Ellis’ Vulcan+ cable cleats are amongst the company’s most popular products and were specified by BHP due to their exceptional corrosion resistant properties.

The BHP Spence salination plant order was won by Santiago-based distributor Teprem.

Kelly Brown, Ellis export sales manager, said: “Latin America is noted for being one of the hardest export markets to break into, but the success we’re enjoying there pays testament to our tried and tested method of fully researching a new market before entering it.
