How we select materials for our mooring equipment

It is Wednesday morning, 9 o’clock. A truck enters the Straatman factory site. The driver gets out and reports to the reception. Our receptionist refers him to the unloading dock at the side of the building. The canvas on cargo space of the truck is pushed aside and we see a number of thick steel plates. They are quickly unloaded with our cranes and immediately labelled with a unique identification number. The journey to become a Quick Release Hook has begun. But getting the steel plates is not just a matter of purchase and delivery. Here you can read how we choose our suppliers.
