About Us

About the company

Based in the North West of England Dale Lifting and Handling Specialists are providers of lifting and handling solutions to all industrial sectors. Established in Manchester in 1830 as chain makers to the Admiralty and as a founding member of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association of Great Britain, we have a long tradition of quality craftsmanship and customer service. Our products and services are continually updated to meet the needs of industry with a strong emphasis on quality and safety. In 1987 we were the first company in the North West to achieve BS 5750 part 2 in our field. With further improvements and the installation of CAD for computer accurate drawing, in 1998 we achieved ISO 9001.

In addition to lifting and handling equipment sales and hire, we offer a complete bespoke service for overhead lifting systems - from initial site evaluation, quotation, design and manufacture, through to installation and testing - our services include aftercare and maintenance programmes individually designed to meet customer's specific needs. With in-house and on-site equipment inspection.
