The UK’s leading lifting solutions specialist, GGR Group, has today officially unveiled the UK’s largest glass vacuum lifter to the market.
The Hydraulica 6000 boasts an impressive maximum lifting capacity of 6000kg. That gives it an extra 2000kg in lifting power over its nearest rival, the Hydraulica 4000, which is also available from GGR Group.
Now available for hire or purchase across the UK, the Hydraulica 6000 is suitable for lifting not only glass, but non-porous items such as plastic boards, ceramic plates and sheet metals.
Key features include:
The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that GGR Group has recently been awarded a Queen’s Award For Enterprise in International Trade.
The business was established in 1995 by brother and sister team Graeme and Gill Riley, who now hold the posts of chief executive and managing director respectively.
Chris Lord, operations director GGR Group, said: “We are delighted to introduce yet another ground-breaking product to the market.
“The launch of the Hydraulica 6000 shows we are staying ahead of the game and can offer our customers more vacuum lifting power than any other product currently available the UK. The only thing that comes close is the Hydraulica 4000, which is on our fleet anyway.
“Our company has always been about innovation, not imitation. Having the Hydraulica 6000 – the biggest on the market – cements our position as the market leader in our field.”
From small beginnings, GGR Group employs over 100 people across three UK sites; its headquarters in Oldham, near Manchester; Long Crendon in Buckinghamshire and at Blantyre in Scotland. The company also has a network of around 30 dealers across Europe and the United Arab Emirates.
Its machines have been used to install glass on prestigious construction projects including, among others; The Shard in London – one of the tallest buildings in western Europe – Manchester’s Lowry Centre and Bridgewater Hall, the Houses of Parliament, the Tate Modern art gallery, the Royal Opera House, Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood.
