AME enters port segment with Easy Gripper
AME International has entered the port business with its Easy Gripper, a tyre handling tool that allows users to manipulate and handle all sizes of port tyres.
Fenix Marine Services, one of the largest container terminals in the largest container port in the Western Hemisphere, recently adopted the Easy Gripper and has become the first port terminal in North America to feature this technology.
Matt Dickinson, senior manager, Terminal Management, said the Easy Gripper has “added more value to our operation than any other piece of gear.”
“We’ve installed Easy Grippers in tyre shops, tyre and equipment manufacturers, mine sites and now ports,” said Mike Farrell, AME’s Repair Manager. “Many ports are currently using forklifts to manoeuvre these stacks of tires. It’s always great to see our products improve safety, productivity and processes for our customers.”
