Lifting is a modern art
LGS Port Talbot were tasked with helping Davies Cranes with the delicate lift and move of the well reported Banksy image which appeared a few months ago on the corner of a garage. The depot supplied spreaders, slings, chain blocks and tirfors to ensure a smooth lift and unload at it’s new home. More information can be found here –https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-48434084
When DIY SOS called our Redruth branch this week needing a Genie lift we were on hand to supply. Good work!
Finished in new record time!
Congratulations to Jemma and Lauren for completing the Talisker Atlantic rowing challenge in a new record time for female pairs. Very impressive. After 50 days at sea in a small rowing boat, they stepped foot on Antigua, tired and sore, but relishing the experience and raising a large sum of money for charity. LGS was proud to help sponsor their journey by providing their marine safety equipment, with the team offering the following:
” LGS very kindly supplied us with all our essential safety equipment, from medical kits, immersion suits, harnesses, a life raft and more, for our 3000 mile row across the Atlantic Ocean. We used our harnesses every hour of every day and were very grateful of their presence. Luckily we did not have to use the majority of our safety equipment and we enjoyed a smooth, quick crossing of the ocean. However we felt safe in the knowledge we were prepared with the help of LGS and equipment should anything have gone wrong. Thank you LGS for being our safety partner board.”
