John Sutch growth ramps up with £3.7m investment

December 5, 2017


John Sutch Cranes continues to drive forward by investing £3.7million into new fleet and machinery.

The long established, market leading North West firm continues to consolidate its presence across all sectors including the construction, civil engineering and oil and gas industries, purchasing nine new machines.

The acquisition includes Six Axle Spierings, a mobile tower crane that is extremely flexible and can be used in a range of lifting jobs. Hayley Sutch, MD Designate of John Sutch Cranes explained: “These cranes are consistently in high demand and is probably the most popular choice due to their flexible and versatile nature lifting up to 3 tonnes and with a maximum radius of 60 metres. Adding these to our fleet ties in with our wider growth strategy across all sectors.

“We are committed to operating a fleet where no one machine is older than five years. This is incredibly important to us, ensuring we are consistently up to date with the latest technological advances affecting key areas such as health and safety. Whilst we invest in our fleet we continue to offload older models to sustain this approach.”

A new 250t Terex crane and 300t Liebherr crane supports the firm growth in the heavy cranes sector. Hayley continued: “We are driving forward our presence in the heavy crane sector and following our purchase last year of the 350t machine, are keen to add further weight to our fleet.  These two additions will undoubtedly help consolidate our position in this sector and allow us to continue to penetrate this market.

The 70t Tadano, a truck mounted vehicle, forms the final piece in the purchase programme, providing greater flexibility for travelling whilst also complementing the existing 45t truck.

Hayley added: “Throughout our 40 years in business, we’ve grown to become one of the leading firms of our kind and the North West and have built a strong reputation in terms of fleet, service delivery and personnel. We recognise that we must make strides forward in terms of investment if we are to sustain our market leading position, whist enjoying continued expansion.”
