Corporate Profiles: Advance Lifts


Advance Lifts was founded in 1974 and quickly became the leading dock lift manufacturer in the country. Over the years, our product lines expanded to include production scissors lift tables, tilters, turntables, dumpers, work access lifts and mezzanine access lifts.

Since the beginning, “engineering excellence” has been the trademark of Advance Lifts products. Over the past decade, we have intensified our research and development program, and the value gap between our products and our competitors has increased significantly. Through our R&D efforts, Advance Lifts has developed our patented “Platform Centering Device,” which is now standard on all of our In-Plant production tables and greatly reduces the single greatest cause of lift wear.

Our “Ultra High Cycle” lift is the industry’s only scissors lift with a 3 million cycle warranty. We also have designed a positioning control system for production scissors lifts with a repeatable accuracy of +/- .030 inches. The point of all this research is to provide customers with superior value and service. Some of our breakthroughs can be applied to many of our standard products, while others are reserved for custom high-performance applications.

Whether you need a standard unit, a highly custom unit or something in between, let Advance’s engineering expertise work for you.
