Our team provides support with lifting expertise and equipment right throughout a project – whether long or short-term, large or small, wet or dry.
We understand that effective lifting and access solutions can significantly reduce the total cost of a project. Our team has knowledge, experience and access to Australia’s largest fleet of speciality cranes and equipment, to help achieve these efficiencies.
For a personalised approach, our team will work collaboratively with customers to design and co-ordinate the safest and most efficient lifting plan for a project.
For the demands of large-scale projects, support is also provided from our specialised Major Projects team. This team supports our customers with the big engineering decisions, handling everything from safety management plans, project risks, quality assurance, and selection of the right cranes, mobilisation plans and speciality resources.
Our professional and expert team of more than 550 people across Australia also includes:
Crane Operators: provided for all mobile and crawler cranes on a wet hire basis.
Riggers and Dogmen: provided for lifts with mobile and crawler cranes on a wet hire basis. This means that engineered lifting solutions are optimised at every opportunity for our customers.
Mechanics and Fitters: our competent mechanical staff maintain mobile and crawler cranes and operate mobile repair services for cranes on any location or at our depots.
Supervisors and Engineers: our trained supervisors have extensive knowledge in safety, equipment selection and engineering expertise specialising in CAD designs; they provide peace of mind to ensure the job gets done on time.

Training & development
Investment in developing our people is a key strategic priority. Many of our supervisors have completed a Certificate IV in Frontline Management, with key projects generated from this program already implemented in the business.
We continue to invest in training and development for our operational staff to ensure operating tickets are maintained, safety standards are upheld, customer site inductions are current and operators are vocationally competent to meet the needs of our customers.
