CERTEX Lifting is one of Australia’s leading lifting equipment and service companies following Axel Johnson’s acquisition of The Rigging Shed, Lifting Victoria, On Call Lifting, Schillings and Elevate in 2022. Van Beest had an established and trusted relationship with The Rigging Shed, and the subsequent formation of CERTEX Lifting cemented their confidence in the Australian market. CERTEX Lifting is confident that this partnership with Van Beest will further enhance the comprehensive lifting and rigging solutions they currently provide to their Australian clients.
