Merseyside-based John Sutch Cranes is to invest £3.7m into new fleet and machinery.

The long established, market-leading firm continues to consolidate its presence across all sectors including the construction, civil engineering and oil and gas industries, purchasing nine new machines.

Its cranes are a familiar sight and are often used on high profile projects. They were centre stage when the ‘Giants’ twice came to Liverpool, helping to move the giant figures around the city’s streets.

The latest acquisition includes six Axle Spierings, a mobile tower crane that is extremely flexible and can be used in a range of lifting jobs.

Hayley Sutch, managing director of Bootle-based John Sutch, explained: “These cranes are consistently in high demand and is probably the most popular choice due to their flexible and versatile nature lifting up to three tonnes and with a maximum radius of 60 metres.

“Adding these to our fleet ties in with our wider growth strategy across all sectors.

“We are committed to operating a fleet where no one machine is older than five years. This is incredibly important to us, ensuring we are consistently up to date with the latest technological advances affecting key areas such as health and safety.

“While we invest in our fleet we continue to offload older models to sustain this approach.”

A new 250t Terex crane and 300t Liebherr crane supports the firm growth in the heavy cranes sector. Ms Sutch added: “We are driving forward our presence in the heavy crane sector and following our purchase last yeast of a 350tonne machine, are keen to add further weight to our fleet. 

“These two additions will undoubtedly help consolidate our position in this sector and allow us to continue to penetrate this market.”
