Gunnebo Johnson Receives “Hercules” Order

Gunnebo Johnson Corporation, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has been awarded as of September a significant order with Franklin Offshore in Singapore to manufacture Lifting Tackle, Blocks, Equalizer Beams, and Sheaves for the 5000 Metric Ton Asian Hercules III Project.  Asian Lift Pte. of Singapore is the owner.  It will be designed, tested, manufactured and delivered over the next twenty months.
