Automotive Lift Institute Celebrates 75 Years

Posted on November 21, 2019

The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) “will continue to explore new concepts and approaches to promote the safe design, construction, installation, inspection and use of automotive lifts.”

To mark its 75th anniversary, the organization adopted a resolution during its annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nev., on Nov. 3.

“For 75 years, responsible lift manufacturers have focused on protecting technicians and others who use their equipment every day,” says R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president.

“We’re proud of ALI’s legacy of safety and commitment to the industry, and we look forward to highlighting our heritage in the year ahead.”

ALI officials also have approved a marketing plan to promote the group’s 75th anniversary throughout 2020. This will include the introduction of a special anniversary logo.
