Gorbel was honored with a Platinum Award in Team Excellence from the Greater Rochester Quality Council (GRQC) at their annual Performance Excellence Awards at the Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford earlier this month (October).

  • The mission of the GRQC and purpose of this event is to celebrate local organizations that have demonstrated outstanding performance and continuous improvement.

    Awards are divided into three categories: gold, silver, and bronze. On rare occasions, a platinum award is granted to organizations that exceed the stringent criteria set forth by the GRQC.

    Gorbel received this award in recognition of the Destuff-it Implementation Project, which involved acquiring the Canadian conveyor system and bringing it to production in the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    This project was completed in just six months and was meant to sustain the company through a period of economic uncertainty.

    “This remarkable achievement is a testament to the dedication, hard work, and exceptional teamwork exhibited by members of our organization,” wrote Franklin Allen, director of quality and continuous improvement at Gorbel.

    “We are committed to delivering the highest quality products and services to our customers and will continue to innovate and excel in the years to come.”

    Gorbel is a provider of cranes and ergonomic lifting solutions in the material handling industry.
