What we do
UP Equip is specialized in challenging access solutions. We prepare and distribute Easy Lift atrium compact lifts series (tracked & wheeled) in Canada, United States, Mexico and all South America to provide customers a safe and reliable access for hard-to-reach working areas. We strive to be an important part of the daily success and productivity of all our customers. By providing live technical and operational support, UP Equip is highly sensitive to its customer’s challenges and extremely proactive during the pre-delivery inspection and initial preparation of units for North and South American markets.
Our team is composed of highly qualified technicians who’s passion for learning never come to an end. The knowledge and experience we have gathered over time is invaluable. Not only do we understand perfectly how atrium compact tracked spider lifts are built, we know how to help and explain when operational and technical issues arise.
All our actions are ruled by fundamental principles;
- Integrity: We never sacrifice integrity for profit. We are transparent in all our business dealings.
- Respect: We provide a safe and healthy environment for our team members. We treat all people with dignity and respect. We value the differences in people’s thinking, backgrounds and are committed to team member’s development. But far more important: We always tell the truth, whether you like it or not.
- Improvement: We continuously search for new and better ways of doing things, eliminating waste and continually improving. We challenge the status quo everyday.
- Leadership: We work to serve the needs of our customers, investors and team members. We nurture a culture of “chain of support” versus “chain of command.” We ask what we can do to help.
- Courage: We have the personal and professional courage to do the right things and take risks that may cause us to win, as well as to fail periodically. We make decisions and take actions. Failure is success when we learn from it.
Since the beginning, we established a condition that need to prevail for all our actions: “Will I be able to peacefully sleep tonight?” This question have always been, and will always be answered: “Yes, absolutely!” Our customers put their lives in our hands, and that level of trust is sacred. Our actions and decisions are always, and will always be based on this complete confidence that nothing is left to hazard, or luck. All units are inspected as if it was the first time we see them, no compromise and no rush. We much prefer spend too much time than just enough. People are climbing, sometimes as high as 135 feet. That doesn’t leave any room for uncertainty.
It is with that condition in mind that we first met all atrium compact tracked spider lifts manufacturers. We were looking for a company committed to customer satisfaction as well as product quality through strong partnerships with their suppliers and distributors. Another important factor was the focus they put on continuous improvement of products and services. We were pleased with Easy Lift unit’s simplicity, yet un-cheatable safety. All units meet the strict safety regulation of ANSI (USA), CE (Europe) and CSA (Canada). The final stability tests are all made accordingly to CSA Standards, the world’s most severe standard of safety and compliance with what we like to call the ‘infamous drop-test’’. Even if your unit will be use outside of Canada, it will be ‘drop-test’ certified.
Internally, UP Equip team constantly improve and refine the quality of its products, services and processes. Management team consistently focus on feedback from customers, employees, suppliers and business partners. We believe listening is one of our greatest quality.
