ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems Looks to NAI for New Overhead Crane System
Customer returns to NAI for a second crane system order in support of its growth plans
(I-Newswire) April 21, 2010 - Woburn, Massachusetts,– North American Industries (NAI) announces that it has replaced an existing overhead crane for ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems Inc. (ThyssenKrupp) in its Fort Worth, TX manufacturing facility. ThyssenKrupp, part of ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG, designs, manufactures installs and services passenger boarding bridges for airports. Its product line includes glass-sided crystal bridges and smooth painted steel sides.
In 2001, ThyssenKrupp purchased two cranes from NAI for the Fort Worth facility. NAI has continued to provide service and parts to ThyssenKrupp since that time and was pleased to provide this new crane system in support of ThyssenKrupp’s continued growth.
NAI designed and installed a 20-ton top running double-girder bridge crane with an 87-foot span running the entire length of the building. The crane will be used to transport ThyssenKrupp’s boarding bridges through its manufacturing process.
Mike Wiens, Plant Manager at ThyssenKrupp states, “The overall thoroughness of North American Industries was impressive. NAI provided prints, initiated regular planning communications and provided timely updates. We were most pleased with the project manager that facilitated the installation. He was very knowledgeable and focused, possessing a genuine concern for limiting any possible downtime we may have due to this process. In addition, the crane was adequately and safely tested upon completion.”
“We are focused on providing highly-engineered overhead lifting systems designed to meet specific operational objectives, and we take pride in providing a seamless experience for our customers. Any time we receive a repeat order, it validates the good work we do in support of our customers,” commented George Wheelwright, NAI Sales Manager. Over half of NAI’s business comes from repeat customers.
