Modulift ready to meet global demand
Well known for its specialist lifting equipment and modular spreader beams, the UK-based engineering company, Modulift has just moved into a new purpose-built factory as a response to global demand for its products, including the well-established Australian market.
Founded by technical director, Sue Spencer in 2002 and co-owned with managing director, Sarah Spivey, the company strongly believes in designing products that help to make potentially hazardous working environments safer, and the market has responded.
Each spreader beam design in the MOD series has been proof load tested in Modulift’s in-house compression test rig and designed in accordance with multiple global industry standards, including Australian Compliance AS 4991 – 2004: Lifting Devices.
Manufactured in the UK and distributed across Australia via Bullivants and Maxirig, the company’s products are readily available. Modulift also has a strong reputation for its technical expertise and advises on specially adapted rigging configurations.
Managing director, Sarah Spivey said: “Moving into the Australian market has been a very successful decision. I joined Modulift in 2007 and the company was already very active supplying spreaders to a high customised standard, including beams for the Gorgon Project – one of the world’s largest natural gas projects in Western Australia, supplying 2.5m homes with electricity. Establishing ourselves firmly with stock with local distributors has now cemented our strong reputation among contractors and crane companies.”
