Case:

SeaVee boats manufactures customized, high quality fishing boats for a wide customer base. In order to keep up with demand, they fabricate several boats a time in a customized facility, complete with a buoyancy tank.  To achieve their production goals, SeaVee needed a lifting system throughout their facility that could lift 2,800-5,000 lb boats to the different fabrication stations.

Solution:

We designed a custom system that features several bridge cranes along the length of the facility. By having several cranes with two hoists each, SeaVea is able to lift the boat hulls for painting, wiring and buoyancy testing.
