Who We Were…
In 1982 Ainscough Engineering was formed as part of the Ainscough Crane Hire Group. The company began a national expansion program and in 2001 due to the success and size of the business it became a limited company in its own right.
In March 2005 Ainscough Engineering acquired Pickford’s Vanguard (an amalgamation of Pickford’s Industrial Services and Vanguard Engineering) becoming Ainscough Vanguard becoming one of the largest national industrial moving companies across the UK and Europe well known four our skills and experience in heavy and technically lifting.
