Another membership milestone for LEEA

The Indonesian branch of All-Rig Lifting and Engineering Supplies Pty Ltd has become the 500th member of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).

Originally formed in 1944, the LEEA has expanded rapidly in recent years, with membership more than trebling since 2003.

Welcoming its latest member, Geoff Holden, chief executive of the LEEA, said: “The growing interest in LEEA membership reflects the quality and integrity of the training, accreditation and support services we provide for the overhead lifting industry.”

“Our members and staff have worked incredibly hard to develop the association, with notable achievements including the creation of a purpose-designed training centre, new membership committees in the Middle East, Singapore and Australia, and the introduction of the ‘TEAM card’ identity scheme for engineers that pass our Diploma examination.”

All-Rig Indonesia joins its Australian-based operation as a full member of the LEEA. Outlining some of the key benefits they enjoy, Mark Heath, general manager of All-Rig, said: “Being a member of the LEEA has enhanced our position as a creditable organisation by ensuring that our employees are trained to the highest level within the lifting equipment industry. It has also enabled the company to provide a range of services – such as on-site inspections, testing and supply of lifting equipment – where clients will only specify LEEA-accredited suppliers.

“In the area of Indonesia where All-Rig is based there is a significant offshore oil industry, and LEEA qualifications are mandatory in providing services to a large number of companies in this sector.”

Established as the Chain Testers Association in London in 1944, the LEEA is now a truly global organisation, with over half of its members based outside the UK.

The LEEA provides them with access to industry-recognised, CPD-certified training, qualifications and accreditation for lifting equipment engineers.

Each year, hundreds of people participate in the LEEA’s distance learning courses and Diploma examination program.
