She adds that BMG’s team of specialists, with over 30 years’ collective experience, work together to provide solutions for any lifting or rigging challenge.

“An interesting project for BMG recently was assisting a game farmer relocate three young giraffes from a game reserve in Nylstroom, in Limpopo to Kuwait. We constructed a robust sling especially for the project, using high-strength McKinnon chain, to load the crate holding the giraffes safely onto a truck”.
