Elephant Material Handling ProductsBraxton-Bragg has been chosen as the exclusive North American distributor for Elephant material handling products. Elephant, based in Rimini, Italy, produces jib cranes and vacuum lifters for the stone industry and other industries where heavy lifting is required. Elephant jib cranes and vacuum lifters are manufactured in several different sizes and load-bearing capacities.

“We announced our new partnership at the TISE show in January,” said product manager Matt Maples. “Elephant offers manual and automatic vacuum lifters, both are very well made and durable. Elephant jib cranes fill an important niche in our product offering. We are very pleased to be able to offer these quality, heavy-lifting products to our customers.”

Elephant was founded in 1979. Over  the past 40 years, the company has excelled in producing products designed to solve engineering problems in the careful handling of materials in the industrial and artisanal fields, like marble, steel and glass. To date, Elephant has over 70,000 systems for lifting and handling materials deployed worldwide.

Today, thanks to the passion for excellence of the owners and the professionalism of the technical staff, Elephant has taken a progressive path in the production process, producing innovative products, working to continually improve customer service, and achieving a substantial increase in production through the acquisition of technologically advanced equipment and a recent program of company expansion.

Throughout 2019, Braxton-Bragg is planning a year-long celebration to commemorate 25 years of providing quality tooling and supplies to the stone and tile industries. Founded in 1994 by Doug Slocum and partner Ron Weiler, Braxton-Bragg has grown from a start-up to a national distributor with international ties.

From floor polishing machines and powders, to diamond pads and discs, Braxton-Bragg has all you need to grind, polish and restore concrete, stone or tile floors. For more information on the company or their products visit their redesigned website www.braxton-bragg.com .
