With over 30 years’ experience in engineering lifting equipment fixtures and tooling EDS develop and supply fit for purpose engineering solutions for industrial environments such as tooling, jigs, assembly fixtures, moving and lifting gear. A large proportion of our work is within manufacturing industries

We manage and deliver projects from inception and concept to procurement and installation and where required we provide site work and prototype trials. We take pride in working closely with your engineers, technicians and experts to ensure objectives, timescales and budgets constraints are met.

Our areas of expertise include the design and manufacture of:

  • Bespoke lifting assemblies
  • Production line tooling
  • Assembly jigs and fixtures
  • Hooks
  • Slings
  • Hydraulics

EDS specialise in engineering and developing solutions form single components to complete systems and where required offer consultancy and advice.

Our case studies provide an insight into a range of projects and industries we work with.

It is a small sample of the jobs we help with and so if you are unsure whether we can meet your needs, please contact us either via email or phone call and we would be happy advice without any obligations.


BS EN ISO 9001:2015 approved

We are BS EN ISO 9001:2015 approved specialists in the design and supply of lifting equipment and tooling.

Structural design is carried out using tried and tested theoretical methods, with reference to British and European Standards as appropriate.

Our specialism is mechanical design. We design bespoke parts and assemblies for lifting, moving, fixtures and tooling projects. 3D models and 2D drawings are created using the latest SolidWorks design package allowing for robust development and easy modification to suit customer specifications. Using up to date Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software in conjunction with our solid works design package, we are able to optimise our designs to your needs.

This combination of software also allows EDS to conduct structural analysis with the additional benefit of being able to carry out any re-design work required to ensure your products are suitable for their intended loading and safety factors.

We can provide quotations for the design and manufacture of solutions, and deliver completed projects that are fit for purpose and meet the requirements and timescales of our customers.


All lifting equipment tested and certified

As well as bespoke products tailored to your requirements, EDS also supply loose lifting equipment, such as shackles and eyebolts, up to the design, supply and installation of overhead lifting facilities with cranes and runways for whole factories. We also provide sub-assembly fixtures, build fixtures, and special tooling to enable our customers to improve their production output.

All lifting equipment is tested, certified and CE marked before we sell it. We ensure that all of our equipment is practical and reliable.

We offer a wide range of engineering essentials and lifting equipment. Our ‘off the shelf’ products are available through our online shop but can also be purchased direct.

We can help you identify the most appropriate solution for you so if you can’t see what you’re looking for or your not quite certain of what you need we encourage you to get in touch. We have a wide variety available that isn’t in our online shop and can offer bespoke products.

We are careful to choose respected and high quality suppliers including:

  • Yale
  • Rud
  • Gunnebo
  • Straightpoint

Our products range includes:

  • Hoists
  • Chain component
  • Slings
  • Clamps
  • Pallet trucks
  • Hydraulic jacks and cylinders
  • Winches
