Canada's Load Systems International has opened operations in the UK. Load Systems UK Ltd is based in Aberdeen, Scotland, and will provide services to the UK, Europe and Middle East market, providing wireless instrumentation and technology to the crane and lifting industry.
The Aberdeen office will offer Load Systems' full range of products, including safe load indicators, load cells, load links, load pin shackles and A2B switches.
Kirk Anderson heads up the new UK division as managing director. Millar Kennedy, sales director, and Richard Legge, technical director, join him.
Load Systems chose Aberdeen for its UK base as the city is heavily linked to the oil industry. It expects strong demand for its sales, hire, repairs and calibration services from its domestic market.
The Canada-based company also operates in Houston, USA; Adelaide, Australia; and Dubai, UAE.
