Damen Anchor & Chain Factory Inks Agreement with Fendercare
Damen Anchor & Chain Factory (AKF) has signed a joint partnership agreement with Fendercare. Under the agreement, the partnership will build up complementary stock of anchors, chains and chain fittings and conduct installation of anchors and chains.
Working together in this way will ensure the partnership’s clients of product availability from numerous locations around the world. The agreement was signed at Seawork on 12 June.
Improved Availability and Shorter Lead Times
Speaking on the occasion of the signing ceremony, AKF managing director Walter Treffers explained the thinking behind the agreement: 'This partnership represents a win-win for all stakeholders. It increases the product portfolio of Fendercare with AKF’s proven product range and gives AKF products an even wider geographical distribution than before. Of course, the real benefit here is for our client, as we intended. They will now have improved availability of our products, equalling shorter lead times, which, ultimately means more uptime and improved earning potential.'
