Crosby Group has acquired Spain-based Airpes.

Airpes develops and manufactures under-the-jib equipment, as well as lifting, handling, and weighing solutions for customers in the wind energy and industrial markets. It will be part of Crosby’s expanding technology solutions portfolio, which includes Crosby BlokCam, Crosby Straightpoint, and the company’s stake in Verton.

Robert Desel, ceo of Crosby, said: “This acquisition expands the Crosby Group’s industry leading role and commitment to supporting safe and efficient lifting, rigging, and securement for the renewables market.”

Josep Compte, managing director and co-founder of Airpes, added: “This is the next exciting stage of our journey. Leveraging the Crosby Group’s global footprint, technical field support and training team and world-class hardware, together we will bring Airpes’ solutions to more sites and make the lifting and renewables industries safer and more efficient.”
