Quality7 – everything from a single source

From design to service, all product stages are closely interlinked at SpanSet Axzion. The 7-point QUALITY SEVEN program stands for the strictly monitored creation of the products in the in-house development and production, starting from the steel to the finished load handling device. Approx. 84 % of all products delivered are modifications and individual solutions, only about every 6th load handling device is a standard product. The processing of high-quality materials and the in-house construction of the products guarantee optimal function. The company also holds numerous quality certificates, such as the major welding suitability EN 1090-1/2 and EXC3. New developments are tested on our own test benches, which have a tensile strength of up to 1650 tons. For offshore use, testing by Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyds Register or Norske Veritas is mandatory. Afterwards, customers receive comprehensive documentation. Experienced engineers and technicians provide service, maintenance and repair, training and the correct use of the products.

With its nearly 130 employees, SpanSet Axzion can look back on a large number of offshore projects and special constructions.
