The SafwayAtlantic division of suspended platform and scaffold company BrandSafway has acquired the assets and ongoing hoist business of Crane and heavy haulage company Sheedy Drayage. Sheedy Hoist runs a fleet of single and dual car hoists with capacities from one to 3.3 tonnes from Alimak, Champion, Avro and Raxtar and operates throughout the San Francisco Bay area, but has also carried out major projects in Nevada and Southern California.
Keith Lynch, president of SafwayAtlantic, said:“Sheedy Hoist is a great addition to our team. Acquiring a premium provider of high performance motorised solutions, along with our recent win of two major projects on the West Coast — Oceanwide Center in San Francisco and Grand Avenue in Los Angeles — is very exciting and reinforces our leadership position and full range of premium capabilities.”
Cambiz Gholamshahi general manager of Sheedy Hoist added: “The Sheedy Hoist team is looking forward to joining BrandSafway. We are eager to share our hoisting and motorised expertise with the BrandSafway team. This is an exciting opportunity for our employees to grow. At the same time, our customers will now be able to take advantage of a wider range of specialty products and services through BrandSafway.”
Art Eunson, president of commercial and industrial at BrandSafway said: “The Sheedy Hoist team has advanced experience in engineering, planning and estimating as well as on-site installation, operation, maintenance support, and repair. This acquisition will enhance our range and delivery of access technologies.”
