About Us

Mechan’s ground-breaking heavy lifting products help rail maintenance providers improve servicing times and reach new levels of depot safety and efficiency.

Our manufacturing facility in Sheffield, England has been at the heart of Mechan’s operations since 1969, but in March 2017, we began a new chapter in our history, joining French group, CIM – one of the rail industry’s most ambitious full service suppliers.

We are also the sole UK and Irish supplier for various complementary European innovations, all of which are produced by companies with a commitment to quality and reliability that reflects the high standards we achieve in house.

With the help of approved distributors across the globe, we have established an international reputation for excellence and thanks to our expert engineers and designers, Mechan handling systems are specified in some of the most sophisticated rail and tram depots in the world.
