Travelling Boat Hoists Enable Better Boat Yard Management
Sigma Design was approached by Acme Hoist to help them extend their product line of large boat hoists. Acme Hoist is a family run business and had been manufacturing boat hoists on Long Island for over 50 years. Improving the steering profiles to allow tight radius cornering and other operator/user features provided better handling in the tight space of a busy boat yard. Creating a new 50 Ton and 75 Ton hoist enabled Acme to better compete with the larger global competitors.
