Dewsbury & Proud was established in 1977 by Jerry Dewsbury and Tony Proud with a 6 Ton Mobile Crane. One year later and the purchase of the Company’s first new truck mounted telescopic crane, a 15 ton Hydrocon, laid the seeds of the strong foundations that the Company is built on today.
Since those early days Dewsbury & Proud has expanded and in-bedded itself as the largest independent crane hire company in the Midlands, with over 40 cranes based at our four strategic depot’s, Wolverhampton, Stoke-On-Trent, Coventry and Leicester securing our customers a reliable service network throughout the midlands.
Since 1977 we have developed a first class reputation with the emphasis on quality of service, safety and reliability, traits which have followed us through in to the 21st Century. With the introduction of contract lifts Dewsbury & Proud have used our experience and knowledge of cranes and lifting solutions to supply highly skilled lifting teams and technical staff. Providing our customers with the ability to undertake more complex lifts with planning and execution being fully controlled and completed by Dewsbury & Proud.
Our continuing investment in new equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers ensures that Dewsbury & Proud has a fleet which is modern and of the highest standard. The up to date features offer improved accessibility, increased lifting duties, longer jib lengths and computerised safety devices, which were not previously available. Combine this with our fully experienced and trained operators and you have one of the most knowledgeable and health & safety conscious companies within the crane industry today.
New technology, more training, new products – whatever it is – we promise to give you the best equipment and service available.
