Sometimes in business things just click. You find a terrific customer that promotes your company or form a relationship with a vendor who gets your business. This is the case with the relationship between two amazing Knoxville companies: Lokar Performance Products and Rowe Transfer Inc., both based in Knoxville, TN. Lokar called upon Rowe Transfer as the logical solution to help move their entire machine shop and automotive part production operation in 2014 and continues to count on Rowe to deliver, place, and move new machines on an ongoing basis. Lokar’s Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Ford says that “Rowe is always fair, and I feel comfortable and confident in them to get the job done without mistakes. They’re also flexible. I have never heard that we have to wait for them to get a transport job done which is important when accepting delivery for a new machine. I don’t have to call anyone else for a quote because they are so fair.”
Rowe Transfer uses a plethora of advanced rigging equipment and rigging systems in order to tackle your biggest jobs. Rigging is the act of preparing large objects to be moved and moving them safely. Rigging is also used as a noun to describe the common rigging hardware used on the job. We get asked quite often about what equipment we use to move monstrously heavy objects. Common rigging hardware includes a variety of equipment including wire rope, turnbuckles, clevis, jacks, cranes, and many other types of lifting equipment. A Rigging system will typically involve shackles, master links, and slings.
