Heavy Duty Lifting That’s Safe, Secure and Certified!

10/09/2013 | 2013

As the world leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts, Stertil-Koni is dedicated to providing our customers with the very best in vehicle lifting systems, support and service.Our approach is comprised of three key steps to deliver the very best!

ALI Certification Program: As powerfully stated on the website of the Automotive Lift Institute, www.autolift.org, “Responsible automotive lift manufacturers make sure their lift models are certified and third party- marked by the requirements of the ALI/ETL Certification Program.” That is precisely why Stertil-Koni is so proud to have the greatest total number of ALI/ETL certified heavy-duty lifting products in the industry. Concurrent with this development, Stertil-Koni is also recognized as the fastest growing heavy-duty lift company in North America and continues to establish new, all-time records in sales performance and market penetration.

ALI Lift Inspector Certification: Lift safety is our top priority. That is why Stertil-Koni strongly supports ALI in its mission to expand the number of trained and certified lift inspectors. These professionals are essential to conducting critical performance evaluations on vehicle lifts of all types. According to ALI, the organization that developed the Lift Inspector Certification Program, this dynamic initiative was launched “in response to growing demand from businesses that use vehicle lifts, as well as the governmental health and safety organizations that monitor them.”

ALI notes that annual vehicle lift inspections conducted by a “qualified automotive lift inspector” are required by the ANSI National Standard covering vehicle lift operation, inspection, and maintenance (ANSI/ALI ALOIM: 2008) and are included by reference in regulations in the U.S. and Canada. Explained ALI president, Bob O’Gorman, “The new Certification Program will provide third-party assurance that a Certified Lift Inspector has been tested and proven competent to thoroughly inspect an installed vehicle lift and report on its suitability for continued use and/or the need for maintenance or repair.

Factory Authorized Service Technicians: Stertil-Koni takes heavy duty vehicle lift service and support to new heights with its Factory Authorized Service Technician – F.A.S.T. – program. Here, the company’s techs from across North America participate in a rigorous combination of classroom and hands-on vehicle lift training at the Stertil-Koni’s state-of-the-art manufacturing and learning center in Streator, Illinois. The result? A “top gun” team of heavy duty vehicle lift techs to provide the very best in service and support.
