Heavy Cranes

To suit your individual requirements, our professional team is on hand to offer on site management, single point contracts, CAD drawings, full risk assessments and all other necessary supporting services. With all heavy lifting procedures safety is, naturally, of paramount importance. From start to finish we ensure that all aspects of each lift are carefully managed to provide a safe and efficient operation. We place a priority on safety and have completed an OSHAS 18002 approved management system for accreditation in 2009.

Our fleet of heavy cranes, both telescopic and strut jib models can be deployed anywhere in the country on a twenty four hour, seven day service. Our modern fleet offers a lifting capacity of up to five hundred tonnes on a single rig, with co-ordinated tandem and triple lifts for even heavier loads.

Our heavy crane managers are suitably qualified as appointed persons and banksman / slingers and have operated on many projects on a consultancy basis. We can also supply suitably qualified personnel to assist in operations.
