Managing director of D&G Hoist & Crane Hire, Mr Gino DeCesare, said: “We have always had a long standing relationship with Alimak Hek and this investment certainly strengthens that relationship.
The efficiencies gained from standardising the equipment across one supplier, lowering maintenance costs by reducing breakdowns and improving the fleet age, and increasing utilisation by offering our customers the most reliable and technically advanced hoists were all important points in our decision to go with Alimak.
We look forward to introducing the new hoist range into our fleet. Purchasing the Alimak products is in line with D&G Hoist & Cranes policy of only buying quality, world renowned products which maintain high residual values in the years to come”.
