Wind Energy Manufacturers Need the Best Material Handling Products

To succeed in the tough market ahead, manufacturers of wind turbines, components, towers and blades have to adopt the most efficient manufacturing processes.

They must meet unique material handling challenges. Turbines are often big enough to hold a small bus and can weigh over 40 tons. Some rotor blades are almost two hundred feet long. Expensive and fragile, these products need to be handled carefully with equipment specifically designed for lifting them safely.

Bushman AvonTec has designed and built custom material handling equipment for over 60 years. Our innovative thinking and value engineering have created products that have long, safe, productive lives. We can minimize costly product damage with equipment that is designed for the rugged needs and demanding operating environments of wind energy manufacturers.
