7,000 lb. steel building light as air at Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE See full news coverage/photos

At 11 a.m. Friday, November 6, the media are invited to view how a 7,000 lb. steel building can be moved by hand, using no heavy equipment in fact, using nothing but air. The move will take place at Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc., 1649 Tippecanoe Street, Terre Haute, Indiana.

No, hovercraft will not tow the building but, yes, hovercraft technology is involved in a very unique way.

The steel building was constructed onsite at Neoteric as a fireproof storage facility for company documents. Now completed, it must be moved from the factory, across Neoteric’s property, and into place adjacent to the office. Typically, a crane would be utilized to move such a building. However, bringing in a crane would involve closing streets and removing power lines, as well as removing trees and damaging the landscape.

But with the simple power of air and some innovative thinking, 7,000 pounds of steel becomes light as air and will glide over the landscape without disturbing the environment or disrupting business-as-usual in any way. Come see it happen!

Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. is the world’s original light hovercraft manufacturer, with clientele in more than 50 nations. For more information, visit www.neoterichovercraft.com.
