UAE distributor for Straightpoint

UK based load measurement/monitoring equipment manufacturer Straightpoint has appointed Dutest as its dealer for the United Arab Emirates.

The appointment follows Straightpoint’s acquisition by US based lifting gear manufacturer Crosby, which had an existing supply agreement in place. Established in 1980, lifting gear specialist Dutest is part of the Bin Dasmal group, and operates from locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Dutest regional manager Saravanan T said: “We already work closely with Crosby and receive excellent support from them. It made business sense to add Straightpoint’s products to our extensive stocks of lifting and rigging gear. I anticipate demand for their equipment from marine, aviation, manufacturing, and heavy construction industries, in addition to oil and gas.”

Straightpoint business development director load monitoring solutions David Ayling added: “One of the appeals of Crosby ownership was enhanced market penetration. That is not to say Dutest wouldn’t have considered a partnership with Straightpoint directly at some stage, but the existence of the Dutest-Crosby relationship clearly accelerated us to this point.”
