ALE, formerly Abnormal Load Engineering, includes special transport capabilities as well as strand jacking solutions acquired from Brambles in 2002. Ainscough has the UK’s biggest fleet of telescopic boom mobile cranes.
The alliance brings together the capabilities of one of the largest fleets of heavy transportation and lifting equipment in the world with the UK's largest crane hire company and gives us the ability to lift and transport any piece, of any size, in the UK.
Ainscough managing director Neil Partridge said: "Ainscough and ALE have worked together in the UK for many years, so making the partnership official seemed like the next logical step. By collaborating and combining our expertise, we'll be able to offer clients a seamless, full-service solution. We're excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring."
ALE executive director Mark Harries added: "This partnership combines the strengths of two market leaders. We're delighted to be amalgamating our plant, expertise and industry knowledge to offer a complete solution to clients. The quality of service we offer is paramount and this working relationship will provide the best available, without a doubt."
