About UpRight Lifts
Originally UpRight Scaffolds, UpRight equipment is widely recognized around the world as the original product that opened up the modern access industry. After humble beginnings in founder Wally Johnson’s workshop in California in 1947, the company began creating the world's first mobile aerial work platform. The UpRright lift factory opened in 1972 and started production on an innovative new UpRight scissor lift that would serve new global markets for scaffold towers and aerial lifts. Since then, the UpRight equipment, or UpRight Powered Access, has been moved under the Snorkel brand name.
UpRight Lift Features
The UpRight lift product range expanded greatly with the 'X-Series' UpRight scissor lifts, followed by the first sigma arm UpRight lift. A speed level version of UpRight man lift, which self-levels on rough terrain, was introduced in 1990 and remains a unique machine to this day. In the 1990s, the UpRight platform range quadrupled. A trailer-mounted boom was introduced, followed by the first self-propelled UpRight boom lift. Their innovation at this time also took compact scissor lift design to new heights, with the launch of a micro range of UpRight scissor lift models.
