Since 1992, PowerLift has exemplified quality, reliability and service in the development of hydraulic door systems to suit any application. Every door is custom built, delivered and installed by factory trained, certified PowerLift professionals.
PowerLift has a sterling reputation through unwavering commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. Established in 1992, the PowerLift design became the gold standard in aviation, agriculture, commercial and architectural doors. Rapid expansion led to construction of a much larger shop. PowerLift door inquiries began coming in from all over North America.
Realizing that it is impossible for one manufacturing facility to offer local installation, service and support across a continent we entered a new expansion phase. We found other steel fabricators who share our customer centered quality and service ideals. Instead of a single production point, PowerLift now has over 40 manufacturing and service centers across North America.
Our single source accountability business model means every PowerLift location offers professional design, sales, manufacturing, delivery, installation and support.
Please see our ' Locations' page for a location near you. Look over our project pictures for details on PowerLift projects in many applications.
