The Crosby Group has acquired Speedbinders.com, a designer and manufacturer of pioneering load binders for heavy-duty load securement.

Speedbinders' solutions include Torque Drive load binders which use a portable power drill to secure loads, eliminating the need for repetitive, manual operations common with lever and ratchet binders.

Robert Desel, CEO of The Crosby Group, says: "We are thrilled to expand our best-in-class load securement portfolio with Speedbinders. The Torque Drive technology's dual focus on enhancing worker safety and improving productivity for drivers is a winning combination for the industry.

"Speedbinders will provide additional opportunities for our valued channel partners and, together, we will bring this innovation to end-users worldwide."

Steve Helline, founder of Speedbinders, notes the "incredible journey to see this business from concept to significant adoption and now a partnership with a world leader in load securement".

"I can't think of a better steward of my business going forward and I look forward to supporting the continued adoption of Speedbinders in the market," he adds.

The Crosby Group is a global leader in the innovation, manufacturing and distribution of products and services used to make lifting and load securement safer and more efficient.
