Autoquip Corporation was founded in 1947 in Chicago, Illinois. And in 1974, we relocated to our current location: a 175,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

As a leader in the material handling industry, we hold ourselves to an unmatched standard of quality, reliability, and customer service.


Our operation consists of a largely systems-driven manufacturing process that includes precision automated cutting and boring machines. We also depend on our skilled lift craftsmen, a full quality assurance program, and mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical engineers who cater to customer needs and design each lift using the latest software and manufacturing techniques.


Autoquip continues to make a commitment to providing our customers with full engineering capability and support. With a staff of degreed mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical engineers supported by state-of-the-art design and manufacturing software, Autoquip has built an engineering organization capable of achieving our customers' every design need.


Quality point of sale and exceptional product support are among our most important guiding principles. Our sales and service departments are uniquely qualified to understand both the material handling industry and individual customer needs, and apply their knowledge when providing customers with a positive Autoquip experience.


We pride ourselves in offering products made exclusively in the U.S.A. Because our lifts are produced in America, we're able to provide reliable products, better value, more flexibility in product offerings, and highly responsive customer service. We refuse to compromise these values, and because of that, we will remain firmly planted in America's heartland.


As a subsidiary of the family-owned Miner Enterprises, Autoquip Corporation has received more than 40 years of continuity and financial stability. Because of this corporate support, we enjoy consistent and continued growth. Capital expenditures are expensive investments, and our customers value a vender who is guaranteed to be there for all future parts and product support.


In 2009, Autoquip purchased American Lift from Columbus McKinnon Corporation. American brings a premium quality product design to the Autoquip range of products. In buying American Lifts, Autoquip committed to providing all of American lifts and parts, and to greatly improve on-time delivery and quality. Today we have achieved this goal and have expanded our American Lift customer base.


Autoquip Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary, of privately held Miner Enterprises. Miner Enterprises headquarters is located in Geneva, Illinois.
