Van Beest B.V. – Sliedrecht, Netherlands has appointed Lift-It Manufacturing Co., Inc. – Pomona, CA as the North American Master Distributor for Green Pin® Tycan® Synthetic Chain.

Tycan® Synthetic Chain will be well served by Lift-It and their team of North American Master Distributors who will do much more than simply sell Tycan® products, but provide training as well as documenting the ongoing value propositions that make Tycan® Chain the adjustable option for properly trained and informed riggers and transportation professionals”.

Tycan® Synthetic Load Handling Chain and Tycan® Chain components are used to fabricate

Single, Double, Triple and Four Leg - Adjustable Chain Sling Assemblies with capacities ranging from 3,400 to 23,000 lbs. Load handling chain assemblies feature a 5/1 design factor. Lashing Chain Assemblies feature a 3/1 design factor and are available in 11,021 and 14.990 Work Load Limits.
