The BYD team at the Lancaster location selected the Stertil-Koni ST 1085 cabled Mobile Column Lifts for its facility.

At the plant, technicians on the shop floor can place ST 1085 lifts into four- and six-column configurations, with the latter central to the production and inspection of BYD’s extra-long, 60-foot articulated buses.

Helping to make it all happen was Southwest Lift & Equipment Inc., Stertil-Koni distributor based in San Bernardino, Calif., providing vehicle lifts, shop equipment and service in Southern California and Arizona.
