Vertical Freight Conveyors

Our VRC's are not freight elevators, but conveyors included under the scope of a national consensus safety standard ANSI/ASME B20.1 (Conveyors and Related Equipment). Our VRC's are safer than using a forklift truck or manpower to move materials between levels and are less costly to operate and maintain than elevators.

Whether you need the simplicity of a single-level hydraulic model, or the faster, continuous operation of a mechanical multi-level unit, our complete line of VRC's will meet your specific load, height and speed requirements.

Hydraulic or mechanical? Which is best for my application?

Our 3,000 pound lifts are excellent for auto dealerships and light warehousing applications or you we can design a lift to accommodate 10,000+ pounds for your heavy-weight jobs.


  • We use "beam mast" systems which utilizes structural wide flange beams for lifting masts; most competitors use "truss mast" systems using angles and other steel framing to build a truss or cage that is used for the mast.
  • Ours conveyors use less floor space.
  • Ours converyors have significantly less opportunity for structural failure.
  • Our pricing includes all enclosures and gates; competitors may not include these in their base price.
  • Our VRC's are designed by degreed MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS.
  • VRC are more economical than elevators. They can accommodate larger loads, both in size and weight.
  • Our installation includes mechanical and electrical; some competitors may only include mechanical.
  • VRC's have a smaller footprint then an incline conveyor, conserving valuable floor space.
