Equipment broken down?  Got something that needs repairing?

Bring it in - We'll do it for you.

From heavy duty plant that won't work anymore, to a blade that needs sharpening, we're happy to help with repairs and maintenance on your own equipment.

P.A.T. testing and H.A.V's testing can also be conducted to ensure that you are working with correctly certified equipment.

We are "LEEA" approved so we can also complete lifting equipment inspections and testing. Testing can be done either on site or in-house.

Contact your local depot or call 08700 508060.

We would be pleased to provide a quotation for any testing or repairs required on your own equipment.



We have a dedicated training division that's conveniently based at our Head Office in Motherwell and operates under the prestigious IPAF and PASMA banners.

Safety training is increasingly important. It's invaluable - especially in complying with ever-more stringent regulations. It's essential that personnel at all levels can ensure their own and others safety at work.

For years, we've placed a high priority on safety among our own staff. It's led to us developing a comprehensive range of interactive training courses (all with full certification upon completion) and facilities that are now available to our customers.

A list of our courses is given below. We can also offer special deals for block bookings, for more details, or to make a booking, please contact us on 08700 508060 or
