This expansion has been driven by growth in customer demand for bespoke products, said Modulift managing director Sarah Spivey.

“In order to keep up with customer demand, we are expanding our engineering division in order to concentrate on research and product development,” said Spivey.

“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.”

Sue Caples, Modulift’s operations director, added: “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.

“We are also planning on doubling the size of our current team, enabling us to answer customer enquiries even more quickly than before.”
