Eurolift Tower Cranes has today been fined £50,000 over the death of two workers in the 2005 Worthing crane collapse.
Parent company WD Bennett was also due to be sentenced today but its case was adjourned as nobody attended court to represent it.
The companies were convicted of breaching health and safety regulations after two employees fell to their deaths when a 36m crane collapsed.
Gary Miles, 37, and Steven Boatman, 45, were fatally injured when the tower crane they were dismantling at a school site in Durrington toppled. A third man, Dave Smith, who was found to have mistakenly loosened the wrong bolts on the crane, suffered broken bones in the incident.
All three men were employees of Eurolift, which was also ordered to pay £1,000 in costs as well as the £50,000 fine at Chichester Crown Court.
Judge William Wood told the court the breach was serious enough to attract a fine of up to £200,000. He ruled, however, to impose a lesser fine because of the current financial state of the company.
