Stertil-Koni USA, the leader in heavy-duty vehicle lifts, announced its U.S. manufacturing facility, Stertil ALM, located in Streator, Ill., recently produced its 7,500th unit made in the U.S.

Coming off the production line to achieve this historic milestone for the company was the ebright ST 1085 cabled mobile column lift — a durable, efficient heavy-duty vehicle lift capable of lifting 18,500 lbs. per column or 74,000 lbs. for a set of four. The ebright ST 1085 is ideally suited for a broad-range of vehicle lifting jobs, including transit, school and articulated buses; municipal work and utility vehicles; military, fire, and rescue vehicles; and multiple axle trucks.

To commemorate the occasion, four ebright ST 1085s, including the 7,500th production lift, received a custom silver paint coating, adorned with a commemorative brass plaque signed by the entire production team at Stertil ALM.

This set of four, one-of-a-kind mobile column lifts was then auctioned off at Stertil-Koni’s recently celebrated 21st annual distributor meeting, held in Stevensville, Md. and Washington D.C., with a portion of the proceeds allocated for charity.

“We are extremely proud to manufacture world-class heavy-duty vehicle lifts right here in the United States, said Dr. Jean DellAmore, Stertil-Koni USA’s president. “Our team and products embody this sense of tremendous pride and Stertil-Koni’s ongoing dedication to building jobs — and world-class heavy duty vehicle lifting systems — right here at home.”
