Aberdeenshire based Red Rooster Lifting are celebrating a 16% increase in the number of rentals for 2018/19 compared to 2017/18, resulting in a 14% increase in rental value reaching almost £200k.
The company has also bolstered their team as a direct result, adding a further five members of staff, bringing the total number of employees to 50.
Earlier this year the North-east lifting company marked their 30-year anniversary of delivering powered lifting and load measuring solutions to projects as diverse as St Paul’s Cathedral and the new Queensferry Crossing across the Forth. They design, supply, inspect, service and repair lifting equipment for industry, specialising in the oil and gas and construction sectors and operate with a £4.72 million turnover.
Bill Aitken, Managing Director said: Our 30th year in business has been an exciting one for us. Red Rooster’s commitment to delivering bespoke lifting and load measuring solutions whilst practicing consistently high levels of service is paying off with us seeing a significant increase in rentals this year. We pride ourselves on being agile which is a major advantage to our customers that we can deliver being an independent company. It’s not uncommon for us to receive an enquiry, raise the job and send it out the same day.
As a direct result of this increase in sales, this year has also seen us expand our dedicated team of experts. Its fantastic to see our business growing and moving in a very positive direction, with many exciting projects on the horizon.”
Red Rooster Lifting stock hundreds of hoists, load cells, and other lifting solutions, with a large range of the hoists and trolleys available between 10 to 50 tonne capacities.
