Van Beest relocates in Houston

Van Beest USA has moved its office and distribution centre in Houston to larger premises.

The move took place earlier this year and will enhance both new and used product availability for North American customers, said Van Beest.

“The new office and distribution center allows Van Beest to stock five times the amount of inventory than the previous location, which translates to an even better service and availability level than ever before,’’ said Chris Keffer, president of Van Beest USA.

Van Beest manufactures accessories for lifting chain and steel wire ropes such as Green Pin shackles, hooks and Green Pin Tycan fibre chains.
