A Scots crane hirer has marked its 50th year in business by adding a 110t capacity Liebherr to the fleet.
Horizon Reinforcing and Crane Hire decided to commemorate the half century with a new LTM 1110-5.1 complete with a special logo highlighting the landmark anniversary.
Based in Falkirk in the central belt, Horizon runs a fleet from 25 to 300 tonnes, made up of all-terrain, city, truck-mounted and self-erecting models. Among them are Liebherr 60t machines and an MK 88 self-erecting tower option.
Director Stewart Dougall commented: ‘Liebherr is recognised as the market leader in the crane industry and the LTM 1110-5.1 has class-leading specifications. It is the perfect five-axle crane to celebrate five decades in business’.
Horizon Reinforcing was established in 1973 by William Dougall, originally as a steel reinforcing company, and added the crane rental service to its portfolio in 1986. William’s son Steven joined the business full time on leaving school and now owns the business, working alongside his sister, Maxine, who has also been with the company since leaving school. A third generation, Steven’s sons Stewart and David, are also involved in managing the business and were on site to receive the new crane.
