Ringfeder plans to increase it's UK market share for Locking Assemblies and Shrink Disks by appointing one of the UK's leading industrial engineering component suppliers as a distributor.

German power transmission product manufacturer Ringfeder has appointed Acorn Industrial Services Ltd as a UK distributor for its RINGFEDER, ECOLOC, TSCHAN and GERWAH range of internal clamping and external clamping locking devices and coupling products. Ringfeder is known as a world-leader in the power transmission industry, and this new partnership with ACORN® is set to strengthen this reputation even further. Following an initial investment of over £30,000, ACORN could now be considered the UK’s largest stockist of Ringfeder and ECOLOC locking assemblies and shrink disks.

Bob Wright, ACORN’s Couplings and Drives Product Manager commented “Ringfeder is one of the most respected manufacturers of quality locking elements and shrink discs in the world today. Their range is also one of, if not THE, largest in the market. ACORN is proud to become a UK distributor for the Ringfeder range, and we are delighted to be able to supply these high quality products.” Adding “Same day despatch means customers can now receive their locking devices faster than ever – potentially saving them hours or even days of downtime.“
