Build Your Dreams (BYD), a supplier of battery-powered electric transit and coach buses, has selected and uses Stertil-Koni heavy-duty vehicle lifting systems in its 550,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Lancaster, CA.
BYD builds fully electric transit buses ranging in size from 30 to 60 feet, double-decker coaches ranging from 23 to 45 feet, and articulated buses that are 60 feet in length. The facility is also responsible for final assembly of medium and heavy-duty trucks used for cargo handling at ports and railroad yards, refuse collection and food and package delivery.
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.
