By adding chain hoists to their offering, Gorbel now offers the most convenient delivery and installation in the industry. When customers order their Gorbel GS Series Hoist with one of Gorbel’s 5-Day Quick Ship Cranes, everything arrives on-site at the same time to reduce installation delays and downtimes.

“The addition of the GS Series hoist is a natural extension to Gorbel’s family of crane and lifting technologies. We believe that a high quality hoist wrapped with extraordinary customer support is consistent with our drive to be ‘A Class Above’ and aligned with our mission of improving people’s lives,” said Brian Reh, Gorbel president.

“We aim for speed, responsiveness, and reliability in all we do. And we’re excited to bring these performance traits to our new GS hoist.”

The GS Series Hoists are single and dual speed hoists available with single or double fall, in any lift, with capacities from 1/8 ton to 5 ton.
