Safety conscious approach to lifting equipment

The Victoria and Albert Museum in Kensington opened in 1852 and is home to one of the world’s largest collections of art and design. It houses a permanent collection of over 2.2 million individual artefacts. We were thrilled when they contacted us and asked if we could design and manufacture a bespoke lifting cage.

Sedex is an ethical trade membership organisation
that helps businesses to uphold responsible business
practices and source responsibly. Sedex provide us with tools and services that help us map and understand our supply chain and work with our suppliers to ensure they are upholding safe and ethical practices.

As a Sedex member here are some of the things we are working towards: no use of child labour, safe working conditions, no form of discrimination and managing environmental impact.

How to enhance workplace wellness


Our fast-paced industrial world often means that long hours of standing are becoming commonplace. Business owners should be aware that the well-being of their employees is always paramount. Studies have shown that prolonged standing at benches, workstations or assembly points can lead to many health issues, including backaches, knee problems and general fatigue.

Protecting electrical equipment during recharging periods

We were tasked with the challenge to offer a bespoke solution to design and manufacture a suitable steel cabinet that would provide the charging ability, whilst the batteries were contained within an easy to lock secure cabinet that had vision panels fitted, so that security staff could view the contents. Tool and equipment theft has become a major problem for all industries throughout the country and the loss in particular of electrically charged equipment has now reached almost epidemic proportions.
