The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and Erkende Keurbedrijven Hijs & Hefmiddelen (EKH) have partnered up to combine their expertise and support each other’s membership.

LEEA is a global trade association representing over 1,200 members in more than 70 countries. Meanwhile, EKH is an umbrella organisation for lifting equipment inspection companies, with 65 members based in the Netherlands.

Ross Moloney, ceo of LEEA, said: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with EKH, an organisation that is highly regarded and equipped with the forward vision necessary to help support the global lifting industry.

“In addition to being beneficial for our members, this move is about putting together a network of partners who together can make the argument for enhanced standards worldwide, which is a crucial aspect of LEEA’s international approach.”
