UBS History

21 Fenchurch St London Under Construction Showing UBSL Hoist & Common Tower

One of UBSL’s Iconic Construction Hoist Projects in London

UBS has been operating in the UK for more than 30 years and has been involved in some of the most prestigious high rise projects in that time, providing both hoisting and our common tower access system.

These projects include supplying over 60 hoists to the athletes village for the London 2012 Olympic games, Canary Wharf, Heron Tower, Swiss Re Tower, (Gherkin), New Providence Wharf, Great Ormond Street, St. Bartholomew’s and Royal London hospitals plus many other projects.

The UK arm of UBS was purchased in 2006 and has continued to grow and currently involved in many of the present high rise projects being constructed in and around London.

We currently operate from our two depots, one in Hertfordshire, the other being in Essex with an experienced team of estimators, design engineers, operations and commercial management.

We are continually adding to our hoist fleet and are able to offer a varied selection of hoists along with our common tower system.
