GKS Lifting and Moving Solutions Partners with ITI to Support End-Users
Training Content to be added to ITI Learning Hub & Equipment to be used in Training Centers
[Woodland, Washington]: Industrial Training International (ITI), is pleased to announce a new partnership with GKS Lifting and Moving Solutions. The partnership will provide end-users in the material handling space additional professional development and experience building opportunities around GKS’s unique rigging equipment.
“One of the often-overlooked benefits to attending a course at an ITI Training Center is the exposure all of our students get to equipment, tools, and hardware that maybe isn’t typically available at their work site,” notes Joseph Kuzar, Technical Director at ITI. “Allowing our students the opportunity to use GKS toe jacks, pumps, and dollies within our hands-on, problem solving workshops, under the guidance of our trainers, is extremely powerful and has the potential to reframe or recalibrate how specific load handling challenges are approached when they return to their respective teams.”
“The importance of proper training when conducting rigging and material handling activities cannot be understated.” said Benjamin Dobrowolski, Program Manager at GKS Lifting and Moving Solutions. “There are so many things that can go wrong when moving heavy machinery that the education that ITI provides can literally save lives. GKS looks forward to partnering with ITI to promote good rigging techniques and to help close the skills gap in the crane and rigging industry.”
The full scope of the partnership will include:
- The following equipment available to students at ITI Training Centers
- 5 Ton Hydraulic Toe Jacks
- PV Hydraulic Hand Pumps
- 6 Ton Transport Dollies
- 12 Ton Transport Dollies
- GKS product content and resources to be added to the Manufacturer & Thought Leader Content Library within the ITI Learning Hub
- A permanent equipment showcase space for GKS at the ITI Woodland, Washington Training Center
Georg Kramp began GKS-PERFEKT in Stuttgart, Germany in 1967. GKS specializes in manufacturing rigging and millwrighting equipment that allows for the transport of heavy loads without a crane or forklift. Known as an innovator in material handling, Georg invented the toe jack with an adjustable level toe, and the rotating dolly (also known colloquially as a “crazy skate”).
Our USA office stocks the German made hydraulic toe jacks, hydraulic pumps, and various types of industrial dollies from GKS in Springfield, OH with a lead time of next day.
We pride ourselves in being a German company that has invested in the Americas to not only grow our business, but to help others grow, too, with moving solutions that increase productivity. Learn more at www.gksweb.com.
