Alimak rebrands product and service offerings

Following the merger of Alimak and Hek in 2001, the Swedish global market leader and pioneer in designing, developing, manufacturing and servicing vertical access solutions for the industrial and construction sectors has operated under the brand Alimak Hek.

To streamline the communication towards our customers, all the product lines within Construction, General Industry and Oil & Gas will be named and labelled “Alimak”. Consequently, the Hek products, representing transport platforms and mast climbing work platforms, and the Heis-Tek products, including traction elevators for offshore operations, will all simply be rebranded to “Alimak”. The ambition is to continue building a strong Alimak brand, with its inherent DNA, and include the core values and DNA of the Hek and Heis-Tek Products.
