Ainscough has won a five year contract from Shell UK to supply mobile cranes with operators for general maintenance and for shutdowns at its Ellesmere Port refinery in Cheshire.

Ainscough is now in the middle of a five-week shutdown at Shell’s Stanlow facility, where it is providing up to 50 cranes a day with capacities up to 800t.

Ainscough also recently secured ISO 14001 environmental accreditation.
