March 30 - CHOK-A-BLOK has appointed cargo safety equipment specialist, Bendoro, as the official CHOK-A-BLOK distributor within the Benelux transportation market.
The UK-based company, which manufactures a guard which helps to protect cargoes from damage caused by ill-fitting or badly protected webbing straps, says that Bendoro is an established distributor of cargo protection materials in the Benelux region with strong client relationships.
Linde Martens, business development director at CHOK-A-BLOK Ltd says: "Bendoro operates across the whole of the Benelux and has the experience to support the CHOK-A-BLOK brand throughout this region. In addition to having a strong presence within the transportation market, Bendoro started its business within the marine industry so we are delighted to announce that the company will be working with us in both the transportation and leisure marine sectors."
Bendoro sales director, Hans van der Bend, says: "We have built an enviable reputation in the Benelux region as a trusted and experienced distributor of specialist transportation equipment for securing loads and are delighted to be able to provide the latest innovation with the introduction of the CHOK-A-BLOK webbing guard."
Manufactured in the UK, the polypropylene CHOK-A-BLOK guard has a bonded Plastazote((r)) foam backing and is easily and swiftly attached to the webbing strap where it will hold its position while the strap is positioned and securely ratcheted. It can be moved up and down the webbing strap according to the support required and where necessary two or more units can be butted together to extend the protected area.
CHOK-A-BLOK says that the Plastazote((r)) foam is lightweight and flexible yet sufficiently tough to protect the cargo's surface. It is moisture resistant, non-toxic, UV stable, CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) and HCFC (hydrochlorofluorocarbon) free and will not mark, stain or corrode surfaces
with which it comes into contact.
