Know-how and experience in the hire market

Published:  24 February, 2022

Alongside its wide portfolio of lifting and handling equipment for sale, HOIST & WINCH says it is currently promoting its extensive know-how and experience in the hire market. The company says it is an expert in turnkey hire projects involving air- and electric-powered hoists, overseeing installation, commissioning, testing and certification tasks as part of a complete service package that provides genuine market differentiation.

Through its turnkey offer, Hoist & Winch can expertly advise customers on the most suitable equipment for their lifting requirements, making precise arrangements to ensure safe and reliable operation. This advice is particularly important for air hoists, where the selection of a portable diesel compressor or the checking of plant air supply is necessary. Here, requirements will include specifying the optimal operating pressure, air volume, and hose length and bore size, as well as preparing and lubricating the air supply.

Hoist & Winch completed a notable turnkey hire project over the recent Christmas period. A customer within the building materials industry hired a special 12t swl (safe working load), twin air-powered, trolley-based air hoist for lifting and replacing a large gear weighting 9t. This type of hoist was necessary to spread the 9t load over a greater distance of the monorail beam bottom flange than a standard hoist trolley arrangement would allow.

From initial consultation and equipment specification - through installation, commissioning and testing - to issuing the LOLER report, delivering handover training and providing maintenance support for the eight-week hire period, Hoist & Winch acted as the technical partner at every stage of the project. The company says, this customer, like all of its customers, found that the turnkey hire service from Hoist & Winch provided assurance of a high-performance, safety-certified solution delivered on-time and on-budget. Visit for further information and to view recent case studies
