Crane firm gets a lift on awards shortlist
Sheffield crane firm Street CraneXpress is on the shortlist for awards highlighting companies that have done the most to raise standards in the lifting industry.
Street CraneXpress is on a shortlist of five British companies in the running for the health and safety award, backed by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), the leading global representative body for the lifting industry.
The firm, in Tyler Street, Wincobank, is part of the award-winning specialist engineering group, SCX. It also has its own training centre, the SCX Academy, offering a four-year apprenticeship programme.
Street CraneXpress director, Ray Fletcher, said: “We place employee development at the forefront of the business, whether that employee is completely new to the industry or has been with the company for many years.
“Similarly, we are committed to ensuring technical advances in the industry are matched by the highest safety standards for our employees and customers.
“To be shortlisted for these awards – the first time the SCX Group has been in the running for international honours – is tribute to the efforts we have made and continue to make.”
Street CraneXpress specialises in ensuring the efficiency and safety of overhead travelling cranes, jib cranes and associated hoists.
