Plant and machinery

One of our specialities is moving both precision and heavy machinery and industrial equipment. Relocating, removing or reconfiguring any commercial equipment often requires specialist plant or lifting gear. Johnsons have a variety of specialist lifting and moving equipment in-house, as well as access to a number of trusted suppliers of plant and cranes, which are available on a daily or weekly hire basis.

Our teams of both in-house and specialist subcontractors have the skills and expertise to make the relocation process as efficient as possible. Once the equipment has been moved, it may need calibrating, and we can also provide lift and load calculations along with sign-off certification for all work undertaken. Our project managers can prepare detailed plans and handle all of the logistics including special transport or haulage requirements.

From single items to complete production lines

Our teams of qualified and experienced staff can manage a whole range of relocation projects, from on-site moves to full de-commissioning, relocation and re-installation of machinery and factory equipment. We offer the complete turnkey solution, including the use of a wide range of specialist and custom equipment so that your move is completed as efficiently as possible.

We can move and relocate complete factory lines quickly, working to complex schedules, so that you can get set up and operating again as soon as possible. In fact, we can develop lifting plans to fit around your time requirements, managing the whole heavy machinery moving process.

As part of our total service, we can also advise you on connecting to all of the appropriate services too including pipeworks, ducting, electrical, mechanical and civil requirements.

Johnsons moved Seaford and Newhaven Libraries for us over 2014-15. Both jobs went successfully due to the hard work and efficiency of the very friendly and helpful Johnsons Staff.
