Liftsure Equipment CC in Jet Park, Gauteng, has been a major supplier of parts for South Africa’s industrial truck industry since 1999. The company is the local agent for Curtis instruments, PGDT controls, and Mastermover pedestrian‐operated tugs, and is also a primary distributor for Albright contactors. “The name Blue Giant still echoes throughout the South African market,” explains Director Donald Pharoah. “We are proud to be partners with a globally recognized company and expect great things to happen.”

“Global demand for Blue Giant dock equipment continues to accelerate, which necessitates our expansion,” says Steve Greco, Blue Giant’s Director of International Sales. “South Africa is a growth market with lots of opportunity, and through our partnerships with SA Vertical and Liftsure, we can ensure that Blue Giant’s premium dock solutions make warehouse operations there safer and more efficient than ever before.”

Blue Giant is the premier solutions provider of safe, effective, and technologically innovative loading dock and material handling equipment.
