LiftOne Solutions for the Metal Industry

The metal industry is an intense sector with countless challenges for organizations to navigate daily. Every metal professional, from fabricators and construction professionals to recyclers and machinists, faces unique hurdles that they must navigate daily. Working with heavy loads, operating within hot and demanding environments, and maintaining high employee satisfaction are just a few of the difficulties within this industry. 

At LiftOne, we strive to resolve these potential on-the-job challenges with premium equipment and operational solutions. Our equipment selection holds the key to increasing your competitive advantage while successfully tackling a range of concerns. 


Metal fabrication is a vital sector that sustains workflows across industries such as automotive, construction and manufacturing. Any disruption in operations can have downstream negative effects. Therefore, the careful selection of the right equipment and material handling partner is crucial to ensure the safety and smooth operation of your fleet. 

Worker Safety

Space Constraints

The metal sector puts workers in challenging conditions. Implementing operator assist tools, utilizing high-performing material handling equipment built for operator safety and ensuring your team is up to date on training can help keep your team safe and reduce incidents.


  • Introduce routine training courses covering safety, technical skills and OSHA regulations to ensure workers are up to date on the industry's best practices.
  • Consider adding operator-assist technology that supports operator awareness, reinforces best practices, and helps reduce incidents and damages.
  • Choose explosion-proof equipment from Hyster® and Yale® that is ergonomically designed to protect operators and reduce musculoskeletal problems.
