J.R. Clancy licenses Front-Loading Arbor, Arbor Trap and SuperArbor

North America – Grid Well Inc. (GWI) has announced that J.R. Clancy has signed a licence agreement for the manufacture and sale of its patented Front-Loading Arbor, its patent pending safety device the Arbor Trap and the SuperArbor.

J.R. Clancy is one of the largest and most important manufacturers of stage rigging equipment in the world. By licensing the Front-Loading Arbor and Trap, Clancy takes the lead in the first major retooling of counterweight rigging in over 100 years.

Since 1885, J.R. Clancy has supported innovation in rigging technology. Company founder John Clancy was a designer of stage equipment. Being a stagehand himself, he knew how important safety, creativity and reliability were backstage. Not only did Clancy patent his own ideas, his company produced and marketed product patented by others. His main concerns were to build a highly reputable business while improving the way stagehands did their work; he embraced good ideas because they were good ideas. John’s tradition continues.

Patrick Finn, product manager at J.R. Clancy, said: “Safety awareness has been growing rapidly

in our industry and the front loading arbor is a great option to improve both safety and ergonomics. We are looking forward to more innovations that make what we do easier and safer.”

"I am ve ry pleased to be working with the Clancy team,” states GWI President Rick Boychuk. “Mike Murphy, president of JR Clancy, and I agree that safety is the top priority. The Front Loading Arbor and the Arbor Trap raise the bar on safety.”
