MGF Launch New Lifting Equipment Division

MGF are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Lifting range!

Mark Smith, MGF National Lifting Manager

Complementing our existing range of safety and handling equipment, our expansion into the Lifting industry brings new products and services to our offering, allowing us to further benefit our existing customers as well as reaching new businesses and industries.

“In line with our core values of commitment, innovation and sustainability, we are diversifying our product range to supply our customers with a full product solution. Enabling a one stop-shop for all your lifting, safety, shoring and structural support needs on site – ultimately reducing time and suppliers to make the job as easy as possible.” – Chris Whitworth, Operations Manager.

Starting with an initial phase of products featuring slings, loose lifting equipment, hoisting, blocks, winches and crane site equipment; the division will continue to expand to suit the demand of the industry, regularly releasing new products and increasing our coverage to service the nation through our regional teams.

Alongside the new lifting products, we have also introduced our new testing and inspection service to fulfil the legal requirement that all lifting, safety and other work equipment can be inspected on a periodic basis by a qualified person. To facilitate our testing and inspection service, our team of fully qualified technicians are available to visit customers sites or depots.

To facilitate this offering, MGF are full members of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) – providing our customers with the comfort and knowledge that our products and services conform to the industry standards. With LEEA qualified engineers currently located at our Astley, Rugeley and Durham Depots, we are working to have all regions supported to offer our customers on-site inspections nationwide.

Supported by our existing Technical Sales, Hire Desk and Operational teams, the Lifting department will be headed up by Mark Smith and is the latest development of the MGF Group.

Mark has worked within the lifting industry for 20 years and has a further 10 years’ experience with plant hire. Mark has joined MGF as National Lifting Manager and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to enable the business’ success.

Mark is supported by a team of specialist technicians, qualified with LEEA, at our Astley, Rugeley and Durham depots as well as a dedicated engineer and sales team.
Following 6 months of behind-the-scenes preparation, Mark and the team are ready to start servicing the UK with MGF’s lifting equipment and accessories. For more information on the lifting division and to download a copy of the new brochure please visit
