Beck & Pollitzer install new 800 tonne press at fellow Sertec

Member News

Nationally-based engineering company Beck & Pollitzer has installed a new 800 tonne Zani press at fellow Made in the Midlands member Sertec Heavy Stamping at their Coleshill facility.

The Zani 800t press has been installed to increase capacity at the facility which is primarily focussed on the automotive sector.

Sertec selected Beck & Pollitzer as their preferred lifting and installation provider due to their previous work they had completed at one of Sertec’s site in Eastern Europe.

The 800t transfer press has a base of 54 tonnes and a crown weight of 80 tonnes. Beck & Pollitzer will be using their specialist expertise and equipment to lift the main item into position. The equipment includes 500 tonne power tower and 40/60 versalift.

Beck & Pollitzer has strong record of installing presses and other machines and equipment into the automotive industry and many other sectors.

Martin Hooper, General Manager Business Development of Beck & Pollitzer said of the project “We are delighted to be provided our skilled services to support a fellow Made in the Midlands member in Sertec for the installation of their new Zani press.

“The company has continued to invest in skilled labour and equipment to complete such projects on a global scale.

“This shows our firm commitment to working with manufacturers in the UK and across the world on capital investment projects across multiple industrial sectors.”

One of the main reason why Beck & Pollitzer were chosen for the installation was due to their ability to offer a full turnkey solution.

Andy Creswell, Group Facilities Manager at Sertec said “We turned to Beck & Pollitzer after they had successfully completed other projects for the group throughout Europe and their ability to project manage the process from start to finish whilst prioritising health and safety.”
