Lifting equipment specialists, Hoist UK and its sister company, Truss UK, have relocated to larger premises, a significant expansion and one which will enable both companies to move forward with their growth plans.
The new headquarters, comprising offices, specialised workshop areas and warehousing facilities, are situated on the Tarran Way Industrial Estate in Moreton, a location chosen for its accessibility to the M53 and UK motorway network.
The expansion reflects both Hoist UK and Truss UK’s continued success and subsequent growth over the past twelve months, a year which has seen developments in staffing numbers, product range and a number of new contracts being obtained both in the UK and overseas.
Hoist UK is a leading distributor of the Verlinde industrial and entertainment lifting equipment range, together with utilising its in-house skills by offering complete design, manufacture and installation services for lifting equipment requirements.
Tony Dickson, Director at Hoist UK and Truss UK, expressed his delighted at the expansion: “We have grown as business over the last nine years by keeping to a robust and achievable business plan. The new premises are ideal for our growing sales, design and administration teams, with meeting rooms for training or client project meetings and will provide more space for production and manufacturing.
“We have expanded our hoist preparation and testing area as well as increasing our warehousing facility, so we are all set for the further growth planned over the next five years.”
Fellow Director Paul Jordan added: “We are confident that both Hoist UK and Truss UK, and more importantly, our customers, will benefit greatly from our new base and increased engineering capability.”
Wirral Chamber of Commerce CEO, Paula Basnett congratulated Hoist UK and Truss UK on their expansion. She commented: “It is always rewarding when I see a Wirral Chamber of Commerce member being successful but also a Wirral based business moving forward, particularly those which are providing key manufacturing skills and products to a global marketplace.
“I am delighted that both Hoist UK and Truss UK are demonstrating this and I wish them both even greater success over the coming years in their new business home.”
The facility was officially opened by Les Rowlands, The Mayor of Wirral, on 6 November 2015 together with the Hoist UK / Truss UK team.
