The Crosby Group has acquired UK-based safety equipment manufacturer BlokCorp and launched a Technology Solutions business unit.

UK-based BlokCorp produces BlokCam and BlokAlert – camera and alert systems for tower and mobile cranes. They provide crane operators with enhanced visual and audio capabilities than enable safer and more productive lifting.

Following the acquisition, Crosby formed its Technology Solutions business unit. The division, inclusive of BlokCorp, Crosby Straightpoint, and the strategic collaboration with Verton, will “enable a heightened focus on creating disruptive and integrated lifting technologies”, the company said.

Furthermore, the BlokCorp portfolio will be rebranded under the Cosby BlokCam banner.

Robert Desel, ceo of Crosby Group, said: “We are very excited to expand our technology offering with BlokCorp, a pioneer in delivering solutions for safer lifting operations.”
