History

Since George Taylor & Company Lifting Gear (Midlands) Limited began in 1974 as a committed supplier of high quality loose lifting equipment to the Offshore Industry and general lifting tackle trade, GT has established itself as the premier UK brand of lifting, hoisting and mechanical handling products.

The George Taylor & Company manufacturing story began way back in the 1800s, with its first small foundry in Hamilton, Scotland. Today George Taylor still manufacture an Internationally recognised and approved product range that is supplied globally and yet endeavours to maintain its traditional family values, that have always ensured customers are treated with the care and respect they deserve.

George Taylor & Company Lifting Gear (Midlands) now has three distrubution centres with its UK Head Office in the West Midlands, England and additional sites in Hamilton (Scotland), that remain very close to its other group Foundry sites.

In 2006, to further expand sales and distribution work around the globe, George Taylor and Company Lifting Gear (Middle East) FZC, based in the United Arab Emirates, opened its doors to act as a vital support link to the growing amount of Middle East and African Stockists that were requiring GT products continually.

With an ever expanding product range and with its focus on premium quality and realistic and competitive prices, George Taylor and Company continue to invest in the research and development of many customers specific lifting needs and aim to maintain the traditional heritage on which it has been built.
