Lifting & Load Testing
Our lifting division has grown significantly over the years to become a leading provider in the supply, inspection, repairs and recertification of a range of lifting equipment across Western Australia. Our range of lifting asset services supports the mining, earthmoving, forestry, engineering and many other industries.
Prime also holds the highly respected NATA accreditation to ISO17025 for mechanical testing and ISO17020 for inspection services. This means that Prime is officially recognized by NATA as being fully compliant with the standards for proof load testing and inspections of lifting equipment and the inspection of personal fall arrest equipment.
What this means for our customers:
- A commitment to quality: NATA accreditation demonstrates our ongoing commitment to you, our customers, in ensuring our engineered solutions, manufacturing processes and proof loading facilities comply with global and Australian standards.
- An assurance of performance: Confidence that we will adhere to national and international guidelines to ensure our products perform at the highest level.
- Complete solutions: Our mechanical testing facility provides us with the capability to manage the entire product development process, from design and engineering, through to manufacturing, testing certification, dispatch and commissioning.
- Speed to market: In a competitive business environment where speed of supply is crucial, we can help by providing lifting equipment that is ready for use without the need for you to conduct further testing. This means you can be more responsive to your customers, knowing that testing has been conducted and the products are ready for use.
