Following a deal with Gunnebo Industries, Street Crane Company, the largest industrial crane company in the UK is now able to offer a fuller service to customers in Northern Ireland. Under the agreement Gunnebo (incorporating W H Scott and Sons), based in Mallusk, will have six Street Crane trained engineers on hand 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, for crane installation, service and support.
The Gunnebo team will operate from dedicated vehicles, some of which are ‘workshops on wheels’, equipped with load cells, test equipment, spare parts and work benches. In addition, Gunnebo will hold in stock a range of the most popular sizes of Street Crane hoists to meet users’ most pressing needs.
Steve Hirst, Street Crane sales manager for Northern Ireland, will be working in parallel with Bertie Seaton, Gunnebo’s Northern Ireland manager based at the Gunnebo Mallusk operations centre. “This is great news for our local customers who will now have first class technical support and service throughout the working life of their Street Crane lifting equipment,” explained Steve Hirst.
