2016 – A Busy Year for G&W

G&W saw alot of change and growth in 2016. We opened a new branch in Florence, SC and Greenville, NC. We are set up well to service the Eastern part of the states.

We renovated both our Charlotte and Raleigh branches. With adding more employees we were in need of more space and some modernizing. Come check us out! We outgrew our Columbia branch and now are in our new location. It’s great, if you are traveling on I-20 you can’t miss us!

We picked up some new product lines, Hoist Liftruck is now part of the G&W line-up. They have quite a selection of large capacity trucks, both cushion and pneumatic, electric and internal combustion.

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2017!

Solar Panels in Charlotte, Raleigh & Greenville, SC

G&W not only promotes zero emission electric powered GREEN forklifts, we are now producing our own electricity to charge those lifts and run our facilities.  In 2014, G&W began a campaign of installing solar panel systems at our facilities.  Over the past 3 years, we have been producing 100’s of 1000’s of kilowatt hours in Charlotte, Raleigh and Greenville.  These solar electric systems are a sustainable source that produce no emissions and reduce our local communities carbon footprint.

Our commitment remains to our customers and employees. We look forward to helping you reduce your material handling costs while increasing your productivity. At G&W you will get the expertise of a large corporation with the personal touch of a small business.
