3 March 2020


Uperio Group significantly reinforces its position in the United Kingdom with the acquisition of Highsparks TCS from Scotland. Highsparks will be integrated into the Uperio Group and operate as a subsidiary of Skyline Arcomet.

Highsparks will continue to operate across the UK as a rental, distribution and service provider. It will keep operating from their new premises in Lanark, Scotland with the current team of employees. It will progressively take over all the Uperio Group activities in the North of the UK.

“Bringing more great people to the company is a great way to start 2020. The company continues to grow and it is important we bring in the right people as part of that process. We have worked with the team at Highsparks for some time now, and we know that they will continue to prosper within the Uperio Group,” said Darren Whitford, managing director at Skyline Arcomet.

“I am thrilled to be part of one of the largest tower crane service companies in the world and consolidate our position in the UK market. As part of the Uperio Group, we will have much stronger capabilities to satisfy our customers growing needs,” said Shane Crozier, founder and owner of Highsparks TCS who will remain as managing director of the company.

“For the Uperio Group, this is a geographical expansion within the UK, an important market in Europe and the opportunity to partner with a solid local team. It also illustrates our renewed growth strategy in Europe,” said Philippe Cohet, CEO of the Uperio Group.

The company plans include development of a new yard and additional sales and service personnel to support the larger rental operations, develop the distribution business and maintain a high level of customer satisfaction.
