Verton has developed a remote-controlled load orientation system that makes taglines obsolete, removing the need for workers to be near moving or suspended loads. The Crosby Group says that through investing in Verton it aims to accelerate the adoption of this load orientation technology through leveraging its global footprint.

Verton’s solutions include Windmaster, a load orientation device for wind turbine erection

Verton’s solutions include Everest 6, a 20-tonne load orienting spreader beam, Everest 30, a modular load orienting system for a broad range of working load limits, and Windmaster, a load orientation device for wind turbine erection.

Robert Desel, CEO of The Crosby Group, said, “We are thrilled to partner with Verton in this rapidly growing space. This investment is a perfect strategic fit due to our common end user base and our shared values of safety, reliability and innovation.”
