Newsletter (February 2018)

     PDF Newsletter

Dear Friends, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to RAM Spreaders News.

Things have been hectic since the last edition.  We deepened our relationship with key accounts, expanded out geographical footprint, scored an award and are in the process of working on new product launches.

Delivering Value to Customers
It is always heartening to hear how our systems solve business challenges and increase productivity for our customers. Hence, you can imagine our excitement when we hear about the excellent feedback Transnet Port Terminals received from their customers following their introduction of the Containerised Bulk Handling system, using our RAM Revolver rotating spreader and broke loading rate records for the port.

Another customer in Latvia, Riga Universal Terminals, also saw an improvement in their biomass productivity with the implementation of the RAM Revolver Containerised Bulk Handling System. Being the very first RAM Revolver operating in Europe, this achievement is especially significant. See article on page 8 of our PDF newsletter.

Bolstering Our Market Presence
As a result of China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative, Russia and the CIS markets are seeing unprecedented growth. In order to leverage the opportunities presented by the growing CIS region, in particular Black and Caspian Sea, we have added a new member – Evgenii Kudriavtcev – to our team. Based in Russia, Evgenii is tasked to grow our presence in the CIS region with the full range of RAM-SMAG range of spreaders and bulk handling equipment.

Winning a Business Accolade
Just months after we bagged the International Bulk Journal Innovative Technology Award, we received another prestigious award at the recent SME100 Awards. RAM was awarded the SME100 Award for Fast Moving Companies in Singapore. This is a proud achievement that belonged to everyone. It would have been impossible without the support of our staff, partners and customers.

New Developments
As a forward looking company, we continue to keep a close watch on market trends in the container handling and bulk handling industry, exploring relevant opportunities. I am glad to share that our research and development efforts have been fruitful, and in the coming months, we will be launching new products, which will provide customers with an even bigger choice of machines to suit their needs. In particular, you can look forward to next generation PinSmart™ Automated Twistlock Handling.

This is an exciting time for us as a company. We are achieving many great breakthroughs. But we are mindful that these are only possible with continued help and support from you – our customers and friends. Thank you and we look forward to another great year with you in 2018.
