  • Gorbel Makes Top 100 List of Fastest Growing Private Businesses in Rochester

    by Jennifer D'alessandro | Oct 30, 2018
    Gorbel has some exciting news to share! The Rochester Top 100 list of fastest growing private businesses was released last night and we came in at #90!. 

    This annual list is based on sales percentage growth over the past 3 years. Gorbel is proud to say we are one of the larger companies on the list. So compared to smaller businesses, we have a mightier task to grow our percentage at a pace to even make the list.

    Gorbel® has made the list over 15 times, and this marks our first time back on it since 2013. Kudos and a huge thank you to everyone on the Gorbel® team whose hard work and passion helped us earn this recognition! Not only are we Improving Lives every day, we’re doing it on a bigger stage year after year.

  • SafeGait ACTIVE™ Install at Nazareth College

    by Emma Percy | Oct 08, 2018
    There have been some very exciting things happening in the world of Gorbel Rehabilitation! Betty Dolce announced that we have installed our very first SafeGait ACTIVE™ system. The Gorbel team worked long hours last week to install the system around clinic hours. 

    SafeGait Active

    Nazareth College issued our first order and is now the first on the planet with a newly launched SafeGait® product. 

    ACTIVE is installed at first in the York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute, alongside their SafeGait 360® Balance and Mobility Trainer. When the new Golisano Training Center is completed in 2019 it will be relocated there.

    While it’s great to get this first installation in, the real satisfaction is yet to come when there are patients in the system safely jumping after having their ACL reconstructed, or elderly clients practicing falls prevention techniques. Now that, will be awesome.
  • Victor High School Business Management Class Visit to Gorbel

    by Emma Percy | Oct 02, 2018
    On Tuesday, September 25th, Gorbel® had the privilege of hosting a local group of students from Victor High School along with their Business Teacher, Sue Utz. These students are engaged in classes related to business management and have a rather robust curriculum that they study. Some of the areas of focus in their studies for these students include:

    -  Learning the role of Operations Management (Economic, Environmental, Sustainability)
    -  The impact operations has on all business functions (Marketing, Human Resources, Finance implications)
    -  Different types of production methods (Job, Batch, Mass)
    -  Implementing Lean Production and Quality Management ( JIT, Kaizen, Total Quality Management, Benchmarking, National Quality Awards)
    -  Concepts in business: Change, Culture, Ethics, Globalization, Innovation, Strategies

    It is obvious how easy it was to correlate the actvities within Gorbel® to the topics that the students are learning about. In addition to a presentation about Gorbel®, the students had the opportunity to tour the MAIN factory and the Product Demo area (which they really enjoyed in a “hands on” exercise running hoists and G‐Force®!)

    At Gorbel®, we value the Voice of the Customer, and for this visit our visitors were our customers!
