FAQs about our impending relocation
We’ve been operating from Market Deeping in Lincolnshire since first opening the doors in 1977, so this is an exciting time!
The new building is fantastic, with more than double the manufacturing floor space and state of the art facilities. We’re looking forward to offering much faster lead times and even more options in terms of bespoke manufacturing capability.
We’ve put together below the answers to frequently asked questions regarding the move but if you’d like any further information, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Why is Advanced Handling moving premises?
Over the past year, we have experienced unprecedented demand for our lifting solutions. Our custom-built units, in particular, have been popular, bringing in many new customers who were unable to get what they needed elsewhere. This recent success has resulted in more manufacturing being brought to the UK from our overseas partners in the Sunnex Lifting Group.
This relocation to much larger, state of the art premises, will enable us to improve lead times and product performance, continuing to supply the range of products that you are familiar with as well as offering a greater range of options in terms of bespoke lifting solutions.
