At the Rose Corporation we are always looking for ways to improve production and increase efficiency. Just like with our recent floor project, sometimes this means investing in the company. Two new jib cranes have been added to service our new 30’ x 60’ floor area. Both cranes are 22’ long with a 2 ton capacity. They will have access to 60 % of the total floor area.  Fitters and welders will utilize the new jib cranes to move smaller job components around the floor area and also to hang wire feeders to make welding easier on larger weldments. This will also help to free up the larger shop cranes in that bay to help keep production flowing in other areas. This upgrade will allow the workers to do their jobs much more efficiently which will ultimately increase production levels in the shop.

The Rose Corporation is a Pennsylvania-based, WBENC-certified small business specializing in the manufacture of custom industrial fabrication, large-scale precision weldments, power generation equipment (including repairs), and more. The Rose Corporation’s most unique strength is our experience with delivery of specialized design expertise, along with an ability to help customers optimize manufacturability, reduce costs, and improve overall product quality.
