The manufacturer is the person who “bears the responsibility for the design and manufacture of a product” that is marketed in his name. If the operator designs and/or manufactures his own load handling equipment, then he becomes the manufacturer and thus bears the responsibility.
The procurement of a load handling device must also take place in an orderly manner; the supplier must be suitable and qualified for the manufacture of these safety-critical products. To put it another way: Even the selection of an unsuitable manufacturer can lead to personal liability of the responsible persons at the customer.
Buy from the specialist, Axzion is responsible for you.
