Equiplite has appointed RSB Rigging Solutions as its official Spanish service centre. The manufacturer of ‘super braid loop hardware’ for sailing yachts has formalised a longstanding partnership that has existed between the two companies.

Commenting on the decision by Euiplite CEO Lourens Poorter, RSB director, Steve Branagh said:

‘’RSB have worked closely with Equiplite Europe under the ‘Sailing Perfection' group of companies for many years and, having completed the necessary servicing courses with Equiplite Europe’s global service technicians, have now become the Spanish Equiplite Europe service centre.”

Outlining RSB’s service provision Branagh said the crucial selling point was the fact that parts would not need to be sent off site for repairs. “We are able to service the Snatch blocks and Quick Connectors in house using Equiplite supplied parts and loops”, he explained. “Hardware does not need to be shipped back to The Netherlands for servicing, making the process much more convenient and cost effective for the client.

“We advocate the Equiplite products. They can be found on virtually every super yacht worldwide, they lead the market in strong, light weight, good quality products that are easy to use”, he added.
