Stertil-Koni's U.S. production facility, Stertil ALM in Streator, Ill. – is well on track to produce its 15,000th Mobile Column Lift in 2021.
“From delivery vans and pumper trucks to school buses and fire engines, from agricultural vehicles and airport tugs to Class 8 tractor trailers and utility trucks, Stertil-Koni Mobile Column Lifts can easily raise them all,” explained Stertil-Koni President, Dr. Jean DellAmore.
Stertil-Koni Mobile Column Lifts, which utilize dependable hydraulic technology, are available in wireless, cabled, and EARTHLIFT models. All feature rapid lifting and lowering, maximum strength high tensile DOMEX steel, full-color touch-screen controls, mechanical locking systems, as well as overload protection and synchronization.
The forthcoming production milestone of Mobile Column Lifts follows a multi-year plant expansion at Stertil ALM in which the company purchased a 4.5 acre parcel adjacent to its long-standing facility and completed a 36,000 foot expansion designed to deliver enhanced flow and efficiencies in production.
The growth at Stertil ALM, a major employer in the Streator area, is part of a long-term strategic initiative to boost its in-sourcing capabilities. Previously, Stertil ALM added 14,000 square feet of production space, which included the purchase of state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment as well as the construction of a modern, hands-on training center.
