REID Lifting & THERN Inc showcasing portable cranes at WEFTEC 2014

REID Lifting & Thern Inc., our USA partner, showcased lightweight and portable lifting cranes at WEFTEC 2014 in New Orleans, USA.

WEFTEC—the Water Environment Federation’s annual technical exhibition & conference—is recognized as the world’s largest annual water quality event and provides the latest technologies and services for water environment preservation, restoration, and sustainability. A total of 20,385 registrants and 1,027 companies from nearly 100 countries using 303,075 net square feet of exhibition space, participated in the largest WEFTEC show to date at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.

REID Lifting & Thern Inc showcased the award winning PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDEQueen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation and International Trade 2013 Winner. The portable gantry is a unique single piece, rapid deployment, ultra-lightweight, fold away gantry lifting system with WLL up to 500kg Goods and Fall Protection/Personnel Lifting (Man-ride) capability with EN795-Class B certification, suitable for up to 3 people and ATEX certified. The standard unit, 33kg in weight, has recently been extended with the new Medium and Tall versions being added along with the STOW n GO shipping and storage container which has been specifically developed for the standard unit.

The PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE aluminium crane hoist was chosen for the 3rd consecutive year to feature in the confined space entry & rescue operation stage of the Operations Challenge Competition.

Continuing the two-city rotation between Chicago and New Orleans, WEFTEC 2015 is scheduled for September 26-30, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
