Rigging service program
BSI’s service and refit program is based upon a worldwide network of highly respected and experienced rigging companies and service technicians. Network members with cold heading facilities are referred to as Certified Service Centers where rigging companies that use BSI, or CSC’s, for heading services are referred to as Certified Service Technicians. Some of these partners we have been working with for many years and their continuous input has helped shaping our recommendations, product development and strengthened our joint experience.
This collaboration is beneficial to everyone in the network as we keep expanding it by adding new service centers. The service centers follow BSI’s recommendations and guidelines and are fully backed by the factory as they only use BSI supplied, or approved, materials when doing the refits for new or previously supplied BSI projects. This ensure full visibility and history of all materials installed in the rigging package.
