of our customers. The same technicians demand the quality of the products during production and therefore guarantee quality to our customers. Each individual Green Pin® shackle or Excel® hook is marked with the steel grade and a traceability code. But quality is not only a matter of the product itself, it stretches across the entire organization. Since 1993 our company has been ISO certified by Lloyds; currently we are ISO 9001-2008 certified. Accessories Our products are used by professionals in many different environments such as the offshore industry, naval construction, the fishing industry, mining, and general industry, to mention just a few. The Green Pin® shackle or Excel® hook is usually the final connection, and to serve our customers best, we have added a wide range of other steel wire rope and chain accessories which complement our full range of high quality products. These accessories are engineered by Van Beest and carefully sourced from certified suppliers to ensure they represent the same high quality performance as our own products.
