Dunlop, Howick & Benoni


REMA Tip-Top rubber facility in Howick needed to move the factory around to cater for future manufacturing plans and building redevelopment.

How Reef Rigging helped

We used a 220-ton mobile crane with 80-ton rated lifting capacity to lift, slew and reposition a 65-ton China press 20 metres to a new lay-down area.

Our experienced team of riggers and fitters also conducted a mechanical dismantlement of a 173-ton press. They dismantled it into six manageable 25-ton cylinder ram sections for removal, loading, transportation to the Benoni plant.

We used a crane to reassemble the press into a live factory production environment. Our end-to-end alignment, re-assembly and re-commission were carried out with minimal downtime.
