The 88,000 lb Combilift Straddle Carrier (Combi-SC) was recently installed at a large steel fabricator in Sterling Heights.
Lisa Harr, Account Manager, worked with this customer for several months to understand the needs of their operation to develop a custom solution for their operation. Given that this truck would be used to transport, store, and load heavy containers, Lisa knew the Combi-SC was exactly what the customer was looking for. The Combi-SC is the most economical handling solution for industries with heavy and oversized loads. Its maneuverability, light footprint and high customization offer complete independence when moving containers and oversized loads.
The Sterling Heights operations crew (Sr Technicians – John Bartkowiak, Jim Lehr Sr., Service Manager – John Kohls) partnered with a technical engineer at Combilift to have the unit ready in just two days.
This was Alta’s first Straddle Carrier installation in Michigan, but it’s Alta’s third overall. The first was an 80,000 lb unit went to South Bend, IN and the second was a 40,000 lb unit in Pennsylvania.
