Modulift teams up with Maxirig

20 September 2018


Australian lifting and rigging gear specialist Maxirig will stock Modulift’s full range of standard modular spreader beams at its headquarters in Victoria, and through its distributor network, after signing an agreement with the UK-based below-the-hook equipment manufacturer.

Maxirig provides products and expertise to a range of clients in mining, construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, and other sectors. The company is located at Breakwater, a suburb of Geelong, a port city which is to the south-west of Melbourne and which is currently enjoying a construction boom, says Modulift.

Maxirig will stock a full inventory of standard spreader beams covering a range of capacities up to 100t, including the MOD 70H, which offers up to 100t at 8.5m and lower capacities at 14m.

Sarah Spivey, managing director at Modulift, said: “It is well documented that execution of our business model and growth strategy is reliant upon our diligence in choosing the right regional representatives and the extent to which we can support them as they deliver our products to their local marketplaces. In Maxirig I’m confident that we have secured a partner that can help us make significant strides in a far afield, but hugely important, market.”

Nathan Van Berkel, general manager at Maxirig, said: “We’re excited about taking delivery of the first batch of stock, which represents an important moment for our existing and prospective customers looking for spreader beams and below-the-hook solutions for their varied applications. Modulift’s equipment is already renowned in the region but being able to offer it as an off-the-shelf rigging solution is a game-changer for the marketplace.”
