Pro Lifting UK Ltd is delighted to announce that it’s founder and hugely respected crane industry expert, Chris Crowley, has signed a long-term contract to oversee the Operational side of the business through a period of planned significant growth. As part of this contractual arrangement, Chris will remain a shareholder in the business too.
Chris commented, ‘’As Pro Lifting grew I realised I needed partners to help manage the business. Chris Dear and Mark Garwood (Pro Lifting’s Sales Director), invested in Pro Lifting and became majority shareholders. I’m delighted with this deal, which not only secures my future to oversee our future growth plans but retains my stake in Pro Lifting as a shareholder and owner. It really is a win-win deal.’’

Jules commented ‘’Chris’s knowledge and passion for the crane industry is second to none, and he is widely regarded as a leading figure in the sector. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with him for almost a year now and look forward to continuing the incredible success story that is Pro Lifting. Our growth has been truly exceptional, and I’m sure it will continue to be so as Contractors show a desire for a more fully integrated lifting management service.’’
Chris added, ‘’I founded Pro Lifting with a vision that there was a requirement in the market for a more comprehensive lifting management service, that focussed heavily on safety. Our core service is the provision of Appointed Persons, Crane Supervisors and Slingers, but we provide teams, not individuals who are used to working together and are bought in to our philosophy. Put simply, that means all our staff, and everyone affected by us carrying out our services on site, go home safely to their families at the end of the working day. We don’t just take responsibility for tower crane lifting, we also are responsible for all lifting on site. All documentation is uploaded at the time of operation and is available to our Contractor clients in real time. It’s transparent and therefore safer that way.’’
