    We are currently adding two more assembly lines and upgrading three other lines. We willinstall Gorbel Hoist Systems from Engineered Systems on all five lines.

  • We have had the pleasure of working with David Yates from Engineered Systems Inc., since the beginning of the construction phase during Caterpillar’s startup here in Athens, GA. The pricing has always been competitive, and the products delivered on time. The ESI staff has been great to work with, and on numerous occasions, even adjusted their work schedule such that the production schedule at the plant is not affected. The Gorbel Hoists and Systems have been very reliable and dependable while withstanding the rigors of everyday production. Engineered Systems is our preferred choice for all current and future installations, due to their knowledgeable staff and great products. Thank you for all your support and service.
