LIMPET TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS WITH LIFTEK TO TAKE HEIGHT SAFETY SYSTEM INTO MIDDLE EAST
13 June 2014
Height safety pioneer, Limpet Technology has announced a partnership with Liftek FZC to distribute Limpet safety systems to customers in the Middle East. Commenting on the deal, Limpet Technology Marketing Director, Philip Taylor said, “Given the enormous scale of the local oil and gas sector and the huge construction projects being undertaken across the region, we have been looking for a partner in UAE for some time. With Liftek, we think we’ve found a really good match-up; a company with strong technical and manufacturing credentials in the lifting space and a team that is hard working and well respected”. He went on “Limpet® is opening up the wind energy sector in Europe and the US with a system that can support a diverse range of maintenance-at-height activities; from climb assist and fall prevention to man-riding and rescue. We think that Liftek can take these applications and successfully apply them into the on and offshore markets in the Middle East.”
Liftek, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, is a leading supplier of lifting and height safety equipment in the UAE and exports products to more than 20 markets. John Alexander, Liftek’s Managing Director, commented “We first read about Limpet having won an innovation award in 2012 and so we are delighted to now be able to offer it exclusively in the UAE. The system solves a lot of the height safety problems facing our customers and we are looking forward to demonstrating the Limpet L5 to them and showing them first hand, how it can deliver value.”
