Street Crane equips new £6 million factoryPP Group — a provider of materials profiling, processing, fabrication and welding services to a range of industry sectors — has opened a 110,000ft manufacturing facility in Oldham; this has 10 single-girder overhead cranes supplied and installed by Street Crane (

They are used 24/7 for loading and unloading vehicles and machines, as well as for the metal fabrication process.

PP Group operations director Ian McAllister said: “In addition to our ‘state of the art’ profiling machinery, the Street cranes are a vital component of our new factory, enabling us to significantly boost our profiling and processing capabilities.

“All the metals we handle are lifted with overhead cranes rather than fork-lifts to avoid any damage to materials and ensure that our operation is as productive and safe as possible.

“Having used Street’s cranes before, we knew we could rely on the company to provide highly efficient products that would meet our demands.”

Chris Lindley-Smith, Street Crane’s sales director, said: “This is an impressive facility with an intensive production schedule.

Overhead cranes are integral to its success, so we’re proud to have been able to provide our latest pre-engineered cranes to ensure that PP’s lifting requirements are carried out as effectively and safely as possible.

“All the cranes are fitted with Street’s ZX wire rope hoists, which are well proven in all types of lifting operations to provide high performance and the best levels of availability with minimal maintenance requirements.”
