April 22 - In a time of financial uncertainty and with a decline in engineering orders, global engineering company Modulift is experiencing its busiest period ever, and as a result is expanding its production division, alongside developing new distributio

"The number of enquiries for custom designed products has continued to grow, flouting the current economic slowdown," says Sarah Spivey, managing director of Modulift.

"In order to keep up with customer demand, we are expanding our engineering division in order to concentrate on research and product development. This is a very exciting development, as we are planning on expanding our product range to include high capacity lifting beams, link bar systems, trunnion shackles and sling release systems. For our customers, this means greater convenience, reduced expense and quicker rigging times."

With over 20 years experience in both onshore and offshore lifting, Modulift believe that its team are extremely well placed to provide the technical knowledge to advise customers what their best options are. Whether there is an offset centre of gravity or they require multiple-point lifts, more customers are discovering that they have complex requirements that standard lifting solutions can't accommodate.

"When bespoke products are required, we work very closely with the customer to develop a mutually agreeable solution that meets both their budget and technical needs," continues Sue Caples, Modulift's operations director. "We are also planning on doubling the size of our current team, enabling us to 
answer customer enquiries even more quickly than before."
