Stertil-Koni to expand lift production capabilities

Posted on January 6, 2015

Stertil-Koni announced that its U.S. production facility, Stertil ALM, has purchased a 4.5 acre parcel adjacent to its current manufacturing plant in Streator, Ill.

The acquisition will enable Stertil ALM to remain in Streator, make an investment for future growth and further expand production of Stertil-Koni’s award-winning heavy duty vehicle lifts.

Stertil ALM intends to begin construction on the new parcel in the spring of 2015 and complete the expansion later in the year.

The additional manufacturing space will primarily be dedicated to the fabrication and assembly of the Stertil-Koni Diamond Lift, a full rise telescopic piston lift setting new standards in precision heavy-duty lifting, and Skylift — an “open floor” concept, true vertical-rise platform lift with no crossbeams, no overhang and no base frame.

Stertil ALM, already a major employer in Streator, anticipates that the expansion will further contribute to job creation in the area.

The expansion also comes on the heels of several recent enhancements to the existing facility, including an additional 14,000 square feet of production space added in 2011, including a new training center. In addition, it represents the next phase of a major capital investment at the facility and in the production of Stertil-Koni vehicle lifts.

Last year, Stertil ALM purchased and brought online a new, world-class cutting machine that utilizes a combination of plasma and oxy-fuel torches coupled with a state-of-the-art PC-based, touch screen controller for extremely fast, high-precision manufacturing — a major milestone in ALM’s strategic migration towards in-sourcing.

Stertil-ALM also purchased and installed an additional CNC machining center and a high capacity overhead crane to its facility in 2014.
