Custom case for a relocation project

22 tons bespoke case for a relocation project

This ThrowbackThursday is from the 1960s and shows a case that was specially designed for a relocation project.

The case itself weighed 22 tons, so it could safely support the table of a large gear hobbing machine. Inside the case, the machine was completely sealed in polythene, with the lifting parts protruding through the seals.

Beck & Pollitzer is used to providing a bespoke service for clients when a project does not fall into usual or standard specifications. Quality service and efficiency—as well as Health & Safety for all involved—is of paramount importance to us, meaning that we are dedicated to delivering precisely what a client needs when they need it.
