Our Aspire™ range

A more sustainable choice for the lifting industry

Minimizing and eliminating CO2 emissions throughout a product's value chain and keeping products and materials in use are challenges that we and the whole lifting industry are facing. At Powertex and Ropetex, Part of Lifting Solutions Group, we want to lead the transformation and set the standards for a more sustainable future in our industry.

That is why we strongly support Lifting Solutions Group's Aspire™ range. The Aspire™ range has carefully selected products with documented features that are more sustainable than conventional equivalents. They have a reduced negative impact on the climate and/or the environment, but without any sacrifices on either quality or safety. It is our aspiration and dedication to work towards a lifting industry operated in a more sustainable way.
