New investment, totalling around £750,000, will improve workflow at the factory and expand the production area by around 30 percent. The expansion includes a new reception area for steel plate and improved despatch facilities. Machine shops and the hoist works have also been improved to streamline production while additional design offices have been provided for the development team.

To meet immediate production space needs in the main factory, the company has leased additional warehouse space to relocate its parts storage and some CNC machines. Plans are being prepared for the next development phase, including transfer of hoist production to a new dedicated facility and for new hoist test facilities.

Street Crane expects around 20 new jobs to be created in the expanded factory, of which many will be design engineers to support the intensive hoist development programme.

Commenting on the expansion, managing director Andrew Pimblett said, “Lean production has been a way of life at Street Crane for many years. From a constrained site we have been able to produce up to 400 cranes per year and over 2000 hoists. The new facilities will permit better workflow and boost productivity at a time when we are experiencing exceptional levels of interest worldwide in our factory-cranes, hoists and crane components.”

Additional Information
