Victor, NY — Gorbel® Inc., a Victor, NY-based manufacturer of material handling and fall protection equipment, is opening a new facility in Goodyear, AZ. Gorbel® currently has manufacturing locations in New York, Alabama, and China, plus a sales office in Michigan. Expanding to Arizona will increase their presence in the western region of the United States and allow them to better serve the customers in those states.
“Our mission is simply to improve people’s lives. And we believe that this customer-focused expansion will do just that by bringing production of our ergonomic lifting and safety solutions closer to current and future end users,” said Brian Reh, President and CEO of Gorbel®.
Gorbel® was founded in 1977 by David Reh, a Clarkson graduate with over a decade of experience selling material handling equipment. In 1990, Gorbel® outgrew their small Fairport location and moved to their current location in Victor, NY, outside Rochester. Brian Reh, David Reh’s son, took over the company as President in 2004, and President and CEO in 2010.
“We are only as good as our incredible people. I want to thank the restless Gorbel® team and our local development partners in Arizona that have worked tirelessly to make this project a reality,” Brian Reh said. “They defied the odds to bring this facility on-line with a positive mindset, world-class quality results and in a record timeframe.”
As an innovator and leader in the enclosed track work station crane industry, Gorbel® has over 40 years of experience providing overhead solutions — from 50lbs to 40 tons — to customers in a wide range of industries. “We Improve People’s Lives” is the cornerstone in Gorbel®’s mission. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality equipment and service available.
