How we did it


On this international factory relocation project, Synergy Lifting planned and executed all heavy lifting and shifting operations to perform egress and load all machines onto transport for it to then be relocated to Mexico, Italy, and the USA.

The work was coordinated to ensure that it was done in a timely fashion and to suit the client’s required programme of works. The machines and equipment being relocated included: CNC machines (makes included Takisawa and Sinico), grinding and finishing machines (makes included Loeser, Supfina) and presses (including a 40te horizontal press).

Plant and Equipment

To carry out this work, we mobilised on site with a range of suitable equipment which included: 64te skates, toe jacks, pad jacks, slings, chains, shackles, and much more.
