Genie Receives Washington Business Manufacturing Excellence Award | Powered Access

Terex Aerial Work Platforms' Genie brand recently received the Manufacturing Excellence Award for innovation from the Association of Washington Business (AWB).

Selected from hundreds of Washington businesses, Genie received the award due to its “significant progress in designing, developing and delivering a blockbuster product concept,” the AWB stated in a press release announcing this year’s award winners. “This honoree has maintained a competitive advantage by sustaining considerable innovation while remaining responsive to market demands. The products made at its facilities are unique and innovative.”

One innovative product introduced by Genie this year is the Genie SX™-180 boom, the world’s tallest of its kind. It has a platform height of 180 ft. and can be driven while fully extended. The stowed length shrinks it down to a 47 ft.  and the retracted width to 98 in. making it transportable without special over-width permits. The lift capacity is 750 lbs. The engineering vision is that this boom represents the direction for all future Genie “super booms.”

“Genie has a tremendous history in the state of Washington. The company started here and we have a very talented, skillful and diverse workforce,” said Matt Fearon, president of Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “We are proud to receive the Manufacturing Excellence Award for innovation from AWB and we thank them for the support they have given us over the years.”
