Additional Information


Ainscough Crane Hire, the UK’s leading crane hire company, has opened its 30th depot in the UK, in Exeter. The new one-acre site on Greendale Business Park will be in operation from 1st December 2013.

Mark James, Southern Operational Manager at Ainscough said: “We have been looking to expand in the South West, and are very pleased to have a home in Exeter. The new depot will help our growing customer base and also to take some of the dependency away from Bristol and Plymouth, which have been jointly supporting the area from a distance. Customers in the Exeter area can benefit from a more proactive and localised approach with easier access to our fleet.”

Greendale Business Park hosts a variety of other businesses including FedEx and DHL Express.  The site, which will hold approximately 12 cranes, is Ainscough’s third depot in the South West. The new depot is in addition to its Bristol and Plymouth sites.

Gareth Jones, Commercial Director at Ainscough said: “We are extremely proud to be able to open our 30th depot. This milestone outlines our commitment to customers and our determination to remain the UK’s leading crane hire company.”

Headquartered in Wigan, Ainscough Crane Hire is the largest lifting service company in the UK, now with 30 strategic locations spanning the UK from Aberdeen to Plymouth.

Product and Services

We can:

Help you meet all health and safety requirements, with cranes fitted with spark arrestors, engine shutdown systems and any of your other needs

Case Study

When Chevron turned to Ainscough Crane Hire as part of planning a major shutdown in September 2008, we were ideally placed to meet its lifting needs.

With extensive experience of large-scale refinery projects, we sent in our technical team three months before to spend two days per week on site working with Chevron to ensure that everything would be ready for the shutdown. Our project coordinator organised plant inductions for the site operatives in conjunction with the client. The shutdown went to plan, with our health and safety advisor on site throughout to ensure all personal protective equipment requirements were met and the shutdown was 100% incident free.
