Consolidation in the Heavy Lift Industry

The Industry evolves, development continues. 

Momentous changes have occurred since Lowther-Rolton was formed to serve the heavy construction sector in 1987. The continual increase in available crane capacity has been matched by Project Owners who ambitiously seek out cost-effective and expedited Project strategies. In turn, more innovative equipment and techniques have been developed, and the cycle repeats. Faced with this dynamic environment, Lowther-Rolton’s Clients have acknowledged that a key benefit to Lowther-Rolton’s services is our total independence from all Contractors and equipment suppliers.

Consolidation In Contracting Industry 

More recently the upper end of the heavy-lift Contracting industry has undergone significant consolidation. The Mammoet/ALE deal is the most high profile example of this trend which has further restricted the choices available to Clients as they plan and engineer these ever more complex Projects. This is where Lowther-Rolton comes in.
