Axel Johnson further expands with Dynamic Rigging Hire

Axel Johnson International continues its expansion into Australia with the acquisition of Melbourne-based Dynamic Rigging Hire; aiming to continue the growth of the company throughout Victoria. 

Axel Johnson International is a global industrial group of more than 170 companies in 30 countries. The company has identified a need for growth in Australia’s rigging sector, recently launching the Certex brand, which includes 125 employees, across ten sites, as reported in Cranes and Lifting last month.

In addition to this, Axel Johnson International completed the acquisition of Dynamic Rigging Hire, effective November 2. The process was finalised by Axel Johnson’s international business group Lifting Solutions.

Lifting Solutions managing director Ralf Wiberg spoke about what the acquisition means for the wider rigging hire community in Melbourne.

“We are very excited to further enhance our footprint in Australia and expand our operations within the rental market through the addition of Dynamic Rigging Hire,” he says. 

“Offering a rental option in the supply of lifting equipment is fundamental to our strategy to achieve a sustainable lifting industry. Dynamic Rigging Hire has a strong market position in Victoria and is a great strategic fit to our group.” 

Axel Johnson International is organised into six business groups: Driveline Solutions, Fluid Handling Solutions, Industrial Solutions, Lifting Solutions, Power Transmission Solutions and Transport Solutions.

Dynamic Rigging Hire maintains a diverse range of rigging gear.

Dynamic Rigging Hire will be able to call upon each of the different sections within Axel Johnson to deliver high quality lifting solutions across Victoria.

Whilst the acquisition marks an important moment for the company, Dynamic Rigging Hire will retain its company brand and its day-to-day operations will continue in a similar capacity as before, under the leadership of managing director Ross Johnson. 

“Becoming part of Axel Johnson International will provide us with an excellent platform for future growth and strengthen our rental service operations. We look forward to growing our business together with the Lifting Solutions group,” Ross Johnson says.

“Our business will remain as it has been, we will continue to service our current clients with no change to what we offer, standing by our hallmarks of high quality service with close attention to detail.

“This was the natural progression for Dynamic Rigging Hire, we have been consistently growing but needed some backing and know-how from a successful international company like Axel Johnson to continue this.

“The team is very excited for what this can provide for us moving forward, we will look for new areas of growth and try to keep pace with a rapidly evolving industry,” Johnson says.

“Lifts continue to grow in their complexities. We have to be able to deliver for clients both a diverse but also a high quality range of products, we can keep pace with this by partnering with Axel Johnson.”

Dynamic Rigging Hire holds a large inventory of rigging gear totalling more than 1,500 pieces that includes more than 60 spreader beams from 1.5t right through to 300t capacities – catering to everything from day to day taxi crane work through to the large scale infrastructure projects.

 “We implement a rigorous inspection process on all equipment once returned from hire along with all the annual certification requirements so we can guarantee any equipment hire from Dynamic shall not only be quality brands but shall also have all the current supporting documentation,” Johnson says.

 Dynamic Rigging Hire has clients across metro Melbourne, regional Victoria and regularly freights rigging gear into other states. Deliveries to locations like Olympic Dam in SA and Tasmania for example is all part of the day-to-day operations at Dynamic Rigging Hire.
