Harrington Hoists honored for green manufacturing excellence

Green Global Award presented to company for excellence in environmentally-sound practices.

01/17/2011


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."

 

WVSN Reports is a national industrial news program highlighting the accomplishments of American industry.

Annual Salary Survey

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
