About AIMCO Manufacturing

 

AIMCO Manufacturing began operations in 1993 with the procurement of designs for an industrial manipulator and an articulated jib crane previously manufactured for direct sale to the automotive industry. AIMCO re-designed and expanded this equipment and began marketing through material handling distributors to industrial markets as a whole.

 

 AIMCO has continued to grow through the development of new products and the addition of new distributors and markets. Today AIMCO products are helping the production processes of a vast array of goods and services in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Taiwan and China.

 

In the transportation industry, AIMCO lift assist products handle components for most major manufacturers of automobiles, trucks, fork lifts, tractors, aircraft, trains, boats, snowmobiles and motorcycles. Building products such as garage doors, furniture, insulation, windows, kitchen and bath appliances are handled by AIMCO lift assist equipment. The medical equipment and food processing equipment industries utilize AIMCO lift assist equipment. AIMCO equipment can be found in a number of communication and entertainment industries handling computers, copy machines and televisions. AIMCO products are helping reduce injuries in steel producing, metal forming, machining and foundry operations nationwide.

Standard lead times vary, depending on the complexity and size of the project, from 3 to 9 weeks after signed approval.

Yes, we often integrate with supplied lifting mechanisms such as air hoists & air balancers, as well as bridge crane systems.  We have the ability to integrate with all types of material handling equipment, as long as CAD drawings are supplied.

 

How can I feel confident that my lifting system will work as intended?

Fabrication, finishing and assembly are done in house, followed by a final product review with the distributor and or end user; this gives the customer an opportunity to operate the equipment prior to shipping.  If an in-person product review (run off) is not feasible, a detailed approval video will be submitted.
