Cascos Lifts - Celebrating 50 Years!!

Cascos Lifts - Celebrating 50 Years!!

How often do you hear people say "They don't make them like they used to"??

Well in our industry we hear it all the time, especially about lifts and, in general, they'd be right too!

However, Cascos actually do make lifts like they used to, because Cascos still use the same design principle and specification that was employed when they made their first 2 post lift back in the 60's.

This year, the company celebrates their 50th anniversary, so we thought we'd give you a brief history and highlight some of the landmarks along the way. This timeline should be all the confidence and security you need to confirm Cascos is the right choice when buying (or selling) a lift :)

1968 – The first 1500m2 of office and production facilities were established to develop the first series of 2 post lifts and tyre changers, which were predominantly destined for the German market.
