SCH invest £ 450k in new crane

SCH Site Services , a division of Finley Structures , has invested on a new state-ofthe-art crane . The company , also based on Aycliffe Business Park in Newton Aycliffe , has received delivery of the new Terex Challenger 3160 , manufactured and shipped from Germany , boasting the first of its kind operating in the UK . Terex say the Challenger 3160 is the first 55- tonne crane to boast a 50-metre main boom , giving SCH Site Services a lead in the market . SCH Site Services undertake structural and secondary steelwork packages inclusive of installation . They moved into new £ 500,000 premises in October 2011 , creating 10 new jobs and boosting its workforce to 33 . Construction Manager Andy Braid said : “ The Challenger is a significant investment for SCH Site Services and will enable us to be more versatile on site . “ It allows us to do a lot more in tighter spaces , and it has brilliant lifting capabilities , so we ’ re expecting to go to the higher market of work . “ The investment will pay off by enabling us to be more self-sufficient by increasing our portfolio of plant and equipment . The last purchase was a Tadano Faun ATF 65G-4 early 2011 .” Terex field service engineer Ryan Gibbard familiarised SCH staff with the new challenger 3160 .
He said : “ It ’ s the first 55-tonne crane to have a 50-metre boom operating in the UK , so it should give SCH Site Services an advantage over their competitors .” Foreman and driver of the new challenger Jeff Lawrence added : “ I am excited to have been given the opportunity to be the designated operator of the new crane . “ I have found the new crane steadier and smoother to operate and the increased lifting capabilities far exceed my expectations .”
