Lifting / Handling / Public Works

What do buildings, freight transport, industrial maintenance, and wind power have in common?

They all use lifting, handling, and public works equipment on a regular, if not daily, basis.

Manufacturers today offer ever more efficient, cutting-edge vehicles to optimise productivity and profitability.

However, despite safety standards becoming more and more strict, incidents still occur regularly when such machines are used.

To minimise detrimental operational interruptions, our loss adjusters respond very quickly to the scene of an incident. Their excellent knowledge of the field, the equipment, and their operating conditions enables them to identify the most suitable solutions for each situation.
