Vacuworx

As part of its commitment to continuous innovation, Vacuworx has engineered significant updates to its flagship line of RC Series Vacuum Lifting Systems. All changes are designed to maximize safety while minimizing down time on the job. In addition, the lifters are "smarter" than ever before by incorporating a CAN bus system to provide real-time diagnostics and enhanced safety features.

Vacuworx has announced the promotion of two employees and three new hires as it expands the marketing and strategy teams in support of global growth. A manufacturer of vacuum lifting technology, Vacuworx is celebrating 20 years of building an industry this year.

Vacuworx has introduced the next generation of its SL 2 subcompact vacuum lifting system. Originally launched in 2016, the SL 2 was the first compact equipment attachment in the company's growing lineup of products for the concrete construction industry.

Vacuum lifting technology offers an effective approach to moving materials on tough concrete demolition and construction, road and landscaping projects. Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company, has partnered with Tulsa-based Vacuworx to bring the benefits of vacuum lifting technology to an expanded network of underground construction contractors, landscapers, municipalities and utilities.

How do you move a 30 ft. (9 m) concrete road barrier into position while traffic keeps rushing by? Until now, contractors had to rely on straps, chains and gravity, with the need for workers on the ground to help control the swing and rotation of the material.

Vacuworx is honored to receive the 2017 Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting for the second time in four years. Steve Smith, director of international sales, accepted the award on behalf of Bill Solomon, Vacuworx president, presented April 13 at the 34th Annual Oklahoma World Trade Conference at the Oklahoma City University Meinders School of Business.

With a lighter weight, smaller size and brand new attachment options, the Vacuworx AMC Series Lifting Systems can truly go where no other vacuum lifters have gone before. The AMC 6 and AMC 4 models operate in conjunction with compact to mid-sized excavators, as well as with truck mounted articulating cranes, using the hydraulic power from the host machine without a significant reduction in the equipment's overall lifting capacity.

Highway construction projects can be particularly challenging, especially when space is limited, roadways are crowded and time is short. Time and budget constraints make it necessary to get the work done faster. Traffic-heavy construction locations make safety a priority.

Vacuworx recently hired George M. Denny as the Gulf Coast sales director and will be based out of Houston, Texas. Denny possesses more than 30 years of sales, operations, fleet management, marketing, and dealer development experience. Recently, he worked as the sales/marketing director and branch manager of one of the largest Komatsu, Manitowoc crane and Wirtgen dealers in the nation.
