Lifting Systems, a company specialising in the erection and testing of overhead cranes and structures, has agreed a new finance facility with Aldermore which will help support the business’s plans for future expansion.

Lifting Systems designs and manufactures gantry structures for a range of cranes at its Northampton premises which consist of a large factory unit with three manufacturing bays and a service bay, enabling the company to blast, prime and build all of its own steelwork onsite.

Lifting Systems has been operating for 21 years and currently employs over 40 people. The finance facility from Aldermore will allow the company to continue to expand and update its warehouse and manufacturing unit.

Charlotte Inwood, Transport Manager at Lifting Systems, explained:

“The new facility will give us a great deal of freedom to increase investment in the business. We are planning enhancements which will improve our efficiency, productivity, and output. We are really excited about the growth opportunities ahead of us.

“We had used finance from Aldermore in the past and were always impressed with the straightforward service we received. They have a customer-focused, friendly approach, which, along with their really good reputation, meant it was a natural choice to use them again.”

Jamie O’Neill, Regional Sales Manager, Invoice Finance at Aldermore, said:

“Lifting Systems is already well established as a market leader in the crane and lifting industry. It has a strong track record of profitability and its directors are true leaders in their field.

“With a little support from Aldermore, Lifting Systems is now well placed to take the business to the next level by increasing capacity and ultimately turnover.”
