PA: Stertil-Koni Heavy Duty Vehicle Lifts Selected by LANta for Recently Completed Modern Fleet Maintenance Facility

Stertil-Koni announced July 21 that The Leigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANta) has selected and installed a targeted range of the company’s  in-ground scissor lifts, platform lifts and wireless mobile column lifts for use in LANta’s recently completed, state-of-the-art, bus maintenance facility located in Allentown, Penn.

The modern, bright, 31,000 square-foot LANta service center, named the Armando V. Greco Maintenance Facility, represents a $12 million construction project that was five years in the planning and required 18 months to complete.  It replaces an older garage, dating back to 1953, and is approximately three times the size of its predecessor.

The facility now serves LANta’s fleet of 83 buses, including 24 new hybrid buses – each of which delivers fuel savings in excess of 40 percent over older, diesel models.

Noted Randy Flyte, director, materials and maintenance for LANta, “Safety is always priority number one – both for our riders as well as for our dedicated team of technicians who service our fleet.  That’s why we selected Stertil-Koni vehicle lifts, which are engineered to quickly, safely and efficiently raise our vehicles to facilitate the entire range of demanding, ongoing maintenance work.”

In making today’s announcement, Stertil-Koni President Jean DellAmore, stated, “In the demanding world of fleet maintenance, customers such as LANTa require heavy duty lifting systems that are safe, dependable and efficient.  To fully address these stringent requirements, Stertil-Koni is focused on a single mission: to engineer a broad range of superior lifting systems that are exclusively dedicated to serving the heavy duty market and provide users with the broadest possible ‘Freedom of Choice.’ “
