Record jack numbers boost order book

We are enjoying record-breaking demand for our flagship lifting jacks, securing orders for more than 160 already this year.

Most of the jacks specified so far are being built for UK rail depots, although sets will also be heading to France and New Zealand.

As all of our lifting and handling products are assembled in South Yorkshire, using parts sourced from local suppliers, the benefits of this significant boost to our order book will be felt across the region.

Sales manager, Lindsey Mills, said: “Thanks to continued investment in UK infrastructure, demand for our jacks has surged and with various franchise developments and depot enhancements expected in the next couple of years, we can see plenty of opportunities to build on this success.”

Our jacks are used in some of the world’s most advanced rail maintenance facilities, enabling trains of up to 13 cars in length to be lifted without decoupling. In addition to building new jacks, we will also be refurbishing a set of 20, currently in operation at a UK rail depot, to enhance their productivity and extend their useful lifespan.
