GGR Gulf’s self-contained vacuum lifters are capable of lifting glass and composite panels of up to 2000kg with ease.
GGR has a wealth of experience in a huge variety of industries including construction, aviation, offshore and railway infrastructure. The lifting specialist has previously worked on large scale projects in the UK and across Europe such Houses of Parliament, the Tate Modern, Oxford University, The Royal Opera House and Heathrow Airport, amongst others, and will be bringing this expertise to its work in the Gulf region.
Gary Jones, Project Manager of GGR Gulf, commented: “Despite the general slowdown in construction due to the financial crisis, there is still a certain confidence and ample opportunity in the Gulf region. Having worked on everything from large scale commercial buildings to aviation engineering and maintenance, GGR’s lifting equipment and industry expertise is perfect for this area. Our specialism lifting in restricted access environments – which has lead us to work down narrow man-holes, on top of skyscrapers and everything in between – means we’ve usually got the equipment and knowledge for even the most unusual jobs. We’re eager to bring our wealth of experience to the Gulf region.”
GGR Gulf was formed as a joint arrangement between GGR Group and Oriental Specialist Lifting in order to deliver cost effective lifting solutions for customers across the Gulf region.
