Behind every success, there’s always a story, and this is ours.
WALTCO originated in Gardena, California in 1954 as a division of WALTCO Engineering. In
the early days, we focused exclusively on manufacturing parts for the aerospace industry.
But one day, a major customer (the US defense) asked us to build a liftgate. Naturally, it had
to live up to the high-quality standards and precision engineering of the aerospace industry.
We made the lift gate, and then another and another…
By the mid-1980s we had become one of the largest manufacturers of hydraulic liftgates in
the United States, and we have retained that position ever since. Today, WALTCO offers a
wide variety of models, with capacities from 1,250 to 6,600 lbs.
