Stertil-Koni USA, a provider of heavy-duty lifts for the vehicle maintenance industry, has announced the completion of two key acquisitions.
On July 1, Stertil-Koni USA’s parent company, Stertil B.V., acquired ALM Corp., based in Streator, Ill. ALM, a 23-year-old manufacturer of lifts, has been noted for quality manufacturing. Stertil-Koni says the ALM acquisition fulfills its goal of establishing a world-class manufacturing presence in the United States and a platform from which to supply the increasing global demand for the company’s full range of products.
On July 2, Stertil B.V. acquired the full assets of Fleet America Service Technology, a Maryland corporation located in Manheim, Pa. Fleet America Service Technology is responsible for the development and fabrication of an innovative shallow pit-designed heavy-duty scissors lift. The patent-pending multi-scissors lift is designed to offer the optimum in axle-based vehicle lifting. The proprietary lift will continue to be manufactured in the Manheim facility, located one hour east of Harrisburg.
“Stertil-Koni’s strategic goal was to manufacture and market a full range of high-quality lifting devices for the heavy-duty user, and that remains our strategy today,” says Jean DellAmore, president of Stevensville, Md.-based Stertil-Koni. “The integration of these two companies into Stertil-Koni’s portfolio allows the company to offer the widest spectrum of heavy-duty lifting devices available anywhere on the planet. It fulfills Stertil-Koni’s long-term objective of becoming the global one-stop shop for all potential users of heavy-duty lifts.”
