Dur-A-Lift Ribbon Cutting Wednesday

George, Iowa — A George manufacturing facility is expanding.
Dur-A-Lift, Inc. will be holding a ribbon cutting for its newly completed factory and corporate office expansion. It will be at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, April 22nd at Dur-A-Lift’s new facility located at 2002 Kingbird Avenue, a mile northeast of George.

Along with a number of area leaders and community members, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds will be at the ribbon cutting. Governor Branstad will be speaking. Company officials say the event celebrates the latest milestone in the ongoing growth and expansion of Lyon County’s largest manufacturer, and non-gaming based employer.

Diversified Technologies Incorporated (or DTI) is made up of three divisions. Dur-A-Lift, Inc. manufactures truck and van mounted aerial lifts for electrical, telecom, sign and rental industries. Sudenga Industries, Inc. is a leading agricultural equipment manufacturer and Ranger All-Season Corporation supplies mobility scooters to the healthcare and rental industries.

Company officials say Dur-A-Lift’s building project adds 26,000 square feet to DTI’s existing 200,000+ square foot facility. DTI expects to add jobs to its 260+ person workforce, and double its Dur-A-Lift production capacity with this latest expansion in Lyon County.

Through its Sudenga division, DTI traces its roots back over 125 years in George, to its founding in 1888 by blacksmith Folkert Sudenga.
