Global Lift Group opens Northern Europe's first training center with lifting and mounting equipment for plaster boards and windows.
"It could be great fun if glaziers and anyone else using glass lifts took their favourite machine and tested it against our new gear," Sales Director Kurt Nielsen of Global Lift Group (GLG) says with a big smile on his lips.
The test could suitably take place in the Global Lift Group's new training center in Denmark. Here, the Global Lift Group has built Northern Europe's first center for glaziers, apprentices and anyone else who wants to learn how to mount windows and plaster boards without heavy lifting for the crew.
"We have gathered all the knowledge we have about mounting and designed a new range of glass lifts from scratch. At our factory in Denmark simply the best lifts we've been able to imagine are now rolling out of production. And the more who wants to try, the happier we will be, “ says Kurt Nielsen.
The training center is equipped with Global Lift Group's Danish-produced glass lifts and Mountit gypsum handling system, which GLG has taken over as well as the glass lift producer HH Intellitech.
When a class of carpenters at the end of January, as the very first, received training at the new training center, their teacher Ole Bruun from the SDE vocational school in Odense was pleased with the possibilities.
"If the retirement age keeps raising, we wont be able to work that long because of the physical strain our work leaves on our bodies. Today you should be able to work until retirement, but that means that we need to use the new machines and technology” he says.
Ole Bruun thinks its very important for the students to be confident in using the new technology even if it might be a bit tricky to get the hang of in the beginning.
“Using the new technology might take longer the first couple times you use it, but in the long run it will not only save us time, but when we put the last window or gypsum plate into place Friday afternoon we wont feel completely used and tired.” says the working environment teacher for the carpenters at SDE in Odense, Ole Bruun.
