IPS EXE Rise D8+ Hoist Investment

IPS have taken delivery of 60 1000kg and 40 500kg EXE Rise D8+ chain hoists adding to their growing inventory of EXE TECHNOLOGY systems.

Impact Production Services (IPS) offer rental supply in staging, rigging, lighting, video, sound and power. The additional range of EXE units has increased stock to their rigging portfolio and rental fleet. The decision to strengthen their EXE offering was to meet increasing demands from their client base.

Having purchased multiple 2000kg double reeved hoists several years ago, the units have proved a workhorse and generated a return on investment as frequently commissioned on direct IPS jobs and rental projects which is an integral part of the IPS business.

IPS Owner and Key Account Director, James Mason said: “Our initial investment into EXE Rise D8+ chain hoists was around 5 years ago when we purchased a quantity of 2000kg double reeved units. We have been impressed with the quality and performance of the hoists, and they have been playing an integral role within our Roof Structure range ever since. They have been on some of our biggest projects to date and have been popular with the crew and proved very reliable in operation.”

“The 500kg and 1000kg versions of the EXE Rise units were a logical next step when looking to replace our existing motor fleet, a decision reinforced by lots of requests for EXE Rise from our Trade Hire customer base. The D8+ rating is an appealing specification, making the hoists easy to satisfy the requirements for sub-hire on a wide range of projects. The compact body dimensions and reasonable weight (even when fitted with the IPS specification 25m HOL chain configuration) allow these hoists to be rigged neatly, and the low voltage control fits neatly with our existing control systems. I am sure these will be popular units, and now with over 100 units in hire stock at IPS, and another investment phase on the horizon it is an exciting development for our rigging department,” Mason added.

The IPS team will be showcasing their full EXE Rise D8+ family of hoists at PLASA Leeds. IPS is located on Stand N-B05 in New Dock Hall and will demo the EXE TECHNOLOGY 2000kg, alongside their new 1000kg and 500kg EXE Rise D8+ chain hoists which will be on display at PLASA Focus.

“It’s great to continue our long-standing relationship with James and the team at IPS, having seen the company grow considerably over the last few years.  Further investment in EXE’s most popular flagship EXE Rise D8+ 1000kg hoist coupled with the smaller EXE Rise D8+ 500kg is a testament to the growth and popularity of the demand for the brand and the increase in enquiries IPS have experienced,” Dave Jeffery, UK Brand Manager at Area Four Industries UK said. “EXE sets an industry standard with efficiency, reliability, strong customer support and service, alongside valuable product training. The extended EXE range is the perfect complement to the company’s Rigging Department, where customer service and industry-leading products are paramount at IPS. We are delighted to build on our relationship with the IPS team strengthened by their trusted investment with EXE TECHNOLOGY and Area Four Industries.”
