Leading materials vacuum lifter manufacturer Kappel has appointed Hird Group to be an approved repairer in the UK.
Hird is one of the country’s leader suppliers of Kappel vacuum lifters for hire, with a wide range of the industry-leading machines in its fleet.
Now, as an approved repairer, it can also maintain and repair Kappel vacuum lifters operated by other companies.
Hird Director John Wilding said: “We have built up a significant amount of experience and expertise in using Kappel vacuum lifters.
“This has also involved working with Kappel to develop new types of vacuum lifters, including the fin lifter.
“We are very pleased that the trust Kappel has in us has resulted in Hird becoming an approved vacuum lifting equipment repair centre.
“This means we will be able to support the growing number of companies using Kappel vacuum lifters across the UK, with a fast, and reliable repair service.”
Vacuum lifter repairs can be carried out at client premises or at a work site, if necessary, by one of our mobile service engineers.
If we need to take a vacuum lifter into one of our workshops, we can supply a replacement machine to minimise operational downtime.
