Custom Lifting Columns

Lifting columns customization options

Thomson offers a broad range of standard lifting columns to suit many needs. We realize, though, that unique application parameters often dictate equally unique configurations and modifications. Our lifting columns are designed with this in mind as many of our products can be readily customized to suit specific requirements.

Thomson lifting columns are built on modules that can be mixed and matched in final assembly. These operations are configured to provide flexible assembly to accommodate custom orders, quickly and cost effectively.

Our experienced engineers can assist you to ensure your part selection is right the first time, while our support staff oversees proper initial application and comprehensive support once installed.
