Lifting Solutions Business Group Expands Rental Offering in the UK

Axel Johnson International’s business group Lifting Solutions strengthens its presence in the British rental market through the acquisition of Lifting Gear UK, a complete lifting solutions provider with focus on equipment hire.

“We are very enthusiastic about this opportunity to expand our offering within the lifting rental market, which we believe will be a corner stone in our future growth and increased focus on sustainable customer offers. Lifting Gear UK has a well-established brand and dedicated co-workers with a can-do attitude that we believe will contribute significantly to our group,” says Ralf Wiberg, Managing Director, Lifting Solutions.

Lifting Gear UK was founded in 2007 and has 12 strategically located depots across England and Scotland, from Glasgow in the north to Bridgwater in the south. Lifting Gear UK is a complete lifting solutions provider with focus on equipment hire, but their offering also includes product sales and services such as heavy lifting projects and bespoke design and fabrication. Their success and strong growth can be attributed to their solid product know-how and outstanding customer service that have supported them in building a loyal customer base.

“Becoming part of Lifting Solutions group will provide us with an excellent platform to further expand our presence and streamline our supply chain. We are looking forward to working closer with the group to further enhance our excellent customer service,” says Andrew Harrison, Managing Director of Lifting Gear UK.

“I believe that Axel Johnson International is the ideal owner to help grow Lifting Gear UK’s business and brand recognition. I am confident that the group’s culture and know-how of the industry will support further growth of the company,” comments Chris Turner, former shareholder and founder of Lifting Gear UK.
