The partnership will see Mercia Lifting Gear become a distributor of Multisec spreader beam products, making them immediately available for purchase to its current client base.

It will also see the two businesses work closely together to develop their product ranges and create a solid base for research and development, further improving their offerings. This will start with an internal knowledge workshop run by Durham Lifting in late October.

Amanda Gardiner, managing director of Durham Lifting, said: “Durham Lifting is very excited about its partnership with Mercia Lifting Gear. We share a deep passion for our profession, what we do, and who we are. We see this as an amazing opportunity to share our expertise and our amazing Multisec product with more businesses.”

Paul Clarke, lead engineer at Mercia Lifting Gear, added: “We are thrilled to announce that we have become a distributor of Multisec modular spreader beams. The two businesses have developed a great relationship, and this partnership will allow both businesses to thrive. We are sharing experiences and already applying the building blocks for long-term development.”

Both businesses said that with around 100 years of experience and professionalism in lifting gear across the two teams, they share expertise and knowledge on topics such as crane professionalism, development of products, and installation.
