slabs of marble for the World Trade Center

Copperloy Yard Ramp Getting it Done at World Trade Center

At Copperloy, we always enjoy showcasing some of our recent projects, and the happy customers and clients we work with across the country. Of course, each customer is important to us, and we take great pride in helping all of them to complete their jobs safely, effectively and efficiently.

As an American owned company, proudly producing all American made equipment for more than 50 years, certain projects hold an extra-special place in our hearts and minds though. That includes any time we work with other small businesses looking to get ahead all across the United States.

In this case though, we’re extremely excited to have been involved with the construction project surrounding the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Few symbols are more powerful and patriotic than the new Freedom Tower and the rebuilt WTC site and memorial, and everything that it stands for in the USA.

Here, a World Trade Center contractor utilized one of our mobile yard ramps to help them move and install huge marble slabs in the WTC Transportation Hub. Gem Construction & Restoration Corp. won the interior stone contract, which meant they were handling the stone purchase and installation for the facility, and needed to outfit the upper Transit Hall and lower level Transit Hall.

We provided them with one of our feature-rich and durable 16,000 lb. capacity steel yard ramps. These yard ramps offer an overall width of either 70 or 84 inches, with a height range of 37 to 65 inches, and a length of 36 feet. They offer steel grating, 6 inch steel curbs, an 8 foot level off, 15 inch lip and 30 inch approach ramp, pneumatic tires, an hydraulic pump, positioning sleeve, safety chains, and more.

The list of features go on, but what remains will be all of the essential functionality and capability necessary to complete any tough and important job. Even one as tough and important as being involved with the construction of the World Trade Center.

Copperloy produces a diverse array of material handling and loading dock equipment, and we have the gear you can count on. We also provide our customers with custom design, fabrication and manufacturing services.
