By Maria Hadlow22 May 2008

Alimak Hek has received an order from D&G Hoist & Crane Hire in Australia for a total of 50 hoists from the Alimak Scando 650 range. The first deliveries start this month (May 2008) and will be complete by December 2009.

The order is comprised of a range of models and capacities including 10 cages of the Alimak Scando 650 FC-S hoist. The Alimak Scando 650 FC-S 31/39 model has a capacity of 3100 kg with cage length up to 4.6 m, it is non-counterweighted and can reach speeds of 100 m/min. It can be erected in a single or twin cage configuration.

Gino DeCesare, managing director of D&G Hoist & Crane Hire said, "We have had a long standing relationship with Alimak Hek and this investment certainly strengthens that relationship.

"The efficiencies gained from standardising the equipment across one supplier: reduction in maintenance costs by reducing breakdowns and improving fleet age, and increasing utilisation by offering our customers the most reliable and technically advanced hoists were important points in our decision to go with Alimak."
