A team with pride, skill and dedication
Since 1993 Lowe has been a preferred supplier of high quality stillages, trolleys and material handling equipment to companies such as JCB, DHL, FedEx and IAE. We have become industry leaders in providing bespoke solutions and pride ourselves on the competitive edge our designs provide to our customers.

We operate in our own custom built production unit covering 1.09 Acres in the heart of the Staffordshire Countryside, allowing us easy access to all UK motorways.
We manufacture from three factory units; two are for production and one is a dedicated painting facility. Our design office operates using the Solid Works 3D 2008 and offers a design service incorporating:
- Cad drawing
- Design and 3D modelling
- Prototype Service to develop design through to manufacture.
- Customer provision of part/or item to be transported, and we will design and manufacture the stillage for its use
We have Pressbrake, Guillotine and Fabrication Facilities, complemented by our skilled Fabrication Engineers, all of whom hold welding qualifications certified to ISO 9606/1:2013 and also hold Welding Inspectors qualifications BSEN ISO 5817/2007 Quality level C.
The fabrications that are manufactured at our production facility are designed and built by Engineers and made to last. Unlike the more ‘off the shelf’ material handling equipment, our fabrications are well built to stand robust use. Any fabrication can be load tested to the customers specific requirements and will carry CE accreditation if required.
We pride ourselves in the ability to work quickly and efficiently to interpret your requirements from initial design through to fabrication. From the very small piece part items through to 5 tonne fabrications in one piece.
Our skilled time served Engineers have a wealth of experience in a wide variety of industries including, vehicle manufacturing, material handling, construction, and aircraft manufacturing.
All our equipment is manufactured to BS EN ISO 8611-3:2012 and BS EN ISO 445:2013.MIG/TIG welding can be accommodated.
We manufacture standard cage/containers Stillages/pallets as well as bespoke items. We also can design the dunnage system to support any product storage requirements offering ideal nesting, handling and surface treatment protection, as well as maximising your transport volumes.
What sets us apart from our competitors?
Firstly, over many years we have worked closely with our clients in providing solutions to their complex material handling storage/trolley etc. requirements. Problem solving is our strength, whatever the issue we can provide a solution.
Lowe deliver a complete solution to your material handling requirements. From your initial concept, we produce a detailed 3D design, working with you all the way through the design process, until reaching an agreed drawing.
Our purpose-built production facility is based in the heart of Staffordshire. We custom build every fabrication, taking the steel from its rawest state straight through to a high-quality product. Our fabrications are built by skilled engineers to last. During every stage of the production process our products are inspected to ensure the highest standards.
Long Term Relationships
We pride ourselves not only on just providing the perfect product/ solution, but the relationship that we have with our customers for the foreseeable future. If you have any issues or problems that need solving further down the line, we will always be here to assist.
The Dynamo eyebolt is commonly used in maintenance applications i.e. for lifting a motor
They are only designed for axial loading due to the small collar and ring cross section
The collard eye bolt is the general-purpose eyebolt used in a wide variety of applications
The large collar and ring cross section means this eyebolt is suited to both axial and angular loading, providing the eye is aligned to the direction of pull
The size of the eye is often a restriction and commonly required a shackle to aid lifting
Eyebolt with link
The Eyebolt with link is used where the eye of the collard eye bolt is to small to get a hook through
The compact eye and the link allow the eyebolt with link to be loaded in any direction providing more versatility
Collar eyebolt with Welded Link
Collar eyebolt with welded link serves the same purpose as the eyebolt with link allowing for loading in any direction
However, it only has the same lift capacity ratings as the standard collard eyebolt
DIN 580 Eye Bolt
The DIN 580 eye bolt are primarily intended as permanent attachments on equipment such as motors, control cabinets, gear boxes, etc. for their transport
If used as temporary attachments the next largest size should be selected from that specified.
Side pull or Shear Loading must be avoided, and load bearing capacity is only good to pull angled ≤45°
