Southwest Lift & Equipment Inc., an exclusive distributor of Stertil-Koni, announced that to fully address growing customer demand for its lifting systems and attendant service capabilities, it has opened a new, dedicated sales, service and warehouse facility in Queen Creek, Ariz.
The new facility complements Southwest Lift & Equipment’s long-standing headquarters location in San Bernardino, Calif., according to an announcement.
Headed by President and CEO Dean McDonald, Southwest Lift & Equipment has established a well-earned reputation for providing exceptional customer support in all aspects of vehicle lift selection, installation and service, the company says.
“We are proud to offer our customers — which include public transit agencies, municipalities, pupil transportation providers, private trucking fleets, utilities and others — with the broadest range of high performance, durable and safe heavy duty vehicle lifting systems available anywhere,” McDonald says.
The new Arizona location will offer customers the entire portfolio of Stertil-Koni’s products, including the telescopic piston DiamondLift, scissor-style EcoLift, full vertical rise platform SkyLift, award-winning mobile column lifts and a line of shop equipment engineered for safety, performance and productivity.
At the core of Southwest Lift & Equipment’s growth has been its unwavering focus on customer support and service.
“To serve new and existing customers in Southern California and Arizona, we are extremely proud to have on staff five ALI Certified Lift Inspectors, each of whom has successfully completed the rigorous training and practical experience required to achieve this acclaimed level of lift expertise as certified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI),” McDonald says.
“This is a major upgrade. Our service team has grown, and we have exciting plans in place to continue this forward direction for the company,” says Southwest Lift & Equipment Sales/Service Manager Adison Cayo.
“Southwest Lift & Equipment has long been a top performer in the Stertil-Koni distributor network. Under Dean’s leadership, the team shares our commitment to delivering the highest levels of professionalism coupled with a customer-centric philosophy. We congratulate them on their new Arizona location and look forward to their continued success and partnership,” says Stertil-Koni President Dr. Jean DellAmore.
