SMR Investments has acquired Refuse Parts LLC, manufacturers of the patent-pending DuaLift and KwikLift container hoist systems. A private investment company, SMR also owns RPI of Indiana Inc, a manufacturer of front load containers, and Cooper Tank and Welding Corp, which makes roll-off containers.
The DuaLift hoist, introduced in 2005, can service both hooklift type roll-off containers and cable hoist containers. Conversion of the hoist to handle one or the other type of container takes a few minutes and can be done by the operator en route. The KwikLift is the cable version of the hoist without the hooklift mechanism, which can later be retrofitted if desired.
