Coopers get lashed with TEC Containers

Cooper Specialised Handling Ltd, the UK’s leading independent port and heavy handling equipment supplier has announced with TEC Container of Madrid, to supply their products throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.


TEC Containers specialises in the design and the production of equipment for container handling & lashing, general cargo, wind energy and personnel security equipment in container ports and terminals. Founded in 1976, TEC Container has supplied products to more than 70 different ports in more than 40 countries all over the world. – with a product range that encompasses spreader-mounted lashing cages, bespoke over-height frames plus a complete portfolio of 20’ and 40’ fixed frames and associated attachments to convert container lifters equipment into other forms of lifting equipment.

Speaking on behalf of Cooper Specialised Handling Ireland, Group Executive Director David Cooper said, “We are thrilled to partner the TEC Container team which simply adds to our multi-channel distribution policy and complements our broad port-handling scope of supply.”  Cooper continued “Having visited the Madrid facility and viewed for ourselves the products, we can immediately see why TEC Containers have been so successful globally in this niche sector”

Rafael Moragon, General Manager of TEC Containers said “For some reason our market penetration in the UK market has not been the same as other European countries and Cooper Specialised Handling Ireland seems ideally positioned to challenge this status quo. We really look forward to this new working relationship and we will provide our full support”

The TEC Container portfolio will appeal to all major port operations, especially in STS and MHC operations for the spreader and cage product as well as ‘out-of-gauge’ flat rack handling where the over-height range will be relevant.
