Crane hire specialists’ expansion plans get a lift

As a business that is used to ‘going up’ in the world, Synergy Lifting Solution’s growth has led to an expansion that has seen it doubling its footprint at Hillington Park, on Watt Road to 10,000 sq ft.

The crane hire and contract lifting company, which was formed in 2014, works in the construction services, industrial, defence, marine, aviation, and retail sectors in the UK and across Europe.

As well as providing crane hire and contract lifting Synergy’s 32 specialist staff also deliver construction health & safety training and bespoke services to construction projects.

Daniel Sheppard, Head of Commercial and Business Support at Synergy Lifting Solutions said: “Since we started the business eight years ago we have had consistent growth each year and are now at such a size that we require twice as much space to operate as well as continue to expand further.  

“Our training division is an accredited Pearson VUE Authorised Touch Screen Test Centre meaning that, as well as being central to our staff and close to the major arterial transport routes, Hillington Park’s central location, and many public transport links, offers easy access for anyone looking to sit their Health, Safety & Environmental Touch Screen Tests. The additional space will help to support our various business activities, as well as being a modern and convenient Touch Screen Test Centre.”

Derek Aitken, senior asset manager at Hillington Park said: “It has been tremendous watching the steady growth of Synergy and we’ve been pleased to support them in the next stage of their expansion.  Prior to Synergy moving in, Frasers Property invested £250,000 in completely overhauling this unit since it was in an unlettable condition. By improving the building envelope, removing gas services and installing sustainable lighting and heating, the Energy Performance Certificate improved from F to C and Synergy will benefit from lower energy costs as a result.  

“The construction services sector at Hillington Park is particularly vibrant with many businesses choosing to locate here because of the wide range of properties available, fast access to customers and construction sites across central Scotland as well as great transport options and on-site amenities for their people.  Synergy is a strong example of the many successful companies based here and we wish them continued success.”
