Customer Service is far more important than most people give credit. Rigging Only is not just an office, a store, or a warehouse; we are a rigging shop and we service what we sell. Have a problem with a product? We want to know about it. Let us help you resolve any problems.
Some of the companies with very strong customer support are Harken, Schaefer, Andersen and Sta-Lok. We haven't had to use their support much as they make good products, but when we have they've been top flight. Most of the other companies we deal with are very good; it's one of the factors we consider before offering their products. When making a decision on who's product to buy don't just let price be the only factor.
Wichard has purchased Profurl. As many folks have heard the Wichard group had experienced delivery problems with product the first few years after acquiring Profurl. We're happy to say they have turned things around and deliveries of their products have been good. The few warrantee claims we've had have been dealt with first class
Andersen winch sales continue to sky rocket according to the importer. A new style of motor will allow you to mount the winch with no motor below deck or the option of a very low profile motor below deck. These winches are variable speed. Most sizes are now available. Andersen has just been purchased by Ronstan. Productions will still be in the Andersen plant in Denmark with all the same folks involved.
Schaefer Marine now has packaged traveler components, listed in our traveler section, making it easier to chose what parts you need. Schaefer has introduced the new M series blocks. They're very strong and a bit under the price of the competition.
Hayn Industries has added more CNC machines to their new CT facility, they're already talking an addition (yea Carl!). Hayn is the importer of Hi-Mod compression wire terminals (mfg by Petersen Rigging in the UK) and they've been a huge success!
Harken has many new changes for 2011; a new small block design, a completely revamped traveler line, new radial winches, new hydraulic systems, and more. You will most not likely see these new products on this site for a while. Go to www.riggingandhardware.com for up dates.
