Our history

We have been a genuine family business since Mr. and Mrs. Kanon founded Kanon Loading Equipment BV in 1978. Our family business is reflected in our way of thinking. For example: we don’t strive to become the biggest loading partner in the world. We genuinely want to do what is best for you and therefore focus on the long term. You may also see our family values reflected in our organizational structure. We have short lines of communication and the differences in hierarchy between employees and management are small. Just like a family, we stick together. If there’s a problem, we’ll solve it together. This ensures that we are sincerely entering into a partnership with our clients.

Marine Loading Arm

What our customers say about Kanon:

  • It couldn’t have been otherwise and, I wouldn’t have expected it. My expectation with the new MLAs was too high, and believe me when I say, the new MLA’s have reached it. Excellent product, excellent design.

  • The Marine Loading Arm offers a significant improvement over a hose in the transfer of liquids between vessel and shore because It provides an easier and more ergonomic operation, gives longer service life and permits Emergency Release Action without any spillage of product and without any pollution together with a swivel joint which can, to some extent, follow the movement of a moored vessel.

    We did successfully preventive maintenance & completed the training of the facility operations team together with the port authority personals. Another great “toy” for the big boys & another huge
