Fulghum Industries, Inc., a Georgia-based manufacturing company, has just entered into an agreement to manufacture two state-of-the-art 170’ log handling cranes for use in Canada.
Fulghum Industries, Inc., has been active in the forest products industry for over half a decade, engineering and fabricating the equipment needed to handle, debark, chip, and process all types of hard and softwood. These two cranes have been purchased by a pellet manufacturer in Canada (one of Biofuel Digest’s “50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy”), and have been specially engineered to handle the extreme Canadian winters on top of an already demanding workload. Fulghum’s 170’ log crane is the largest of Fulghum’s standard-sized cranes and was selected for its size and resilience. With their combined storage capacity, these two cranes will be able to unload, store, and feed 1,000,000± metric tons of logs per year; meaning that their operators will be able to process timber even when the roads are too icy for trucks. Add that storage capacity to the inherent ruggedness of Fulghum Industries’ equipment, and the mill will have a pair of cranes that will operate constantly and consistently, without the hassle of unscheduled maintenance and unnecessary repairs.
The biofuel and lumber industries are a booming part of the global economy, and Fulghum Industries is available to supply the equipment and expertise needed to excel in such a competitive market.
