UK based heavy lift planning and project management company Notus Heavy Lift Solutions has launched a new business - Notus Contract Lifting - to deliver contract lifting, crane management and equipment handing services in Europe, North America and the Middle East. It is the fourth business within the Notus group and follows the acquisition of SWL Training in December.
The business will be run by managing director Scott Mitchell - most recently with Sarens UK and also Southern Cranes and Arcomet - supported by the directors of Notus Heavy Lift - James Mohammed and Wesley Walberg - along with senior technical manager Adam Thomas who has previously held similar positions at Radius, Osprey Heavy Lift and Baldwins Heavy Cranes.
“The new business will complement the Heavy Lift Solutions and Training businesses which are already successfully trading across three continents,” said Mitchell. “The world is changing, if you look at traditional businesses such as taxi cabs, hotels, advertising and retail, these industries are now being dominated by companies such as Uber, Airbnb, Google and Amazon, none of which own the goods that make up their services, but are still able to offer a brilliant service product that keeps clients returning.”
“We believe there is are growing opportunities within the traditional crane hire/contract lifting sector operating a similar business model, with the number one focus on service to the end user to create a full turnkey package. The emphasis will be on top quality engineering, lift planning and supervision, which ultimately will result in safer lifting operations on all of our jobs.”
Notus has its head office in Liverpool with a regional office in Sittingbourne, Kent and project offices in Cannington (Hinckley Point C) and Euston (HS2), London along with New York and Oman.
