Handling Specialty currently operates two manufacturing facilities; 28,000 sq. feet at 219 South Service Road in Grimsby, Ontario and 80,000 sq. ft @ 1632 Burlington Street in Hamilton, Ontario.  The Grimsby facility, known as Plant I, also houses the head office.  The Hamilton facility (plant 2) manages the large-scale projects and those requiring large open test areas while the Grimsby facility handles smaller scale projects, pre-assemblies and R & D.  With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and highly-trained personnel, Handling Specialty will assess, design, manufacture and install custom material handling equipment specific to your applications.

The physical assets of our plant in Hamilton offers spans between columns for large horizontal builds and test track layouts, drive in trucking for safe efficient load in/out and tarping or overseas container prep. 

With less than 20 kilometres separating the two facilities, Handling's personnel have easy access to both, allowing for transfers and visits from the production, engineering and management staff when necessary. 

Plant I houses a smaller-scale Paint shop while plant II received a new large-scale Paint booth and new Blast booth in November of 2018, where all of our equipment is given professional, industrial-strength coats of high-quality paint before shipping to the customer.

Handling Specialty sells equipment all over the world, and so are proficient in the preparation of overseas shipping procedures. We ship from both Plant 1 and Plant 2.
