In November of last year Lift Technology undertook with Dublin City Council to transport to and from the UK “the Dublin’s Lord Mayor’s Carriage”.
Lift Tech’s expertise was required to load and transport this over 200 year old carriage to join hundreds of other coaches, carriages, carts and other vehicles in the 800th Lord Mayor Show in London.
The Lord Mayor's Coach left Dublin city with Lift Technology for the first time in its history to take pride of place in Ireland's participation in the three mile procession through the heart of the City of London.
The involvement of the Lord Mayor’s Coach in the procession was the highlight of the Ireland Week in London which was launched by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny at the Irish Embassy in London.
Lift Tech introduced the 40/60 Versa-Lift fork truck to their fleet. This compact fork truck is capable of lifting 27 ton and comes with an attachable lifting jib capable of lifting to 8m. Attachable ballast weights make the truck ideal for working in confined spaces.
“The Versa-Lift is a unique forklift in which the frame extends in order to achieve greater capacities and is equipped with a removable hydraulic boom. The Versa-Lift was designed specifically for moving heavy machinery smoothly and safely on solid surfaces for riggers,” explained the company's transport manager Fran Byrne.
Lift Technology was set up by Reg Brogan, and today, his son Gary Brogan and son-in-law Fran Byrne oversee the running of the business. Very much a family affair, Gary's son, Sean, recently became the third generation of the Brogan family to work in the every-growing concern. Overall, Lift Technology has ten employees on its payroll.
“We're a family-based company and we've a loyal customer base. My father-in-law started the business 30 years ago and we've built it up over that amount of time. We're specialists in what we do and we have the equipment to back it up.”
From their offices and workshop at Rathcoole, County Dublin, they stock a large range of reconditioned lift trucks from 1 – 20 ton for sale or lease.
Trucks are fully reconditioned and re-painted to factory standard. The finished unit is a fork truck that looks new, comes with the same warranty and half the price. This is very cost effective in the current economic climate.
From a service point of view, their service engineers can service your truck on site or they can arrange a replacement within hours if required.
All of their drivers have all the necessary licenses and qualifications to carry out their work, including manual handling, safe passes, forklift licenses and rigger tickets. The long-established company holds public and employer’s liability and insurance at every level and always take health and safety seriously and will continue to invest time in this area.
“We've just taken on another driver answered Fran when asked: if there were any plans for further expansion? “Thankfully, we're busy at the moment, and have a loyal customer base. There’s definitely been a pick up in the last 12 months.”
“We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and suppliers for their continued support.”
