UK-headquartered Osprey Group has appointed Simon Massey as managing director of its heavy lift division.

Massey joins Osprey with more than 35 years’ industry experience gained from a range of companies, most recently Sarens UK, Weldex and Demag. “This is something I’ve been building up to – leading a team of people who want to find new ways we can use heavy lift equipment, safely, for the much larger and heavier assets we’re having to transport and install now, in every sector,” he said.

Osprey has opened new premises in the UK recently and, is deploying its owner-operated fleet of cranes, barges, and SPMTs in support of ever-more complex projects. “I’m looking forward to engaging with clients as soon as possible on their plans, to show how our heavy lift equipment can be configured and deployed in ways that can even reduce project costs,” Massey added.
