Why APPI: Phil Shifflet, sales representative for Ferebee-Johnson Company, an industrial suppliers located in Harrisonburg, VA, told us he was approached by production personnel at George’s Foods in search of a pneumatic or AC electric hoist to be used in a hazardous location. As the hoist was a key part of the production process, reliability and low maintenance were key purchasing drivers for them.
