The business, which also includes the Lifting Projects UK, Steelwise and Lifting Gear Training UK companies, has grown steadily since its inception in 2007 and now operates from 11 UK locations. Naylor brings a wealth of experience and proven capability in the European lifting industry and from the multi-outlet rental model.

Naylor said: “What the existing LG UK team has delivered in the last 14 years, against the backdrop of a challenging and somewhat mature market, is outstanding. I am thrilled to be joining the business at this stage of its growth. I have been most impressed with the ownership of the business; they are hard working and committed to growing their business in spite of the challenges we see.”
