Lifting Technologies has a team of experienced engineers and welders ready to help make your workplace safer.


Lifting Technologies offers the ability to have CAD fabrication and approval drawings produced for customers with the additional option of having these stamped by a professional engineer. With in-house powder coating, nearly all platforms produced to receive a high-quality finish, with the majority being in red, blue, or yellow and black colors.

We also have the option of an additional "zinc-enriched primer coat" powder coat under the finished color of your choice to increase the longevity of your platform's finish.


Lifting Technologies was the first company in the US to manufacture man baskets that complied with new OSHA regulations in 1988. Later, we added additional types of platforms to our line-up. Over 30 years later, we have continued to lead the way in safety and quality for man baskets and material platforms.
