New acquisition gives Hewden a massive lift


HEWDEN has snapped up Interlift as part of the firm’s ambitions to expand its rental offering.

The lifting and materials handling company employs 34 staff and has depots in Glasgow, Middlesbrough and Hull. Hewden confirmed Interlift will continue to operate independently, though the firm will be able to utilise Hewden’s nationwide depot network.

Interlift provides a range of lifting products and accessories including hoists, lifting straps, shackles, beam and plate clamps, height safety and man riding equipment.  

Hewden CEO, Adrian Murphy said, “Like any successful business we are continuously evolving. Our goal has always been to develop and acquire complimentary businesses that have the best people and the best products to support our customers in the markets they operate. 

“This acquisition acts as a testament to that and increases our capacity to offer industry leading specialist lifting products and services within our business.”
