Its name means field-proven standard.

Complete with its custom designed attachments, UNIMOVE LLC has the highest quality and broadest capability of vacuum tube lifters, according to Bob Shannon, managing director.

Located at 1145-C Little Gap Highway in Palmerton, the business was formed by a group of individuals this past November to purchase the assets of UniTech Industries of Palmerton, Shannon said.

"We moved here Feb. 1," Shannon said. "It's perfect for the manufacturing that we do."

The company has custom and stock vacuum lifter attachments for industrial material handling applications. It continues to manufacture UniMove ergonomic vacuum tube lifters for the pharmaceutical, food, woodworking and general industries, Shannon said.

Shannon said UNIMOVE was the original U.S. manufacturer of vacuum tube lifters, and added the product line has the highest quality and broadest capabilities of this type of product in the market today.

The company will hold its semiannual shareholders meeting Friday and Saturday.
