As a world leader in material handling equipment for drum and barrel handling applications, Liftomatic Material Handling Inc. provides safe, scalable, efficient, and ergonomic solutions for chemical and petroleum producers, blenders, and distribution enterprises. We furnish equipment that covers the transportation and handling of drums containing abrasive and hazardous materials during manufacturing, dispensing, packaging, and storage. Our performance-oriented solutions incorporate a complete line of portable devices, forklift mounted drum handlers, and hoist/crane attachments for handling one to eight drums and barrels at a time.

We offer both production models and custom manufactured equipment with built-in safety features for use in Class 1, Division 1 hazardous locations.

We set up live product demonstrations right inside your plant, which allow you to see first-hand how our products solve all of your drum handling problems.
