In 1908, Henry Trester started an electric motor repair business in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. With only a few employees and a great vision, Henry succeeded in making a name in an industry that served the needs of small and large businesses much like his in a time of great challenge. While still in high school in 1937, Henry’s son Richard began working for him. After serving overseas, Dick, as friends knew him, returned to work full-time for Henry, who retired in 1951. Richard's sons eventually stepped in and the business became a third generation entity of which we have been very proud.
Much has happened since these early days and today the focus of our business has been changed to hoist sales and service. Our location since 1995 has been Brookfield, Wisconsin, and we have become one of the leading distributors of overhead lifting equipment in the Midwest. We believe that our dedication to customer service, extensive inventory and product knowledge has been responsible for our rapid growth and success. This same commitment that has served us so well will continue through the next millennium. We are enthusiastic and we enjoy what we do. It is our belief that your experience with us will leave you with the same feeling!
