The collaboration means that 90% of Elite’s cranes will now be powered by GH Crane Components while Elite will continue to manufacture all structures – such as steelworks – in-house. The structures will carry the official Made in Britain trademark.

Elite Cranes managing director Lee Roby said that the company, which has branches in the north-west and north-east of England, was keen to establish a formal partnership with GH Cranes.

GH Cranes manufactures hoists, cranes, components and other lifting elements. It claims to have been involved in more than 120,000 installations in over 70 countries since its inception in 1958.

The company recently revealed the GH70e, the first electric marine boat hoist from its e-Motion series. The product is aimed at customers with marinas and boatyards who specialise in bringing boats into dry dock for repairs and winter storage.
