Alimak Hek Inc. last week announced ThyssenKrupp Safway as the newest national fleet owner to be added to its global owner network. Currently one of North America’s leading providers of scaffolding solutions and services, ThyssenKrupp Safway has expanded since its inception in 1936 to include more than 85 company-owned branches.
ThyssenKrupp Safway is expanding its motorized product offering to meet the advanced project needs of its customers. Alimak Hek will assist in supporting this demand by providing a product range that will include a combination of rack and pinion elevators and the HEK Modular System transport platforms, mast-climbing work platforms and material hoists. Alimak Hek’s equipment will offer ThyssenKrupp Safway’s customers a new level of versatility by providing vertical access solutions for personnel and materials in a wide variety of applications, including construction, power generation, offshore drilling, mining, chemical and refining.
"I have had the opportunity to evaluate several hoist, mast climber and elevator suppliers,” said Larry Mickwee, vice president of branch development for ThyssenKrupp Safway. “Alimak Hek has proven to be one of the best. They have provided us with state-of-the-art, high-quality products that have performed extremely well in the field. To back up those products they have offered best-in-class service, training and sales support."
“ThyssenKrupp Safway embodies the same valued philosophies that Alimak Hek proudly embraces to govern its business and set itself apart in the market,” said Paula Manning, business development manager for Alimak Hek. “We both strive to consistently deliver the highest quality product while focusing on outstanding customer service and an unmatched standard for safety.”
Houston-based Alimak Hek offers access to its products, after-sales services and customer support through a comprehensive network of wholly owned sales, rental and service companies around the world. The company’s product brands, Alimak, Champion and Hek, have become leading names in construction hoists, industrial lifts, mast-climbing work platforms, transport platforms and material hoists, in addition to underground equipment for both temporary and permanent installations.
