Straightpoint has named Onursan as a distributor of its load cells and force measurement equipment in Turkey.
The Istanbul-based company is a specialist supplier to the marine safety industry. According to Straightpoint, the partnership represents Onursan's entry into the modern load cell marketplace, having previously only offered analogue and dated digital technologies.
Barbaros Onur, general coordinator at Onursan, said: "Reliable force measurement technology is becoming increasingly important to our customers, who work in the hazardous marine environment. We have experimented with alternative measuring products to complete load tests, for example, but we have experienced problems. The reputed quality and durability of Straightpoint's portfolio, therefore, appealed to us."
Onur expects the products to be used with cargo cranes, winches, and periodic testing of launching equipment as well as other safety installations onboard vessels.
In addition to its headquarters in Istanbul, Onursan has facilities in Izmir.
