We specialise in high-risk projects and are the service provider of choice when it comes to heavy rigging and technically complex jobs.

Doggers and riggers need to constantly exercise good judgment and make informed decisions about the best solution for moving loads. Combining equipment to achieve the safety lifting result requires a high level of expertise and technical knowledge.
