June 9 - Straightpoint has named Hoisting Equipment Specialists (HES) as its distributor in Australia.

Under the agreement, the Melbourne based company will supply Straightpoint's full range of equipment and promote it through its HES, Schillings Hoisting Equipment and Load Restraint Systems brands.

Australian Calibrating Services will remain a Straightpoint supplier and will calibrate equipment upon arrival into Australia.

However, the company confirmed that HES will replace its existing force measurement equipment suppliers with Straightpoint's range, positioning it as the load cell manufacturer's lead representative in the region.
