Global lifting expert CERTEX enters Australian market

CERTEX Lifting is set to become a major player in Australia’s lifting and rigging market. Axel Johnson International acquired The Rigging Shed, Lifting Victoria, Elevate Lifting & Rigging, Schillings Hoisting Equipment and On Call Lifting last year. The consolidation of these companies under the highly regarded CERTEX brand will make it one of the largest lifting equipment and service companies in Australia.

The launch of CERTEX Lifting will bring together 125 employees, ten sites across Australia, and decades of experience under one united, internationally recognised brand. The national rollout of the CERTEX Lifting brand will commence in November 2022 and will promote their ‘Lifting KnowHow’, expertise and quality services to clients nationwide.

‘We are excited about this opportunity to build and grow as CERTEX Lifting here in Australia,’ says Steven Flint, Managing Director, CERTEX Lifting. ‘Our customers will benefit from our service-orientated philosophy, combined with the strength of a national footprint and international backing.’

CERTEX Lifting is working closely with its new parent company to introduce new product names to the Australian market through supply chain diversification and will continue their collaboration on national operational initiatives and marketing campaigns that will set CERTEX Lifting apart in the Australian market.
