“More Than Just a Cab”
Broadening Cab Capabilities
As the pace of operator interface technologies has quickened, several cab manufacturers have realized that being able to design, prototype, test, and manufacture a fully integrated cab system is essential for faster time-to-delivery for OEM customers.
GSGR offers a broad product portfolio and engineering expertise ranging from hydraulic to electronic, mechanical and software capabilities. With the acquisition of ADC Equipment Innovations (news link) GS Global Resources is able to offer a single point of contact for OEM customers in search of fully-integrated cabs.
“We’ve always delivered pragmatic system and component design, innovative and reliable technologies, as well as production and market support through a single point of engineering accountability,” GS Global Resources President John Thornton says. “Now ADC Equipment Innovations makes interacting with us even easier for customers.
“Acquiring this highly-specialized technical knowledge of designing and building structures to protect machine operators reduces cost, decreases engineering effort and time, and streamlines manufacturing processes for OEMs,” Thornton adds.
GS Global Resources (GSGR) announced its acquisition of ADC Custom Products (now renamed ADC Equipment Innovations)—a leader in ROPS and FOPS systems for heavy-duty equipment—back in February of 2018 (read more, 21047770).
