Wed July 29, 2009 - West Edition

Trico Lift, a full-service aerial work platform company, is now open for business in San Antonio, Texas. This new location is the second Trico Lift branch available in Texas. The company’s Houston fleet center opened last year.

General Manager Billy Abshire heads Trico Lift’s San Antonio and Houston teams and Danny Lewis of Waelder, Texas, has been named Trico lift service manager in San Antonio.

“San Antonio is a very exciting opening for us,” Trico Lift President Ken Pustizzi said. “It’s a great city and we’re happy to be here to support local business and industry as well as the development and activities happening throughout the area.”

Trico Lift is a 57 year-old organization offering a complete line of lift equipment including scissor lifts, boom lifts and forklifts for rent or sale. Equipment maintenance and inspection services also are available through the company’s San Antonio location. In addition to serving the construction and facilities maintenance industries, its client base includes several U.S. based convention centers; major sports franchises, the petrochemical industry, and several major shipbuilding, energy and aerospace organizations.

The company is known in the aerial work platform industry for its award-winning safety program with the most recent acknowledgement being a Contractor Merit Award presented in May to Trico Lift by the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association

“Trico Lift’s unparalleled and award winning safety program attests to the fact that we consider our responsibility for the well-being of others a very serious part of our business,” Pustizzi added, “and this is just one of the reasons we have earned a ranking among the nation’s top lift providers.”
