Saltec-Torgar won the gold (first prize) innovation award in the category of New Developments in Machinery for its high-rise, building materials transport system.

The machine comprises a specially-designed platform that moves shuttering systems between floors, minimising the use of the tower crane on site. A benefit of the new product is that it mounts either on the ground or can be fixed to the building structure.
