LGH acquires Straightpoint rental fleet

16. April 2019 | Comments (0)

UK based Lifting Gear Hire - LGH - has acquired the rental fleet of load cell and weighing equipment manufacturer Straightpoint.

The acquisition includes Straightpoint’s 100 tonne Radiolink plus load cells, compression load cells up to 300 tonnes capacity. The move follows Straightpoint’s acquisition by US based lifting gear manufacturer Crosby in January.

Lifting Gear Hire managing director Colin Naylor said: “The Straightpoint range of load cells is world renowned for its pioneering technology, durability, and general standout quality. Straightpoint’s decision to exit the rental business presented us with a huge opportunity to exploit new markets and target a wider demographic of customer. Furthermore, in entrusting LGH with the legacy of its rental fleet, Straightpoint has endorsed that we are uniquely equipped to oversee supply of the range as a specialist provider of lifting and other equipment.”

Straightpoint global business development director load monitoring solutions David Ayling added: “We are always happy to partner with LGH around the world. Only recently we worked closely with the US operation as it initiated a major overhaul of its load cell fleet and placed a landmark order for our technologies. There are many synergies in our joint commitment to safety and we’re sure LGH will uphold the principles of knowing the load, which remains of paramount importance in the rental marketplace, like all others.”
