When Hexham Developments decided to start up in the North East to manufacture precision injection moulding products they desperately required a 5 tonne crane to handle tooling. This was likely to be in order of £25,000 to £35,000 to buy, fit and incorporate into their new building which was well over their intended budget. They turned to Engineered Solutions for help.
As a rule we do not normally handle second hand equipment unless we know its full service history and can trace its origins through an approved manufacturing source. However with over 40 years experience in the industry, Engineered Solutions were able to equate the importance of start up funding with the need for bringing down capital costs to affordable levels. As a result, our experts set about speaking to their colleagues in the crane industry to see what might be around on the second hand market. On this occasion Engineered Solutions found, in practically new condition, a 5 tonne semi-goliath Pelloby crane with its original factory finish in almost new condition.
For less than a third of the cost of a new crane, Hexham Developments solved its problem of lifting mould tools in and out of the injection moulding machine leaving them sufficient money to enable them to comfortably afford the storage equipment and hand forklift they needed to complete the perfect start up storage and handling solution at a rate they never expected to be able to afford.
