FROM THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER
Last Full-Line Manufacturer In United States Of All Sized Lifts Located In Amsterdam
FONDA — The last full-line manufacturer that builds small car lifts all the way up to giant truck lifts, here in the United States, is located in Amsterdam. Mohawk Lifts has been making lifts for five decades and makes lifts that you simply can’t wear out. Led by president Steven Perlstein, Mohawk Lifts, is a leader in lift technology and offers environmentally safe above ground lifts.
Since 1981, Mohawk Lifts has manufactured the highest quality, safest auto and truck two-post lifts, four-post lifts and mobile column lifts available. Mohawk Lifts offers the most inclusive warranty in the service lift industry, in addition to its high-quality safety systems, design and construction.
In 2022, the Montgomery County Business Development Center worked with the leadership from Mohawk Lifts to prepare a Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) for an expansion project. The company was awarded a $300,000 Empire State Development (ESD) grant, which allows Mohawk Lifts to expand its operations by updating manufacturing equipment and processing by adding automation to their process, updating the steel cutting/burning table, investing in material handling and welding support equipment and creating a new factory floor layout to increase productivity and efficiency.
This project will also increase their workforce to handle the new growth and the improvements will support increases to market share and growth into material handling distribution lifts, an area of competitive advantage with leading technology, recently developed by the engineering team.
