Lifting Systems was formed in 1994, specialising in the erection and testing of overhead cranes and structures. They soon moved to a factory on the Brackmills Industrial Estate, adding an additional purpose built fabrication facility a few years later. Recently, Lifting Systems have moved to a 2.5 acre site with a 40,000 SQ/Ft factory unit consisting of 3 Manufacturing Bays and a service bay. The new site has been named Crown Works.

Crane manufacturing and kit building is well established in the UK, and so a conscious decision was made to specialise in the manufacture of crane supporting steelwork suitable for supporting all makes of crane.

We have a policy of training our operatives to the highest level that has opened doors to high profile customers, who insist on impeccable standards from contractors working on their premises.

Method statements, Risk assessments and Lift plans.

All steelwork is blasted, primed and fabricated in our own factory. We deliver to site using our tractor units and trailers. We transport our fork trucks and scissor lifts along with up to 100t of calibrated test weights. This enables us to be in full control of the installation process and dispenses with the need to hire-in equipment.

Our site crews with fully equipped mobile workshop vans, ensure that we can address most unforeseen problems that may arise on site.
