Gillig LLC Bus Manufacturing

Over 40 cranes and hoists were installed in GILLIG LLC’s new Livermore, California facility as the bus manufacturer recently completed its relocation from Hayward to the Oaks Business Park. The newly constructed, custom-designed, 600,000 sq. ft. site continues the company’s 128-year tradition of manufacturing in the San Francisco Bay area.

The hoists, manufactured by R&M Materials Handling Inc., were supplied by their Master Distributor CraneTech Inc., which worked closely with GILLIG’s design team to provide comprehensive material handling coverage of an approx. 500,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility where completed heavy-duty transit vehicles roll off the production line having started as small parts.

From initial design to final assembly, each GILLIG bus is built to customers’ specifications; models are 29-ft., 35-ft., or 40-ft. long. The vehicles incorporate a broad range of drive systems, including clean diesel, compressed natural gas, diesel-electric hybrid, and zero-emission battery-electric versions. It’s a manufacturing process that relies heavily on crane and material handling systems that range in capacity up to 10 tons.
