MLA Philosophy


JLA was founded from a maintenance and operational perspective following on the request of our customers to improve existing loading equipment. In more than 35 years of experience in maintenance and servicing all brands and types of loading arms we created a new standard together with our customers. We differentiate ourselves by not only delivering high end products but a customer solution. This results in minimal costs and investments. The JLA Marine Loading Arms are designed with minimal CAPEX and OPEX. All supported by the largest 24/7 service crew in the world.
