Gifford Linder - Weighload Trophy Award Winner 2015
For outstanding service to the Crane Association this year’s winner of the Weighload Trophy was the late Gifford Linder.
Giff is the second individual to have been awarded the trophy twice since its inception in 1985.
The award was introduced to be presented annually by Crane Accessories Limited, to the ‘company or individual who has given outstanding service to the [Power] Crane Association of New Zealand Inc’.
Back in 2004 Giff was presented with the trophy acknowledging his work in completing the Crane Safety Manual alongside industry colleague, Maurice Coffey.
The award was presented at the national Crane Association conference in Tauranga and was accepted by Sam Linder, Giff’s son and Managing Director of DM Standen.
