Ace opens in Clinton, Closes in Knoxville, Tennessee

in Business

Electric overhead traveling (EOT) crane and wire rope hoist manufacturer Ace World Companies has opened its third facility—in Clinton, Tennessee.

The company, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, is a specialist in the design and manufacturing of lifting solutions for some of North America’s most demanding applications. Its equipment is widely installed in steel mills, power plants, ship-building and aerospace facilities, to name just a few.

In 2010 it opened a second facility in Knoxville, Tennessee, to increase crane building capacity. Two years ago, a dedicated panel shop was also opened in Pewaukee, in Waukesha County, Wisconsin.

The Fort Worth site, which opened two years after the formation of the company (1987), is approx. 80,000 sq. ft. and serves as a manufacturing facility for its engineered wire rope hoists, trolleys, bridge cranes and end trucks. Ace opened the slightly smaller, 49,000 sq. ft. location in Knoxville to expand overhead crane manufacturing capacity. However, this operation will move 30 minutes up the road to the sprawling 180,000 sq. ft. Clinton factory this month (March), to facilitate manufacturing of larger cranes and increase annual production. Ace is currently building cranes at both locations but will cease all activity in Knoxville.
