Raymond to celebrate 90th anniversary Saturday

GREENE – Raymond Corporation celebrates a special birthday Saturday. Ninety winters and summers have come and gone since George Raymond Sr. bought a small foundry in Greene and opened the company’s doors.



Raymond has experienced a successful and distinguished manufacturing history since 1922. A few highlights since the early half of the 20th Century were: the patenting of the very first hydraulic hand pallet truck and double-faced pallet; the development of the first narrow aisle lift truck; the creation of the first computer-controlled drive system; and the introduction of the first AC-powered lift truck.

Through the years, the company has also engendered a close relationship with the Greene community. Raymond currently holds the title of leading employer in Chenango County and has ties to community organizations and outreach programs that extend even further.
