Van Beest – manufacturer of Tycan fibre chain, Excel chain fittings and Green Pin rope fittings – announces that it will merge the brands Tycan and Excel into Green Pin as of today.
As a result of this decision, Excel will cease to exist as a separate brand and Tycan will be used under the Green Pin umbrella as the name for all products related to fibre technology. In merging these brands, Van Beest creates one big premium brand – Green Pin – for all below-the-hook fittings. Van Beest will continue to manufacture Green Pin (formerly Excel) chain fittings at its current production location in France.
Evert van Beuzekom, Vice President Sales and Procurement at the Van Beest Group reflects: “Excel, Tycan and Green Pin all represent premium quality products and thus have a natural fit with one another. In merging them under one Green Pin brand, we further support our mission of providing customers with high quality below-the-hook fittings combined with efficient service and high stock availability.”
Van Beest will continue to sell the full product range – Tycan fibre chain, Green Pin rope fittings and Green Pin chain fittings – under the new, premium brand name through our existing distributor network.
