W. W. Cannon, Inc. is the local distributor for Gorbel®Crane Systems. In a study done by the Rochester Institute of Technology, Gorbel®Work Station Cranes were compared to manually operated, traditional I-Beam cranes in relation to push and pull standards developed by Snook and Cirello for consideration by NIOSH.
