Gorbel, a provider of cranes and ergonomic lifting solutions in the material handling industry, announced that it received a Platinum Award in Team Excellence from the Greater Rochester Quality Council (GRQC) at the annual Performance Excellence Awards at the Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford on October 11.
Awards are divided into three categories: gold, silver and bronze. A platinum award is also granted to organizations that exceed the 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 U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic. This project was completed in 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," Franklin Allen, Director of Quality and Continuous Improvement at Gorbel, stated. "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."
