The Great Lakes Towing Company hosted a WIRE-Net networking event at Great Lakes Shipyard in order to celebrate manufacturing and innovation in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.

More than 100 attendees gathered on the banks of the Cuyahoga River to connect with other manufacturing professionals, forge new relationships and continue to grow and strengthen the local manufacturing community.

In addition to a cocktail reception, attendees received tours of the shipyard and detailed explanations of some of the new services/tools that Great Lakes Shipyard has added to their business offering. This included an overview of new equipment such as:

  • Koike Aronson Plate Pro Extreme Plasma Burning Table.
  • Kalmar DCE 150-12 33,000 lbs. Forklift
  • Boom Truck, Manitex 35100C Crane mounted on a new 2013 Freightliner SD-108 Chassis
  • Telescopic Material Handler 8,000 lbs. SkyTrac 8042
  • Scissorlift 27 ft. SkyJack SJ7127 with Diesel Engine (2)
  • Telescopic Boom, 66 ft. Jib, 4wd, SkyJack SJ66T
  • Telescopic Boom, 45 ft. Jib, 4wd, SkyJack SJ45T
  • Portable Light Plant
  • 20KW 60HZ Generator Terex

At 6:30 p.m., Tug Illinois assisted the M/V American Courage alongside the shipyard dock for all attendees to witness.

When asked why events such as these are important, president of the Towing Company, Joe Starck stated, “It’s a great opportunity to meet our local friends and neighbors, showcase our facilities and equipment, and talk about our mutual skills and capabilities within the Cleveland manufacturing community. This is a city that is thriving in so many ways – the business environment has become so favorable for companies like ours to continue to succeed and grow. And the people and businesses right here in Northeast Ohio inspire us to generate new inventive solutions that we can use in the maritime industry. It was a very nice evening, and a pleasure to get better acquainted with the members of WIRE-Net.”
