Thomson Lifting Columns
Thomson Lifting Columns are designed with the same care and expertise as Thomson's industry-leading series of linear actuators. During the development process, our focus was on space saving, modern design, high performance, and safe operation. Along with our maintenance free life, easy installation, and light weight envelope, these lifting columns are a first choice for domestic, medical, and work place applications.
