Checkmate Lifting

Checkmate is the UK’s leading innovator, designer, manufacturer and trainer of lifting and height safety equipment.

Founded by Paul Auston in 1979 and owned by Paul and his son Oliver, who has been CEO of Checkmate since 2006, the business was acquired in June 2018 by the Pure Safety Group [link to website], the world’s largest independent provider of height safety equipment, training and resources. Our UK based facility is now home to the our Innovation and Engineer Development Centre for the global business of Pure Safety Group.

We continue to lead where others follow and this has been recognised with the honour of being granted the Queen’s Award for innovation along with many other prestigious industry accolades.

Whether you are reading this and discovering us for the first time, or are one of our long-standing partners, we welcome you to the next Checkmate generation as part of the Pure Safety Group.
