Chain has always been a specialist product for BGD. We source our new chain from Italy and China.

China – Over 95% of the worlds commercial and military shipping fleets (including the Royal Navy) use anchor chain that has been manufactured in China, our supplier produces calibrated chain that been made on machines that are designed and manufactured in Europe.
Services - We supply chain in any quantity, our fabrication facility can add enlarged end links plus many other options, our riggers can splice rope to chain.
Our parent company (EYE Marine Ltd) has always carried a large stock of top-quality marine-grade used chain in sizes from 30mm to 50mm. They source this chain from merchant ships that are being decommissioned or vessels that are replacing anchor chain to comply with maritime requirements. This chain is very suitable for many purposes including use as ground chain in mooring systems.
