When the Ford Motor Company's Research and Development Centre in Victoria was seeking a cost-effective, reliable lifting solution, it had no hesitation in choosing Global Track. For the past five years, Global Track, manufacturers of the award winning Global Track overhead bridge crane system, has supplied custom design and built bridge cranes and electrical chain hoists to the Ford R&D Centre."We chose Global Track mainly because of their low friction runways and anti-crabbing design in their bridge cranes," says Ford Facilities Engineer Tony Golabloski. "Also, their close proximity to our plant makes it quick and easy to deal with,"he says.

Mr Golaboski says Global Track's bridge cranes and hoists have greatly assisted in the Centre's daily operations. "The main gain has been no OHS issues regarding push-pull forces required to operate their bridge cranes, he says. "They are light and smooth to operate... more so than the competition. They have certainly reached our expectations." Mr Golaboski was also impressed with Global Track's after sales service. "They provide a good, friendly service," he says. "I would definitely recommend them."
Based in Geelong, Global Track is a lifting company with a proud history. Global Track has the distinction of designing and developing the world's first pivotal crane up to 15m in length - the longest bridge available. Global Track has improved the function of existing overhead manual cranes to a higher standard by developing the revolutionary new system. The system uses straight-forward engineering principles - the ergonomic design features a pivotal bearing and levered swinging U-hanger producing a crane with a fluid motion.

The unique pivotal system has the load applied between the pivot points allowing a lever reaction, which reduces the operator effort. Unlike static track cranes, which require significant operator effort and are prone to jamming, Global Track works with ease. It will not jam, will increase efficiency, improve production and will help to reduce workplace injuries. Because the system requires far less effort, the size of the bridge can be greatly increased. Global Track manufactures manual functional cranes from 150kg up to 2 tonne - with 15m bridges.
