Brantford, Ont., – PowerMate,® / L P International Inc., is not just a major industry leader in North America when it comes to manufacturing and distributing Safety Moving Systems.
The company also has a large international presence that continues to expand. PowerMate ®/L P International Inc. has been growing into markets in Northern and Central Europe, along with Scandinavian countries for the past 35 years, with new markets opening up each year.

PowerMate ®/L P International Inc. has a network of distributors in the United Kingdom, Germany France, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands, and what sets the company apart is that it manufactures every product it ships overseas to CE specifications.
“Our products move 300-650 kilos regularly,” said Lee Jeavons, general manager for PowerMate ®/L P International Inc. “That’s where our products really work well for our customers overseas.”
Another way that the company is helping out its global customers is by now translating some of its user manuals found on its website into other languages.
