The Crosby Group has acquired Speedbinders, a USA-based designer and manufacturer of load binders for heavy-duty load securement.

Speedbinders’ solutions include Torque Drive load binders, which use a portable power drill to secure loads, eliminating the need for repetitive, manual operations common with lever and ratchet binders.

Robert Desel, ceo of under-the-jib equipment specialist Crosby Group, said: “We are thrilled to expand our best-in-class load securement portfolio with Speedbinders. The Torque Drive technology’s dual focus on enhancing worker safety and improving productivity for drivers is a winning combination for the industry.

“Speedbinders will provide additional opportunities for our valued channel partners, and together, we will bring this innovation to end-users worldwide,” Desel continued.
