    Since I started with my current company more than 4 years ago, we have used 1st Industrial for all our specialist lifting, … More delivery and positioning needs, from delivering commercial boilers in plant rooms with stairs and awkward access to delivering four separate 3-tonne heating pumps through floor openings to sub level plant rooms four storeys underground. 1st Industrial have always been professional, able and willing to help and I have no hesitation in using them again or recommended them to others, and we will certainly use them for all our specialist needs in the future.

They have undertaken oil strip out works, plant removal and plant movement for me and have always completed their works to a high standard. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others.
