Plant Movement

From a single commercial boiler to the entire contents of a manufacturing facility, we at 1st Industrial are here to facilitate your every need no matter the load or location.
We pride ourselves on our ability to accommodate our clients with the minimal of disruptions, even during the most challenging projects. We offer the leading lifting and moving techniques operated by a fully skilled and trained operative team.

We offer full crane hire ranging from a 1 ton Spider Crane to a 500 ton all terrain. We have a full range of in-house lifting equipment from 1 ton swl stair climbing robots, a wide range of gas and electric fork trucks to a fully certified store of lifting appliances. All lifting operations are fully supervised by our appointed persons and full comprehensive lift plans are supplied. All lifts are fully insured and all works carried out to the current regulations.
