Why APPI:  
Greg Lovine, the Project Manager for Subzero was researching winch and hoist manufacturers for a unit that would work in the recovery vans they were building for the City of New York when he found the strap hoist we provided to load bariatric patients into ambulances.  As it turned out, this unit was an ideal match for the Chief Medical Examiner’s needs to be able to move deceased individuals into their refrigerated trucks.

As is true with many of the applications for which we supply product this is not a glamorous type of work but it is a necessary municipal function. The direct beneficiaries of these winches are the operators and drivers who will be relieved from the arduous task of moving very heavy loads into their vans for transport.

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