The Genie brand was born in 1966 with the original Genie® Hoist. The product was a unique portable pneumatic lift that was so successful, it launched the development of a full range of material lifts and aerial work platforms used throughout the world today.

Many attempts have been made to emulate the innovative design of Genie material lifts, which is a testament to the originality and industry leadership of the Genie brand.

Now, almost five decades after the first Genie Hoist was developed, the key factors behind the success of the Genie material lifts remain the cornerstone of the products: innovation, lightweight, and easy to use. The lifts are purposefully designed to enhance productivity in a wide variety of applications.

As well as the attributes of quality, durability and performance embodied in the Genie brand, Genie offers genuine parts, service and support across Australia and New Zealand.
