01 Jun Acculift Acquires Overhead Crane division of Engineered Lifting Systems (ELS)
Acculift is pleased to announce that we have acquired the Overhead Crane division of Engineered Lifting Systems (ELS) of Elmira, ON
This acquisition is part of the Acculift growth strategy across Canada. We look forward to working with the staff and customers of ELS in Ontario!
ELS (formerly Mentor Dynamics) was founded by Jim Muir in 1971 and quickly established itself in the Ontario market as an innovative company designing and engineering many custom lifting solutions. With a stellar reputation of experienced customer service and a genuine commitment to the quality and design of material handling equipment, ELS has developed a strong relationship with many of Ontario’s manufacturing companies over the years. In 2019 Gorbel Inc. of Fishers, NY purchased ELS with a prime focus on the Destuff-It portable ergonomic conveyor systems.
As of June 1st, 2021, Acculift has acquired the Overhead Crane and material handling division of ELS, while Gorbel will retain ownership of the manufacturing divisions and Destuff-It product group.
Acculift is now operating in Ontario with an established client base and an experienced staff with knowledge of the Ontario market. We look forward to working with you!
Our acquisition of this established Overhead Crane company immediately positions Acculift as a major player in serving the Ontario manufacturing market. This acquisition gives us an established client base to serve, dedicated local staff, and deepens our relationship with one of our major industry partners.
