Crane Spotting...Plant Engineering 2011 Top Plant
Congratulations to Nacco Material Handling Group for being chosen as Plant Engineering's Top Plant 2011! The plant, located in Kentucky, designs, engineers, manufactures, sells, and services a comprehensive line of lift trucks and aftermarket parts under the Yale and Hyster brands.
How did they continue to endure after the past few years of a down economy? They positioned themselves to respond to economic rebound by launching eight new product lines. Pretty impressive!
The other thing that I was impressed by while reading the article in the December issue of Plant Engineering was the amount of overhead crane systems and floor mounted systems that they have throughout the facility. Lots of Gorbel spotted on the front cover and the article photos. Thank you Nacco for your business, for providing us with a great article and photos to use for crane spotting. Here's to your continued success!!
