Genie Lift Proudly Admits to Turning 40

Wednesday 30 October 2013 @ 10:21

Forty years ago, in 1973, designers were striving to produce a new material lift. Ultimately it was named the Genie Lift and today we refer to it simply as the GL.

Over the intervening years since 1973, we have seen an enormous number of new and exciting machines developed by Genie and put into the workplace. Often it’s easy to forget where it all began and how far the Genie engineers have brought our products.

This simple lift is responsible for spawning a range which now boasts four model heights, multiple load handling configurations, and a lifting capacity of up to 227kg /500 lbs. With many thousands of units sold, it’s hard to imagine all of the tasks this lift has completed over the years.
