Stertil-Koni announced a major capital investment at its U.S. manufacturing facility, Stertil ALM, located in Streator, Ill.
The enhancements represent completion of the first phase of a substantial, ongoing commitment to plant modernization and efficiency. At the Streator facility, Stertil ALM focuses on the production of a broad range of Stertil-Koni heavy duty vehicle lifts, including mobile column lifts, platform lifts, ECOLIFT and the recently introduced DIAMOND LIFT.
In making today’s announcement, Allan Pavlick, vice president, Stertil ALM, stated “We are now online with a new, world-class cutting machine that utilizes a combination of plasma and oxy-fuel torches coupled with a state-of-the-art PC-based, touch screen controller for extremely fast, high-precision manufacturing. As a result, the company now has the ability to cut virtually all components required, in-house, continuing our strategic migration towards in-sourcing.”
Stertil-ALM also added two new, high capacity overhead cranes to its facility.
Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni USA, said “These new innovations permit us to save time and money, while simultaneously enabling Stertil ALM to expand its commitment to hiring local workers. From a broader perspective, our investment in the latest technology also enables Stertil-Koni to bring product to market even more quickly and expand the company’s leadership in the design and production of top-rated heavy duty vehicle lifts.”
