Why APPI: CTech Manufacturing in Weston, WI designs and builds tool carts and cabinets for heavy duty use applications such as in race car trailers (About » CTech Manufacturing)

When they determined the addition of an overhead lift would improve their production process they contacted  Handling Systems International for assistance.

Bret Lussow, Director of Business Development at HSI, provided them with a freestanding crane with an enclosed track trolley system.  After consulting with us, he selected one of our  Columbia HC1500-1A25-L-15 strap hoists with variable speed control to provide the lifting.  The aluminum mounting plate we provided made the installation very easy.

Bret says:  I was able to visit C-tech Manufacturing yesterday.  The hoist is working great for them.  Here are a few photos for you.  Thanks again for all your help!…   Hope we can do more work together in the future.

Please contact us if you would like more information about this particular production line strap hoist or any of our other products and services.
