NOV Lifting & Handling Group

So now that they have closed our facility down in Covington and laid everyone off what going to happen to the SOB's in Houston and the AmClyde and Unit product line????

Gateshead great news And this is why Gateshead is staying open.

Run while u can!

Run from this dead sh--ty rathole while you can. It'll be sold out in small pieces to GE and others & in any case old nov crowd will be got rid of by new owners.
