Posted on 8 Jun 2010 by The Manufacturer

Heavy lifting equipment specialists Modulift has revealed it is experiencing its busiest period ever and as a result is expanding production and distribution.

“The number of enquiries for custom designed products has continued to grow, flouting the current economic slowdown,” says Sarah Spivey, Managing Director of Modulift. “In order to keep up with customer demand, we are expanding our engineering division in order to concentrate on research and product development. This is a very exciting development, as we are planning on expanding our product range to include high capacity lifting beams, link bar systems, trunnion shackles and sling release systems. For our customers, this means greater convenience, reduced expense and quicker rigging times.”

With over 20 years experience in both onshore and offshore lifting, the Modulift team is well placed to provide technical knowledge and reliable advice to anyone with lifting needs. Whether there is an offset centre of gravity or they require multiple-point lifts, lifting requirements can often have complex requirements that standard lifting solutions can’t accommodate. As a result, Modulift also provides a tailored solutions offering.

“When bespoke products are required, we work very closely with the customer to develop a mutually agreeable solution that meets both their budget and technical needs,” says Sue Caples, Modulift’s Operations Director. “We are also planning on doubling the size of our current team, enabling us to answer customer enquiries even more quickly than before.”

The Modulift range comprises 16 systems, which provide lifting capacity for weights between 2 – 5000 tonnes and lengths from 200mm – 53m. The system is used for the smallest maintenance work to the largest lifting jobs in many industry sectors.
