STOP! Collaborate and Lifting: MGF team up with supplier

Our Lifting & Safety team have been working closely with Reid Lifting, ahead of the launch of the NEW PortX Davit

A strong working relationship with suppliers is key for any business and we pride ourselves on building strong bonds with customers and suppliers alike. Reid Lifting have been supplying high quality lifting equipment to MGF for a number of years, leading to our collaboration on bringing the PortX Davit to the market.
