Handling specialty currently operates out of two facilities. The first is our head office and manufacturing facility (Plant 1), with 40,000 sq. feet at 219 South Service Road in Grimsby, Ontario, and 100,000 sq. ft at Plant 2, at 1632 Burlington Street in Hamilton, Ontario. The Grimsby facility, known as Plant 1, also houses the head office. The Hamilton facility (Plant 2) manages large-scale projects and those requiring large open test areas. In contrast, the Grimsby facility handles smaller-scale projects, pre-assemblies and R & D. With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and highly-trained personnel, Handling Specialty will assess, design, manufacture, and install custom material handling equipment specific to your applications.
The physical assets of our plant 2 in Hamilton offer 105′ ceilings, spans between columns for large horizontal builds and test track layouts, drive-in trucking for safe, efficient load-in/out and tarping or overseas container prep. Plant 2 also includes our large-scale Paint booth and new Blast booth operations, where all our equipment is given professional, industrial-strength coats of high-quality paint before shipping to the customer. We also offer blast & paint services to other clients in greater Hamilton.
Plant 1 houses our sales, engineering, quality control, parts and service, project managers, marketing, manufacturing, and a smaller-scale paint shop.
With less than 20 kilometres separating the two facilities, Handling’s personnel have easy access to both, allowing for transfers and visits from the production, engineering and management staff when necessary.
Handling Specialty sells equipment all over the world, and so are proficient in the preparation of overseas shipping procedures. We ship from both Plant 1 and Plant 2.
