Checkmate is fast becoming one of the most admired designers and manufacturers of height safety equipment in the World. Now into its fourth decade, Checkmate is still very much a family business with four key trading areas: Safety, Lifting, Flexible Engineering and Energy.

Our entrepreneurial style of management allows each business to run as a standalone entity but it has the support, security and depth of the entire Checkmate Group. This culture inspires smart thinking, pride and value within our team.
