Welcome to the third instalment of our newsletter which allows us to share our news and innovations with our customers and friends.

Since our last newsletter in September 2016, we have achieved many successes in the last quarter of 2016.

As a result of an independent report, we saw ports and terminals leaning towards the benefits of using single hoist cranes for multiple container lifts. The report produced for a port in Asia conducted a cost and operational analysis between single hoist and dual hoist cranes for multiple container lifting and compared headblock connections from three different spreader equipment manufacturers.The report recommended for ports to consider using single hoist cranes. More significantly, the RAM SingFlex headblock connection was identified to rank first in a number of test parameters.

We also saw in November 2016 how our dedication in providing innovative solutions helped RAM and MMG Las Bambas Peru win the International Bulk Journal Innovative Technology Award 2016. The IBJ Awards celebrate excellence in the bulk handling industry. And the achievement of this award recognised not just our hard work, strength and dedication, but also our ability to work with our customer – MMG Las Bambas – in developing the world’s first Bi-Modal Containerised Bulk Handling solution.

We obtained new welding certification in line with international and European standards following the changes in the DIN 18800 certification and its replacement by new welding standards. We also began a new Leadership Quality Programme to further enhance the quality and productivity at our manufacturing facility.
