Did you know…???
On this day 18 years ago, David Cooper built from scratch, what is now Cooper Specialised Handling. A former technical engineering apprentice, then a highly successful salesman, David will recall those early days of Cooper’s as a price list, a car and a whole lot of ambition.
Today the company has an impressive line-up of equipment from some of the biggest manufacturers in the world, having started out with just one. The company ethos has always been to serve customers first – by not being targeted or obliged to fill the factories with orders, it ensures that their needs come first.
With this refreshing consultative approach continuing to drive the business forward, we look forward to another prosperous 18 years.
Operating in all sectors of heavy lifting across the UK and Ireland, Cooper Specialised Handling is the exclusive UK distributor for SveTruck , RAM Spreaders and Sany mobile handling equipment, sole UK importer and exclusive distributor for Mantsinen cranes, Movella Translifters, TEC Containers and a long-term specialist in Konecranes lift trucks. The company, which celebrated 20 years in business in 2018, also has a dedicated after-sales division, Cooper Handling Solutions, which specialises in engineering support.
Independently owned, Cooper offers total solutions in both solids and bulk handling. Its customised solutions comprise high quality, high value products and reliable service for businesses operating in the most challenging heavy handling environments, including ports, freight handling, inter-modal terminals, manufacturing and other heavy lifting industries.
