Lifting is a potentially dangerous business. The safety of lives and loads are dependent on a number of factors – the skill of the riggers, suitability and condition of the lifting materials, operating conditions, care and consideration of all involved in lifting work.
At Big Red Rigging, safety assumes top priority and comes first. We strive daily for a step change in HSE performance and vigorously apply the principle of intolerance to any "unsafe act and/or condition". Our HSE Rules are strictly enforced to ensure the Safety and Health of all employees, or any other person, as well as safeguarding of the Environment.
Alongside safety, all at Big Red Rigging are passionate about delivering service excellence as the next top priority, exceeding customer expectations and ensuring a good customer experience at every defining moment in the value chain. What sets Big Red Rigging apart is that the team are professionals with relevant qualifications, as opposed to operators on commission, and assist the customer with rigging tasks long past the point where the relationship stops making money for the business.
Negotiations are currently in progress with black-owned and managed investment holdings companies in our quest to become a rated and respected BBBEE rigging institution. Genuine black ownership and management with a 25.1% member’s interest would give Big Red Rigging a BEE verification rating of Level 3 Contributor. This empowerment status affords our clients a BEE procurement recognition level of 120%.
Big Red Rigging has systematically built a range of lifting capacities offering multiple lifting and carrying configurations customized for client moving needs, haulage distances and cost competencies into the business model – all in pursuit of national Southern Africa and trans-border coverage - from a single point of 24/7 contact - anywhere, anytime, any load.
Today, Big Red Rigging is one of the regional industry leaders in the field of rigging, transportation, heavy lifting and positioning of large or heavy capital equipment, with its primary rigging business proposition supplemented by a range of supporting engineering and project management services.
Active in the rigging field for over 15 years, Big Red Rigging provides unparalleled, personalised service to a broad industry clientele. Service satisfaction ratings are monitored daily via evaluation surveys completed by clients.
Big Red Rigging is funded entirely from own resources and operates independently from other rigging companies. This owner-directed work ethic is aimed at making sure that customers benefit from safe, high quality, first class rigging services and pricing leadership that truly contribute to customer cost-effectiveness.
Major blue chip companies are counted among our most valuable clients. Recent projects include plant upgrades, dismantling, uplift, relocation, installation, levelling, anchoring and commissioning of various manufacturing lines in capital intensive industries.
As the use of projects and sub-projects becomes more pervasive, Big Red Rigging has adopted a rigorous project management approach to plan and control the scope work to ever tighter budgets and defined outcomes on behalf of the client. Given our client listing, Big Red Rigging has worked for listed and multinational companies on numerous projects in co-operation with overseas-based technicians and engineers who have expressed complete satisfaction with our standards and equipment.
