We are pleased to announce that AG CRANES Limited based in Redditch Worcestershire have been unveiled as the latest distributor for BCP Cranes. The distribution agreement covers the sole rights to BALKANCARPODEM AD CRANE (BCP) products in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

BCP are based in Bulgaria and have been established for over 50 years. They currently deal in 70 different countries, and can rightly claim to be the world’s largest hoist producer. To date BCP have manufactured a record 1.92 million wire rope hoist units distributing them worldwide. As well as manufacturing electric wire rope hoists BCP also build overhead travelling gantry cranes up to 50 tonnes safe working load, crane end carriages, and electric chain hoists.

The crane end carriages and wire rope hoists suit both single and double girder cranes. The end carriages are inverter driven as standard, and can be supplied side or top mounted.

BCP’s wire rope hoists are manufactured in various applications including; stationary, standard headroom, low headroom and double girder crab units. All motors for the UK market are 415 volts 3 phase, with low voltage controls to the pendant. Hoists include control gear, and a transformer.

The rope hoist range offers a total of 15 different SWL’s starting at 2 tonne, with lifting heights of up 56 meters. 2 speed lifting motions are available in all directions as is medium and high duty hoisting. 2 fall and 4 fall hooks blocks are standard across the range.

AG Cranes can now offer a large amount of standard hoist options to UK gantry crane builders. For example the 5 tonne safe working load hoist alone has 84 different options of speed, heights of lift, duty rating and suspension types.

Tristan Preece from AG Cranes said. We are now stocking and distributing BCP products throughout the UK. With the new MX rope hoist out during 2015 offering better headroom and pricing structures we are very excited about the new partnership. Our turnover has already increased and we have taken on more staff as a result.
