Before Rotary was a company, it was a solution.
Peter Lunati, a technician looking for a better way to repair a car, was inspired by the sight of a barber chair rising in the air. If you can lift a chair, why not an automobile?
Not even a year later, in 1925, Lunati built the world's first automotive hydraulic lift. And Rotary Lift, the Company, was born.
More than 80 years later, Rotary has grown to become the world leader in lift productivity. Global operations extend from our headquarters in Madison, Indiana, throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia.
As part of the Dover Corporation, we have the resources and support of a Fortune 500 company. We are able to analyze products, trends, and techniques throughout the world, and then apply that knowledge toward the creation of new Rotary lifts.
We've been recognized by our peers with just about every accolade the industry offers. And by our customers — winning quality awards from industry leaders like Ford, Sears, Dealer Equipment and Services, Montgomery Ward, and others.
Our products have been selected win the "Top 5 Tools Award" from TechShop magazine and as one of the Top 20 Tools by Motor magazine.
Today, we're designing and building over 100 different models of surface and inground lifts. Engineering each one to be durable, powerful, and productive.
