On-site tech support was great. Overall very pleased with this project from start to finish. All requirements achieved - very pleased with quality.

Whenever I contacted anyone from Handling Specialty I was answered within one business day, if nothing else to let me know they were working on it and to give me an estimated deadline. The MGV we purchased runs extremely well and is very appealing which was one of the necessary requirements as it is located in an area with high visibility. The MGV is a very simple application that was intuitively integrated and required no formal installation or training.

Handling Specialty currently operates two manufacturing facilities; 28,000 sq. feet at 219 South Service Road in Grimsby, Ontario and 80,000 sq. ft @ 1632 Burlington Street in Hamilton, Ontario.  The Grimsby facility, known as Plant 1, also houses the head office.  The Hamilton facility (plant 2) manages the large-scale projects and those requiring large open test areas while 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. 

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. 

Plant 1 houses a smaller-scale Paint shop while plant 2 received a new large-scale Paint booth and new Blast booth in November of 2018, where all of our equipment is given professional, industrial-strength coats of high-quality paint before shipping to the customer.

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.
