Hiatco specialises in aluminium welding and fabrication. Established in 1993 the early days were focussed on producing caravan accessories, to what was then a booming industry.
Hiatco’s success and high quality reputation quickly moved them into new sectors. Manufacturing, repairing and certifying temporary access equipment for the power transmission line industry soon became a key part of their business.
Hiatco is now a major manufacturer in this sector, with the temporary access equipment range including:
- Aluminium working platforms (from 6m to 21m long)
- Spacer chairs which carry operators
- Replacement parts travelling on the conductor line between pylons
- Aluminium jump chairs
- Armour rod baskets
- Pole platforms
In 1995 Hiatco began manufacturing access equipment such as power cradles for cleaning and maintenance of high rise buildings, atrium travelling gantries and ladders, monorail systems and davit suspension arms.
A further two years, in 1997, saw the beginning of the manufacture of aviation fuel tank floating suction systems varying from 3″ – 30″ diameter units in carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
More recently a battery power operated Spacer Chair has been developed, which has been very well received within the power transmission line industry and is now being exported overseas as far as Australia.
Hiatco has a proven track record of producing only the highest quality aluminium, stainless and carbon steel fabrications, which has resulted in maintaining a long-standing sound customer base.
The company continually strives to improve the service on offer to customers by investing new equipment and technology. They are also passionate about investing in staff training and development; annually investing 5% of gross profit back into staff training.
