UK spider lift rental company MBS has purchased the trademark and web address of Spiderlift.
While it has no plans to change the corporate name, MBS will in future adopt the Spiderlift trading name from the start of the new year. The trademark was previously owned by Steve Hadfield, originally as a rental company, but following the sale of its fleet and customer contracts to Lifterz in 2014, he used it as the name for his sales business which took on the CMC dealership for the UK.
The move by MBS is part of an expansion programme which has seen it move to new premises in Essex, which include a grade two listed barn with integrated offices, add a number of new machines, including a 26 metre Hinowa Lightlift 26.14, a 30 metre telescopic boom Platform Basket Spider 30T, and two Falcon lifts, the 33 metre FS330-Z and a 42 metre FS420C. It has also taken delivery of two new Iveco Daily highly fuel efficient mini articulated trucks, which can transport units weighing up to five tonnes.
The company was listed as the fifth largest spider lift rental fleet in the UK with 34 units, and as the company puts it the largest independently owned spider lift rental specialist in the country.
