Martin Halford has joined the Board of The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), the leading trade organisation for the global lifting sector. Martin is Managing Director and owner of Dynamic Load Monitoring (UK) Ltd, which specialises in the Design and Manufacture of Load Cells and Load Monitoring Equipment. He is also Director at Vulcan Offshore Ltd, an Engineering services specialist for the Offshore Industry.
Commenting on joining the board, Martin said: “LEEA is a great forward thinking international association for the Lifting Industry, providing training and other vital resources. I was first encouraged to put myself forward for board membership at LiftEx 2019 while speaking to some industry peers, and it is something I have considered for a while now. With a background in Electronic Engineering, owning DLM and the evolution of technology within the lifting industry, I thought that some of my skills could be utilised within LEEA and help represent some of the more electronic based lifting products on the market including Load Cells. I would like to be able help drive the Association forward and assist in developing LEEA’s offerings to the global market, while continuing to promote best practice.”
He added: “I am encouraged to see LEEA engaging with other industries using lifting practices and offering support for non-traditional products for the Lifting Industry, which I believe will stand it in good stead for future development.”
Ross Moloney, CEO at LEEA said: “Martin is a tremendous addition to the Association’s Board, which makes a vital contribution in helping to drive LEEA forward as we continue to support our members and create the conditions for sustainable, safe, innovative and advanced industry.”
