Why APPI:  Known for high quality oysters since the 1940’s, Copps Island Oysters wanted an AC electric wire rope oyster hoist to replace the manual chain hoists they were using to transport oyster bins.

As they are a high volume producer, the hoist needed to be capable of heavy daily use.  One of our Columbia HC 1500 AC hoists was selected along with one of our 1-ton manual trollies for the application.

Its cast and machined construction along with minimal maintenance requirements appeal to Pogy Pogany, the maintenance manager at their production facility.

As it turned out he was so pleased with the unit he purchased a second one less than six months later.
