New £3m hoist factory
22 September 2014
Visitors from around the world joined Street Crane to celebrate the opening of its new £3m hoist factory this September. Street is said to be the UK’s largest crane and hoist manufacturer and around 70% of its £35m turnover is derived from the sale of hoists and crane kits to overseas manufacturers.
MD, Andrew Pimblett, commented: "We have worked hard to build an international network of nearly 90 overseas distributors in 48 countries. To support our global network we have continually invested in the business, creating products such as our ZX hoist range to meet mainstream lifting needs up to 80 tonnes.
"This is a product specifically developed for world markets and is designed to conform to multiple international standards and be adaptable to demanding end user requirements.”
