SLIFT was founded by Frank E. Sommerer as a one-man business in 1977. The company initially focused on the production of pit jacks. Over the next ten years, SLIFT was able to increase its staff to 44 workers. Today, we employ some 120 people.
In recent years, the company has gained a reputation as one of the best-known manufacturers of vehicle lifting platforms in Germany. We are also considered to be a specialist supplier of underfloor lifting platform technology and pit jacks for the automotive industry.
All our products are, of course, Made in Germany. On 1 January 2001, SLIFT was acquired by MAHA Maschinenbau Haldenwang GmbH & Co. KG and has since traded as SLIFT - a brand of MAHA Maschinenbau Haldenwang GmbH & Co. KG.
