Brief History of Gorbel
Headquartered in Fishers, NY, and founded over 40 years ago, their first manufactured products were manually rotated jib cranes. Quickly they then developed enclosed track, aluminum products, and more. Over the years they have continued to be an innovation leader with their intelligent lift devices, fall arrest systems, and ongoing development of lifting equipment. In 2006, they were named International Business of the Year, and expanded to Beijing, China. Recently, their product lines have extended into medical lift technologies and mobile fall arrest vehicles.
