Thanks to the experience acquired year by year Sormec Marine and Offshore Cranes has reached positive results with concern to quality. Quality is the core values of everyday work, with regard to product, service and all the activities which lead to a complete customer satisfaction.
We don’t work with sub-contractors, we make everything in our workshops and this means that we can control the production process, make sure the quality is right. We do everything, from cutting the steel sheets, folding, welding, machining, sand blasting and painting, to assembling and shipping the cranes.
Sormec is able to compete on price and with quality, but what really marks it out the firm’s ability to answer customers’ requirements which supplement its development of cutting-edge, highly customised products. In order to deliver only the best possible solutions, the company constantly invests in new equipment.
To make significant improvements in design, commodities purchasing, manufacturing and assembling, Sormec has undertaken a documented process of quality levels, in which Certification Authorities, such as R.I.NA., LRS, DNV, BV, ABS, GL, CCS, RMRS, have been formally involved. In order to improve Quality Management System, performance indicators and measurable targets have been adopted. Thanks to this control process, which is revised and renewed every year, development and progress are constantly under care and attention.

The API Monogram mark on our cranes is a warranty by API Monogram licensees to the API and its purchasers that the marked products comply in every aspect with the applicable API product specification in effect at the time of manufacture.
The painting, bi-component type, is realized to guarantee the best protection and adherence to the surfaces. All semimanufactured steel products are shot blasted with a grade of SA 2 ½, in accordance ISO8501-1 (DIN55928). Before painting the crane and all components such as motor reduction gear, slewing ring, valves, distributor, are thoroughly washed to clean all surfaces from oil and grease to realize the maximum adhesion.
To guarantee the best resistance against the marine corrosion every component is painted independently before the assembling.
The painting procedure is performed in the following phases:
- First layer: INTERGARD 269/INTERSHIELD 300;
- Second layer: INTERSHIELD 300;
- Final layer: INTERTHANE 990.
Total paint thickness following this procedure is 350 micron and this is carefully controlled.
