Heavydrive expands its Russian branch


High demand for Heavydrive’s services in Russia has prompted the St. Petersburg branch to move to a larger premises. The new, 270sqm space boasts an office, a well stocked warehouse, storage space and a spacious delivery zone.

The new location has good transport links and is ideally placed for delivering all kinds of devices from assembly cranes to counterweight traverses.

The St. Petersburg warehouse stocks a wide range of Heavydrive glass assembly and transportation devices available to rent, such as various suction systems with a lifting capacity of up to 2,000kg, counterweight traverses with a capacity of up to 3,500kg and 3-axle overhead manipulators that can lift up to 600kg.

For common pane sizes of 3m x 3m, the Heavydrive VSG 450 K and VSG 600 K vacuum suction systems are ideal – they have a capacity of 450kg to 600kg. The slim design of the VSG 1050 KS suction system allows glass panes weighing up to 1,050kg to be installed behind scaffolding. The MRK 86.0 mini crawler crane is a particularly helpful and versatile tool. It can be used both indoors and outdoors and has a lifting capacity of up to 2.8 tonnes. Its heavy load tip enables assembly even under an overhang.

The on-site Heavydrive fleet has been extended to include a 3.5-tonne transporter in order to guarantee delivery times of 12 hours within Russia. The administrative processes have also been updated. At the headquarters in Tapfheim, Heavydrive has introduced a practical Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system so that all processes are transparent and easily documented. All on-site technicians are connected to the system via an App and can easily record every operation. This is a massive advantage in Russia where there are strict documentation requirements.

The new, larger Heavydrive branch in Russia offers customers even faster delivery times and expert, on-site advice. Heavydrive also offers device briefing by an experienced operator as one of its services. Executive manager of the Russian branch Ivan Leonov has years of experience as a civil engineer in the field of glass assembly and is available for all customer enquiries.
