Alimak Hek Ltd Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Alimak Hek Ltd are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2018. It was on 5th April 1968, that they were first registered as a subsidiary of the Swedish Alimak Group.Alimak Hek was founded in Sweden, in 1948 by engineer and technical inventor Mr. Alvar Lindmark (1917-1975). It was soon after this, in 1962, that the development of the very first rack and pinion driven construction hoist would undoubtedly change the construction industry forever. Alvar Lindmark was fascinated by the biblical story of Jacob`s ladder, which stretched right up to the kingdom of heaven. With this idea in mind, he sought the technical solution for building lifts closest to this vision. By letting the basket climb a towered mast, he created a simple, flexible and cost-effective lift.
