Vecom are specialists in metal surface treatment. Offering a range of treatments such as chemical pickling, passivation, electropolishing and mechanical polishing of stainless steel, more recently, they have introduced the SUBLIMOTION-process®; a wet-blasting operation that improves the topography of the steel leaving a smooth and hydrophobic surface. When the work is too large to transport, or is a fixed installation, Vecom will travel worldwide to carry out the pre-commissioning chemical cleaning of pipework, boilers and other large systems.

With 16 locations in Holland, Belgium, Germany and the UK, they have witnessed first-hand the gradual shift in emphasis towards quality and the need to specialise in order to meet the job requirements.

DDIN Stringing Blocks

As the exclusive distributor of DDIN products, we provide light-weight, rugged and extremely reliable stringing blocks for both purchase and rental.

We stock standard, wide throat, and grounded stringing blocks. Constructed of an aluminum alloy, each block features urethane lined sheaves to prevent damage to the conductor and anti-friction bearings packed in synthetic grease to keep them running smoothly in extreme temperatures. A lifting bar in the center and another at the bottom of the frame allow for a line to be secured to the block when pulling around a corner.

In addition to our standard transmission blocks our inventory includes 16” to 42” wide throat and grounded helicopter blocks. Ideal for stringing multiple sizes of single overhead conductors where the pilot line will be flown in. One of the unique features these blocks have is the exclusive "Snap Lock" fold away helicopter arm, which eliminates the need for removing pins to deploy or retract the fly arm. Combined with a 12,000 lbs. working load, spring loaded side gate and synthetically lubricated shielded bearings, these helicopter blocks ensure smooth and consistent operation even in the toughest of environments.
