Nobles revamps wire rope supply options for Australian customers

15 June 2017

• New range of mining wire ropes to be launched in late 2017
• Nobles still has the best range of crane ropes in Australia

Adelaide, 15 June 2017: A. Noble & Son Limited (Nobles) advises customers that due to continually changing market dynamics and customer requirements, Nobles will launch a new range of mining wire ropes to bring greater choice to the Australian mining industry in late 2017.

As part of these planned changes in late November 2017, Nobles will no longer represent WireCo WorldGroup’s Casar range of wire ropes to the mining industry in Australia. Until then, Nobles will still continue to accept orders for Casar mining wire ropes, on an exclusive basis, for supply to Australian mining customers.

Managing Director of Nobles, Guy Roberts said, “Nobles has a long and proud history of supplying the Australian mining industry with high performance lifting and rigging products and technical services, including via a long and positive association with Casar high performance wire ropes. We remain committed to bringing our mining customers the latest in global innovation and greatest local value in high performance wire ropes, associated products and technical services - including attachments, wire rope NDT, installations and inspections.

Mr Roberts said, “Nobles new range of mining wire ropes will be ideally suited to the evolving needs of our Australian underground mining customers and details of the new range and supply options will be communicated to our customers in late 2017.”

With regard to supplying high performance ropes to the crane industry, Nobles will continue as a WireCo WorldGroup distribution partner, supplying the Casar range of crane ropes to the Australian market - for all types of cranes, from offshore oil & gas cranes, through to tower cranes, mobile cranes and fixed cranes.

Guy Roberts said that, “Like the mining industry, Nobles has supplied the Australian crane customers for many decades with the best range of products, including Casar and many other leading brands. Nobles is committed to remain a leading supplier with the best range of crane ropes in Australia.”
