Truck lift manufacturer credits products engineering, customer service, local expertise for record sales

Stertil-Koni, which specializes in hydraulic bus and truck lifts, produced record sales in 2019, according to the company.

Jean DellAmore, Stertil-Koni president, pointed to their expertise in the municipal and private sectors of the heavy duty vehicle lift market in the US and Canada, “exceptional” product engineering, and a “world-class” distribution network as the three most critical factors in the company’s success.

“We are true specialists—entirely focused on the design, manufacture and service of heavy duty vehicle lifts,” DellAmore said.

“Second, Stertil-Koni is dedicated to exceptional product engineering that in turn directly translates into unparalleled lift performance, durability and safety. And third, our customers are supported by a world-class, highly trained network of distributor companies, each of which has an average tenure of 15 years, is exclusive to Stertil-Koni in its respective geographic territory and embodies our vision to ensure the highest level of customer care in the industry.

“The result is a unique combination of global product expertise fused with intensive, locally delivery customer support.”

Stertil-Koni’s growth strategy includes building on its legacy of producing the industry’s best Mobile Column Lifts, while expanding and diversifying its offerings to “reshape the inground heavy duty vehicle lifting market,” the company maintained, as exemplified by two key product additions.

“Our DIAMONDLIFT is a high-pressure, low-volume telescopic piston lift capable of lifting up to 105,000 pounds in a three-piston configuration, and setting new standards for inground lifts,” DellAmore said.

DIAMONDLIFT features include:

  • Electronic synchronization for maximum safety and convenience;
  • Mechanical locking system utilizing hardened, nitro-carburized locking rod for maximum protection;
  • Touch-screen, finger-tip control console for ease-of-use;
  • Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Gold Certification from the industry’s leading third-party watchdog; and a
  • Continuous Recess movable lifting system—ideal for low-clearance vehicles.

“Strong” sales of the ECOLIFT, an ultra-shallow, full-rise, axle-engaging scissor-style lift, in 2019 bolstered Stertil-Koni’s success, the company said.

“ECOLIFT is available in a two-, three- and four-scissor configuration with an ALI-certified lifting capacity of 30,000 pounds per scissor,” said Peter Bowers, a technical sales manager for Stertil-Koni. “It is ideal for installation in both retrofit and existing workshops—and that helps account for its widespread use.”

ECOLIFT is differentiated by its ultra-shallow pit design—only 34 inches—and delivers wheels-free lifting, electronic synchronization and Continuous Recess, along with a free-standing console for easy access and quick service.

“Stertil-Koni’s success really reflects our values and the way that we treat our closest friends and families,” DellAmore asserted. “Simply put, we care deeply about the Stertil-Koni customer and we try to make that shine through everything we do and the manner in which we treat our customers.

“Looking ahead, there is much more for Stertil-Koni to accomplish in 2020 and our energy is laser-focused on delivering new enhancements and heightened levels of support to our customer across North America.”
