UpRight is widely regarded globally as the true founder of the modern access industry. This multi-billion dollar global access industry owes its origins to the founder of UpRight, Wallace "Wally" Johnson, a true innovator who single handedly created what would soon evolve into true global markets for both scaffold towers and aerial lift platforms.
About UpRight Lifts
Mr. Johnson, a skilled mechanical engineer from Berkeley, California was an astute businessman as well as a great inventor and he immediately recognized the commercial potential for his adjustable towers. He founded UpRight Scaffolds, which soon outgrew his small workshop in Berkeley and moved to larger premises in the winter of 1947. After achieving global domination, Wallace Johnson set out to create the world's first mobile aerial work platform.
In 1972, he opened a new factory and began to produce the "Flying Carpet" scissor lift. This innovative product soon outstripped scaffolding as the company's primary source of revenue.
When Wally died in 1980, UpRight was sold, but his pioneering spirit has continued to shine.
UpRight Lift Models
UpRight expanded their range of boom and scissor lift products with the 'X-Series' scissor lifts, followed by UpRight's first sigma arm lift, the SL20, in 1986. A speed level version which self-levels on rough terrain was introduced in 1990. It remains a unique machine even to this day.
During the 1990s, UpRights range of powered access platforms quadrupled. The first trailer mounted boom, the TL33, was announced in 1995, followed in 1996 by UpRights first self-propelled boom, the SP37 (now remodeled as the AB38).
UpRights appetite for innovation took compact scissor lift design to new heights in 1996, with the launch of the MX15 and MX19 micro-scissors.
