“On behalf of Gorbel, I’d like to express our appreciation for being recognized as a top manufacturer and company by the Rochester Business Journal,” said Tyler Brown, VP, Operations. “Gorbel is proud to have increased production, added hundreds of new employees, and successfully expanded the portfolio of products over the past year. Our hardworking, dedicated, and talented employees have made Gorbel’s continued growth possible in 2022.”

Gorbel has built upon the core vision of its founder, Dave Reh, to build a company with a specialty product valued by customers, enabling employees to function in a respected, low stress business environment.

With a portfolio of overhead solutions and warehouse solutions, Gorbel creates products to enhance productivity, profitability and safety throughout plants, warehouses, and distribution centers. Founded in 1977, Gorbel started as a small company in Western NY and has now expanded to over 800 employees, with manufacturing locations in NY, AL, AZ, and Canada.

In the last few years, the company has explored new ways to improve material handling and purchased Engineered Lifting Systems out of Canada, adding its Destuff-it and Restuff-it products to its portfolio as well as the addition of a second manufacturing location in Western NY.
