Company Profile

Penny Hydraulics is a multi-award-winning lifting equipment manufacturer based in Derbyshire. Proudly manufacturing in the UK, we carry out all the functions of a fully integrated company with design, manufacturing, quality control, aftersales support and nationwide service operation.

We’ve grown to become the UK’s leading lorry-loader crane manufacturer, goods lift manufacturer and lighting winch manufacturer and our equipment can be found at prestigious sites across the globe from Buckingham Palace all the way to the Guinness factory in Nigeria! Last year, we operated in 22 countries worldwide, also providing specialist design and manufacturing services to the nuclear decommissioning, mining and tyre handling industries. Typically, a customer will be a large “blue chip” organisation such as BT, Royal Mail, JD Wetherspoon or a Sellafield Nuclear Reprocessing Plant with a specific load handling problem. We’re partnered with industry’s leading professional and trade organisations and are approved commercial vehicle converters for vehicle-mounted lifting equipment for major vehicle manufacturers including Ford, Renault, Nissan and Volkswagen.

Following an exciting journey of diversification, product development, investment, acquisitions and expansion, we celebrated our 43rd anniversary this year and recently opened a new £2M manufacturing facility. But we’re not just committed to investing in our site; investment in the right people is a priority for us too. We know that our ongoing success is a combined effort and we therefore strive to provide opportunities for our employees to learn, grow and thrive. Our work environment is friendly, inviting, and inspiring. If you’re looking for an opportunity to express and explore a career in marketing within the manufacturing industry, read on!
