MD: Stertil-Koni Awarded Major Competitive Bid from CenterPoint Energy To Deliver and Install 21 of its Heavy Duty In-ground Piston Vehicle Lifting Systems

Stertil-Koni on June 9 announced that it has been awarded a major competitive bid to provide 21 of its heavy duty in-ground vehicle lifting systems to CenterPoint Energy.

A key component of the award calls for Stertil-Koni, which is the industry leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts, to deliver 21 of the company’s highly regarded in-ground telescopic piston lifting systems – the Diamond Lift.  In making the announcement, Stertil-Koni President Jean DellAmore noted,  “The ground breaking Diamond Lift series has been designed to overcome the limitations of traditional in ground piston lifts by applying thoughtful engineering and environmental focus to ensure that hydraulic fluid always remains fully contained and above ground -- in a free-standing console that is easily accessible. In that way, the hydraulic fluid remains in a reservoir above ground, while the lift mechanism itself is contained within a separate, sealed steel cassette.  The result is optimal performance and durability.”

“In addition,” he continued, “the Diamond Lift’s piston rods are hard-chrome plated for maximum protection against corrosion and wear and the Series 64, which has two pistons for a total lifting capacity of up to 64,000 lbs., utilizes biodegradable oil.”
