J.C. Renfroe & Sons Partners with Spanish Sheave Manufacturer

J.C. Renfroe & Sons, Jacksonville, Fla., has added to its production of Renfroe Too rigging products by housing and partnering with Bilbao, Spain-based Gosan to manufacture sheaves in the United States. Gosan USA will occupy approximately 40,000 square feet of new manufacturing and warehousing space at the Renfroe facilities. This partnership will provide the company with the capability of delivering sheaves produced in the U.S., making shipping faster and less costly.

The company’s sheave line is a major component of the Renfroe Too inventory, which also includes a variety of blocks, swivels and other lifting, moving and rigging products. Sheaves offered include ball bearing, machined bore, bronze bushing, and roller bearing models.

“With the increase in construction from developing nations, the likely expansion of the oil drilling industry, and infrastructure replacement, we anticipate greater demand for sheaves in the marketplace,” explained Anne Renfroe, president and owner of J.C. Renfroe & Sons.

“One of Gosan¹s top executives, Juan Miguel Gutierrez, serves as the managing director of Gosan USA. Gosan has been known for producing a quality product in Europe for over 40 years. We are proud to be able to bring their technology and talent to our shores and to our manufacturing facility,” Renfroe said.
