Builtrite™ Handlers and Attachments (formerly Northshore Manufacturing) was founded in 1989 and is located in Two Harbors, Minnesota, U.S.A., along the North Shore of Lake Superior. The company manufactures custom, stationary electric material handlers (also known as stationary electric excavators), truck mounted material handlers (also known as knuckle boom loaders), and a wide variety of attachments for use in the solid waste industries (waste transfer, material recovery facilities (MRF), waste to energy plants, etc.), scrap recycling, foundation drilling, railroad maintenance, general construction and mining industries. Builtrite shifted its marketing focus shortly after it was founded from timber harvesting and logging to these new, growing markets. Builtrite products can be found all over North America and internationally.
