The Raymond Corporation in Greene is the Greater Binghamton Chamber Business of the Week.

Raymond is a global provider of material handling products, specifically manual and electric lift trucks, and solutions such as iWAREHOUSE which helps companies manage their lift truck fleets, labor efficiencies and warehouses.

It was established in 1922 when founder George Raymond, Senior purchased into Lyons Iron Works.

The company has been an innovator since its beginning, patenting the first hand pallet truck, as well as the first double-faced wooden pallet in 1934.

Raymond says it's been experiencing record performance and growth, and as a result, has almost doubled its employment in the last three years.
