We’re excited to announce the addition of three excellent products to our confined space rescue range:
These new, carefully-selected products are manufactured in Italy by KONG, which means outstanding quality and reliability.
KONG has a rich and long heritage as a company. Their attention to detail and commitment to safety complements our own ethos, which is why we’re delighted to announce that we’re launching these products to the UK market.
Take a closer look to find out what makes the KONG equipment stand out.
As of 14/04/20 Globestock reopened for business, albeit on a limited basis.
Although we took necessary steps to safeguard our staff and customers by temporarily closing at the end of March, we recognised that many of our valued distributors and their clients working in key industries are still operating and have demand for our equipment and servicing.
Therefore, despite these unusual times, we have returned with a skeleton crew of remote working admin staff and on-premise production operatives, with the latter working in accordance with Government guidelines in respect of social distancing and appropriate use of PPE in the workplace. Additionally, these staff have been issued with anti-viral cleaning supplies to keep them, their production environment and the products being dispatched, as safe as possible.
Whilst we are pleased to announce the resumption of servicing and the processing of orders, which will enable customers to access essential Globestock safety equipment, it’s worth noting that our response times may not be as quick as usual and the prompt lead times on goods, that our customers are familiar with, may need to be extended in some cases, so we kindly request your patience should this is occur.
Our premises are open, but only for essential staff and couriers to collect items being dispatched. Customers may arrange to collect urgent orders, but this must be done strictly with prior appointment.
We will continue to monitor the wider situation and, as circumstances permit, will look to ramp-up back to full capacity as soon as possible.
We wish all our customers the very best in these unusual times and look forward to supporting you through this by reopening now.

Globestock Business Continuity Plan in respect of COVID-19 Virus Outbreak
Purpose and Scope of this Plan
Unplanned events can have a devastating effect on any business. It is essential for the purposes of continuity, and to uphold our ability to deliver our goods, services and meet our customers’ expectations, that we plan and make allowances for events which may be out of our direct control.
This abridged version of the Globestock Business Continuity plan has been developed in response to the ongoing COVID-19, or Corona Virus outbreak.
Authority of this Plan
Director and Senior Management Team (SMT) take full authority of this plan in the event of an emergency. The plan covers all employees and will be followed comprehensively.
Plan and Actions
The principles of this plan are already being put into practice in accordance with wider recommendations in respect of the COVID-19 outbreak. Official NHS information can be found here:
In line with this, the following actions are, and will be, adhered to in the workplace:
• Symptoms of COVID-19 are communicated to staff via e-mail, toolbox talks and memos in order to raise awareness.
• Good hygiene is paramount, with staff, customers, suppliers and visitors reminded by notices and encouraged verbally, to wash hands and maintain limited levels of personal contact.
• Employees who feel ill and are concerned should call 111. If they are told to self-isolate then they should stay at home/away from work and public places.
• Members of the SMT will request that an employee calls 111 and/or leaves the workplace if obvious signs of COVID-19 symptoms are displayed. This is for the overall benefit of all staff and to stop the virus spreading in the workplace.
In the event that staffing levels are affected to the extent that delivery of goods or services may start to be impacted, then:
• Businesses may recruit agency staff (DBS checked where applicable) as a short-term measure in order to ensure that contractual obligations could be fulfilled.
• Any members of staff may be redeployed to production/service delivery/administration roles, in order to ensure continuity of key tasks.
• Businesses will communicate with customers and suppliers immediately, should delays or interruptions become likely.
Join us at the Executive Hire Show 2020 for the prototype unveiling of the G.Tripod 230!
The G.Tripod 230 is a confined space tripod that has been designed specifically for the hire industry; a two-person, three-pulley tripod system that is certified for lifting both personnel (200kg MWL) and loads (400kg MWL).
Stuart Raby, Globestock’s Business Development Manager, had this to say:
“We’re really excited to be taking part in the Executive Hire Show in Coventry. Globestock have not exhibited at the show before, so we’re especially looking forward to it. This is a great opportunity for hire companies to get to know us a little better and have a closer look at our products, from bestsellers to exciting new prototypes”.
The show coincides with the development of new products for Globestock. Stuart elaborates:
“As well as bringing along the range of trusted, dependable products that we’re recognised for, we’re going to be showcasing our smart new, British-manufactured, G.Tripod 230.
It’s great to be able to finally share Globestock’s new tripod with the industry, which will be deployed on hire fleets later this year. We’re very proud of our British-made equipment, so we’re inviting everybody at the show to swing by the stand to find out more.”
In addition to the G.Tripod 230 prototype, Globestock will be exhibiting their davit, winch and fall arrester products.
Globestock will be welcoming visitors on stand K8 throughout the course of the event.
