June 27 - Below the hook equipment supplier, Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has opened a new facility in Hayes, near Heathrow Airport, in the UK.

The new depot will be the company's fifth UK facility and managing director Steve Hutin says it marks the continuation of a long term plan to have 10 facilities covering the whole of the UK.

From the outset, RSS will invest in high stock levels, including larger rigging equipment specifically for the crane hire market, says Hutin.
