No sign of retirement
23 January 2013
The ever first mobile yardramp built by Thorworld Industries is still going strong more than twenty-five years after its original manufacture â€“ continuing to bring increased efficiency and cost savings to Tivac Alloys.
'Ramp No.1,' as it is affectionately known by its manufacturer, was built in 1986. The yardramp delivered many years of continuous reliable service for Claymore Grass Machinery, before Claymore replaced it with an upgraded Thorworld model in 2005. Ramp No. 1 was then restored and put on display at Thorworld head office, until being called back into active service for Tivac - where it is used to plug a logistical loop - in 2009.
