For over 80 years the production of high tensile shackles has been our core business and competence. Dirk van Beest founded the Van Beest company in 1922, initially as a supplier of iron works to the dredging industry, which was strongly developed in the Sliedrecht area. From the very beginning, the company has been forging shackles. Its ironwork expertise gave the Van Beest shackle an edge over the competition and this was the start of a network of professional users that now stretches across the globe. In 2007 Van Beest acquired the brand Excelﾮ. Under this brand grade 8 and grade 10 lifting hooks are produced in our French factory. The designs and quality standards of our products are the result of requirements put forward over the years by our customers in markets throughout the world. Our shackles are marked Green Pinﾮ, our hooks Excelﾮ, we are the sole proprietors of these two brands. Van Beest has branches in The Netherlands, Germany, France and the USA. Additionally, wholesalers in over 80 countries carry big stocks of Green Pinﾮ shackles and Excelﾮ hooks to serve their own markets.
