WHAT WE DO
We provide lashing/ loading solutions to the transport industry across the globe.
Our system, Tycan®, has been created from the world’s strongest man-made fiber, Dyneema®, and is a link chain that has all the performance and flexibility of steel chain but is a fraction of the weight. It is extremely safe to use, non-corrosive, non-conductive and completely waterproof. In fact, it even floats!
By using Tycan® our clients achieve greater productivity, reduced costs and a safer working environment for their staff.
