Verton has appointed Welgro as its first distributor in South Africa. The partnership means that Welgro’s clients will be able to safely improve their productivity and bottom line by using the world’s first remote-controlled load-management system.

Welgro was founded in 1986 with the purpose of providing quality products and service delivery to the mining, engineering, industrial and agricultural sectors. It specialises in supporting large Tier 1 companies, and partners with reputable national and international companies to offer comprehensive tooling and lifting equipment to their clients.

Welgro director Kyle Handley says that partnering with Verton will fundamentally change how customers plan their lifting operations.

“One of Welgro’s primary goals is to assist our customers to make their operations safer and more efficient. This partnership is driven by these mutual goals shared by Verton and Welgro,” he says. “It comes at a time where I believe the desire around improvements to workforce safety on site is on a steep rise and a major investment area for companies. Alongside Verton and The Crosby Group, we are looking forward to providing our customers with smart technology solutions they can trust to improve safety.”

Meanwhile, Verton and The Crosby Group have expanded Verton’s load orientation technology in North America.

As a partner and master distributor of Verton products for the Americas, The Crosby Group has invested in additional units for deployment in the United States and Canada, as well as key team members to support the growing business.  

Verton CEO Tim Ekert says Verton will have a greatly increased presence in the market to bring its products to new customers and industries and to provide an increased level of support to existing customers.
