The family owned business secured funding from Allied Irish Bank to buy the new 200 tonne crane and state of the art 50 tonne City crane.

Managing Director John Sutch said: “During the past two or three years, we’ve seen a steady increase in enquiries from a more diverse client base.

“We now form part of almost all the major contractor supply chains but are also working for end users direct including Peel.

“This level of demand is excellent and we realise if we are to take the business to this next level we must invest in our fleet, our people and our wider operation to ensure we can meet demand and sustain our excellent service and delivery levels.

“It’s fantastic to take delivery of our latest two cranes and rewarding to see the confidence that our bank Allied Irish has in us. We’re looking forward to the year ahead and expect to be making some more fantastic announcements in the coming months.”

Peter McGurk Senior Business Manager at Allied Irish added: “”John Sutch Crane Hire is a real Liverpool success story which continues to go from strength to strength.

“They would be regarded as the leading privately owned crane operator in the region and we have enjoyed a long standing , mutually beneficial working relationship for many years.”
“Allied Irish Bank (GB) has supported this valued local company by providing significant funding for the acquisition of 2 new cranes to further expand their fleet. We look forward to continuing to support John Sutch Crane Hire in realising their future growth aspirations.”
