LEEA Full Member status for Foxdrill!

A while ago, Wagenborg Foxdrill achieved the Full Member status of LEEA, the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association. Recently, a surveillance audit round took place at Foxdrill’s offices in Oldenzaal, The Netherlands. An audit round which revealed that Wagenborg Foxdrill even exceeds the requirements for this LEEA Full Membership. Time for a short talk with Bart Oude Ophuis, Operations Manager at Wagenborg Foxdrill and responsible for the LEEA membership.

Safe lifting gear

‘Keeping lifting gear in a safe condition and certified is a basic but essential process in our industry’, says Bart. ‘As an expert in working at height, we can reach even the most difficult areas where lifting gear is installed. So no matter where your lifting gear and appliances are located: our rope access specialists can reach and inspect it.


They can also combine these lifting gear inspections easily with other services, such as NDT inspection, structural inspections or a derrick inspection. This way, efficiency can be increased significantly’, he points out.


‘The LEEA membership is a confirmation of our operational professionalism and the high safety standards we apply. We are therefore very proud of this recognition and our Full Membership of LEEA!’
