The Rose Corp was proud to take part in the construction of the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site. We fabricated crane rails that were part of the crane to transport concrete to each floor of the building. This is an excellent example of our industrial fabrication and contract manufacturing expertise.

The holes in the side of the crane rails are at precise locations to allow indexed movement of the crane up the building.

The crane was used to pump concrete up to each of the floors

A total of 960 linear feet of rails were machined for this project.
