Tim’s knowledge and experience will drive the Company’s growth and international expansion strategies. Verton’s unique and innovative load orientation products present many lifting industry opportunities. The Company has positioned itself firmly to deliver lifting solutions for clients and stakeholders worldwide. 

Verton is an innovative technology firm and inventor of the world’s first remote-controlled load orientation system. This revolutionary system makes taglines obsolete, removing the need for workers to be near moving or suspended loads, keeping them out of harm’s way. Verton’s range of lifting products also integrate smart technology to facilitate more precise load placement, faster task turnover, and superior analysis and oversight of operations. The technology will greatly benefit lifting operations by moving towards `hands free` lifting and keep workers clear of potentially high-risk zones.
