Bromma is the industry’s most experienced spreader manufacturer, known worldwide for crane spreaders of exceptional reliability.
In all, more than 14,000 crane spreaders and rotators have been put into service since the 1960’s. More than 9,000 of these are in operation today around the globe. Bromma has delivered spreaders to more than 500 terminals in over 90 countries in 6 continents. Today, Bromma manufactures close to 2,000 spreaders of all types per year. In fact, anywhere you go, if you work where containers are transported, you’re likely to see a Bromma spreader in action.
Bromma is the technical leader in our industry, having developed the first telescopic spreader, the first twin-twenty spreader, the first 45 foot spreader, and the first all-electric spreader line. Bromma’s testing, manufacturing, and service systems are also first-rate. Our finite element modeling software allow us to study, model and analyze stresses within the spreader so we know how it is going to handle accumulated fatigue – how it is going to hold up under year-after-year of punishing service. Likewise, prior to delivery, every spreader undergoes extensive testing of functions such as twistlocks, flipper arms and telescopic movements.
With our extensive network of offices and partners around the world, no one supports spreaders like Bromma. Bromma’s total quality management program has resulted in Bromma factory being awarded ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO3834 certification – the first spreader manufacturer to be so recognized. Cutting edge technology is only one reason why customers choose Bromma.
Just as important as our technical leadership is our philosophy of standing behind our products. Bromma is a company that customers can rely on.
At Bromma, innovation is a tradition, the product of a value-driven engineering culture. At Bromma R&D in Stockholm, the goals are clearly defined: higher productivity (higher container moves per hour), greater reliability (lower downtime), simple, service- friendly design, ease-of-use in operation and diagnostics, environmental leadership, and safety.
The Bromma brand carries a proud Swedish heritage. And the spirit of Swedish engineering and entrepreneurial excellence remains strong in our company. A spirit shaped by the successful Swedish industrial tradition that emerged in the 1950s and 60s – which gave the small country international credibility and which resounds worldwide to this day.
The term Swedish quality was coined and became a quality assurance of products deriving from Sweden. Many brands of Swedish origin have over the years taken leadership positions in various industrial segments, including the automotive, power and technology, and pharmaceutical industry.
Bromma has been at the forefront of this industrial tradition for more than 50 years, and will continue to carry its industrial heritage into the future –ensuring quality, reliability and service-mindedness to customers around the world.

The process within the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to implement the mandatory verification of a container weight before it is loaded on to a vessel is progressing as expected. In a May 2014 meeting, the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) approved draft amendments to SOLAS (the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea) chapter VI to require the mandatory verification of the gross mass of containers, either by weighing a packed container, or by weighing all packages and cargo items and adding the tare mass. The requirements are expected to enter into force in July 2016. It is clearly stated in the draft amendment that the responsibility for obtaining and documenting the container weight lies with the shipper. This means that the burden to comply with the new regulations is not with terminal operators as such, but the situation - where many shippers will not have access to the facilities needed to fulfill their duties - provides terminal operators with an opportunity to offer such a service to shippers.
This article will elaborate on one of the things that risks being unforeseen by the regulatory authorities when defining the accuracy requirements: the difference between “equipment accuracy” and accuracy of the actual container weight. It will also look at some of the characteristics of the two main equipment options available to weigh the container in the terminal to establish the VGM. What are the benefits and what are the negatives related to them
