Rushlift GSE

Airport GSE Contract Management with full Maintenance Support Services

Rushlift GSE specialises in short and long term Airport GSE Contract Management. Our “buy back and rehire” scheme allows companies to capitalize their assets returning cash to the balance sheet whilst continuing to enjoy reliable GSE.

Rushlift GSE’s competitive nature gives us a lead in a market where budgets are constrained and enables a replacement program against ageing equipment, ensuring ongoing availability and reliability.

Rushlift has been a provider of hire and maintenance services for industrial equipment for a number of years, growing steadily as a result of its customer focused approach. The wide skill base of its engineer workforce enabled it to expand the range of equipment it was able to service and hire moving outside of its traditional products of forklift trucks.

In 2010 it was approached by customers at London Heathrow airport to consider hiring ground support equipment (GSE), which shared many of the engineering characteristics of other industrial equipment.

When the former American Airlines vehicle maintenance facility became available at Heathrow in early 2013, along with engineering and management staff with long experience in GSE, the move in to the sector was complete.

Rushlift were able to bring IT systems and financial expertise in to the business whilst the former AA staff brought extensive product specific and industry knowledge. In just one year the business signed a number of maintenance and hire contracts at Heathrow, and has already moved in to Gatwick and Manchester airports, providing long term hire of equipment to its growing customer base.
