Why ALE?

Organisations worldwide choose ALE because we’re one of the biggest international heavy transportation and lifting contractors, with a global network of operating centres and a large fleet of heavy cranes, specialist transport and installation equipment.

By investing as much in our people as we do in equipment, we have a world-class management structure to support our technical potential. So as well as having the best project managers and engineers available today, we’ll have the best tomorrow, too.

At the heart of ALE’s business are our people: dedicated professionals who work with our clients to achieve the very best results. We employ imaginative people at all levels within the company, who focus on developing innovative solutions for the most complex projects. We challenge conventional thinking, aspire beyond accepted limitations, and don’t stop until we have the smartest, most effective solution to each and every challenge. Our Innovation Series is just one example of our insistence on pushing the boundaries to create solutions that work best for our clients.


ALE is a responsible business with a strong moral core, so the safety and well-being of the individuals we work with and the clients we work for is our single most important consideration. Minimising risk to our staff, our clients and members of the local community is a priority at the highest level of the company, and an ethos that permeates every aspect of our business.


We haven’t become one of the world’s foremost experts in heavy transportation and lifting by thinking small. By investing in the latest technologies and employing the best people in the business, we’ve grown over more than 30 years into a global leader with a presence across a breadth of sectors and markets. Our flexible approach suits any project, whatever its size or scale, and our clients know they can rely on us for commitment, innovation, delivery, service and an agile, proactive approach that gets results.
