ABOUT DILLON IN Manufacturing & Engineering

Most manufacturing floors vary greatly in what they do and how they operate, but they all have one thing in common that Dillon helps make possible… safety. 

You can’t visit a plant without hearing about safety and watching a video on it.  But no matter how safe you are, accidents can happen.  Dillon load limit devices prevent overload and line slack on your hoists making the accidental operator error a training opportunity instead of a line shutdown, or worse.
