Magnum X Roundslings

SpanSet and Lifting Gear UK working in partnership to offer quality Training and equipment.



The Background

SpanSet train 25,000+ candidates annually both at our Training Centre in Middlewich, Cheshire and at locations throughout the country. We are always looking to improve the range of courses we offer off site as well as expand on the geographical areas we cover.

Lifting Gear UK opened their large Bridgwater depot, which is sited close to Hinkley Point in 2017. It soon became a key site, complimenting the branch network and offering a wide range of stock for both Hinkley and the surrounding South West area. Lifting Gear UK recognised Bridgwater would be an ideal venue to offer both Lifting and Work at Height Training as both classrooms and space for a training structure were on site.

Martin Relton, head of Lifting at SpanSet and Andy Stafford, Group Commercial Director at Lifting Gear UK have worked together since 2012 when SpanSet provided Magnum X round slings to Lifting Gear UK for Gwynt Y Mor Wind Farm, situated off the North Wales coast. Continuing to work together in partnership to offer quality Training and equipment was the next logical step.

SpanSet & Lifting Gear UK are delighted to announce a range of Training courses will be available to book from 1st August 2021.
