Harrington Hoists honored for green manufacturing excellence
Green Global Award presented to company for excellence in environmentally-sound practices.
Green manufacturing accomplishment was never more exciting than a recent press conference held at Harrington Hoists, Inc.'s Manheim, PA plant located 60 miles west of Philadelphia.
The event was attended by management and shop employees alike, who took a brief respite during a busy workday to gather on the plant floor to receive the prestigious Green Global award from Industry Visions, the nation's foremost industrial news program produced on the wire services and carried by media sources around the world.
News cameras rolled as the WVSN Reports team gathered images from the American hoist manufacturing facility whose history dates back to the 1800s. Harrington has recently ascended as an American icon of production process and profit in an otherwise abysmal year for American industrial concerns. Harrington has developed a reputation for their aggressive green manufacturing initiatives and their proprietary process of hoist crafting that removes all compounds that could be environmentally harmful.
Harrington Hoists meets the ROHS compliant requirements, a stringent European standard of green manufacturing. Harrington has become the 'hoist of choice' for evolving clean energy projects that require a wide range of lifting solutions from production to maintenance.
Business Development Sales Manager Bret Lussow introduced Allyn Mark, host of Industry Visions Industrial News, who presented the award to the Harrington management team and said, "Harrington Hoist exemplifies American exceptionalism. Harrington leads by example with the versatility that's required for any industrial trend; it is Harrington's lofty endeavors that keep industry lifting greener with more efficiency and safety from their revolutionary product line."
President and CEO Ned Hunter, and Director of Operations Scott Miller, looked on as Carlo Lonardi, VP of Sales and Marketing, accepted the Green Global Award.
"We at Harrington are honored to receive this Green recognition. Green manufacturing is something we take seriously -- from our ROHS certification to reducing our carbon footprint at the plant. Our ultimate pride is that when our customers join our revolution they too are propagating Green; with every lift they make increasing material movement efficiency using Harrington products."

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
