This Welsh firm’s lightweight portable lifting equipment helps customers safely carry out work such as manoeuvring heavy oil pumps, rope work on high-rise buildings, and repairing museum artefacts. Founded in 1996, the company started exporting in 1999, and its overseas customers include the Vatican and Louvre museums. International sales grew to £3.6m last year, and in March it was bought by investor Pure Lifting. As part of the deal, Simon Luke, 49, replaced Nick Battersby, 59, as managing director.
