Some projects require a hoist to remain on-site for several years. For these project we offer the opportunity to buy a semi-permanent industrial elevator. To offer you the best industrial elevator, each machine is designed to a bespoke configuration in collaboration with our chosen manufacturing companies. The bespoke configurations can vary in size, have a payload capacity of over 5,000 kg and are even available for EX/ATEX-proof areas.

The solution to increase transport speed and safety: The RECO Common Tower

The RECO Common Tower offers contractors a vertical highway to high-rise construction projects. The modular tower access system multiplies your hoist capacity and offers barrier free access to any floor while minimizing vertical façade apertures and safety zone areas. It is second to none due to extensive internal development by our inhouse hoist engineers. This allows us to offer bespoke configurations to contractors and even alter and reconfigure elements of the tower safely while it is still in use. It is thanks to our cooperation with RECO Holding that we were able to create this high-end solution for more efficient high-rise construction in such a practical manner.

Part of RECO Holding

RECO entered the UK market in 2015, but the RECO brand goes back a lot further. RECO was originally founded by the Reigwein family in 1953 at The Hague in The Netherlands. Back then the family business was already trading construction materials such as scaffolding and machines between the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. In 2015 RECO acquired the hoist division of HTC Plant, allowing us to kickstart our hoist rental service in the UK. Today RECO is still a family business and manages 5 specialist companies with over 350 employees under one roof, namely RECO Holding. Supported by RECO with over 65 years of experience plus the market specific experience from HTC Plant, we provide you the best possible solutions to vertical transportation.
