RGM Cranes extends footprint into Western Cape

AS Africa’s premier overhead crane service provider and the continent’s largest manufacturer, RGM Cranes is advancing its commitment to excellence by expanding its operations into Cape Town. 

“Our move to open a branch in Cape Town comes from a customer-centric perspective, serving our clients where they operate,” says Alex Dowling, MD at RGM Cranes.

“Our new branch marks an exciting chapter for RGM Cranes in the Western Cape,” shares branch manager Colin Crawford. “This venture not only expands our reach but also reinforces our dedication to providing the complete range of our superior products and services to the region’s diverse industries.”

As the official distributor of Surelift, Guralp, Planeta, and ARC, RGM Cranes brings an unparalleled range of high-quality lifting solutions to the Western Cape’s dynamic industrial sectors.

Boasting a skilled team of Lifting Machinery Inspector (LMI) certified technicians and access to various calibrated load weights, the Cape Town branch is fully equipped to offer the indispensable services and legally required load testing, ensuring that local industries’ equipment remains compliant and safe.

“With the aim of widening our market share, we are keen on delving into sectors that are flourishing in the Cape Town region, including the renewable energy, construction, oil and gas, as well as the maritime sector. Our in-depth knowledge in catering to the materials handling demands plays a pivotal role in the region’s vibrant economy,” Dowling asserts.

The Cape Town branch is poised to enhance operational capabilities with service inspections that ensure crane performance, comprehensive load testing and certifications for safety and compliance, and cost-effective crane upgrades.
