Challenger Lifts North America Manufacturing: Pioneering Growth and Excellence

In the four years that I’ve been with Challenger Lifts, I’ve seen significant growth within the company. The facility is amazing, and the technology in the manufacturing plant is really what impresses me. We build lifts here in Louisville, and the robotic welding is my most favorite feature in the factory.


We have people in our factory. They’re still welding lifts, bending parts and cutting parts all in a factory. It’s not just a robot or robotic. It’s the people who actually care about the product that they’re forming. The product that we’re getting out of here from the plant is going to be everywhere. I actually come here and work on a lift. Where I may take my car to a shop, and then happen to see one of the lifts that I made, it does give me a sense of pride.


With safety and the environment being part of our core values, we’ve really made sure to put an emphasis on it, and also making big investments in things like electric forklifts and a hazardous waste-free paint line. We all live and work in Louisville, and we would really like to see that community stay clean and safe and sustain where we’re operating.


My favorite thing at Challenger Lifts is a supportive culture. I could reach out to all levels of the company without hesitation to get what I need to be successful every day. I think this is a really good company to work for. There’s still quite a few people that work here who have been here since the beginning. We actually have someone in our shipping department that’s helped build some of the first lifts in the company. It’s pretty neat to be a part of a company that really does care about what they’re making. Watching a company grow every year and the supportive culture here, I can’t imagine working anywhere else. I can say this is the best job that I ever had.

Challenger Lifts

Challenger Lifts has grown significantly since its inception, leveraging advanced technology and a dedicated workforce. We invest in safety and sustainability, while fostering a supportive culture for our skilled employees in Louisville, Kentucky.

We give them the tools that they need, the knowledge, the resources to be able to do their job. We’re able to provide quality products and, not only that, we’re able to give our customers the most durable and reliable products that are out there on the market.


Built on a customer-focused foundation of expert engineering and quality manufacturing, Hofmann pioneers technologies to meet our customers daily needs. We work diligently in evolving our wheel service products with breakthrough technology and user-friendly features to provide the best customer experience.


We start with putting the cabinet up on the front. We send it down the line, and assemble it per station with each individual person, until it gets down to the testing station, where we ensure it works and its good quality. Then, we pack it up and send it out for shipping. The speed and efficiency of the tire changer line is very important to us, and we want to make sure that we’re pushing out the product as efficiently and quickly as possible, with the highest quality.


We invest in our customers to gain a deeper understanding of their most important business objectives. Hofmann is here to drive our customers future success by providing them with top-of-the-line equipment for their shops. Our software focus is keeping the customer on track, and deciding what screens they do or do not need during the alignment process. This helps with throughput and increased revenue for the customer.


Developed and manufactured by a dedicated team of professionals, we will continue to set the pace for the industry, along with our distributors. Pioneering new technologies, state-of-the-art engineering and cutting-edge innovations, we’ll keep working to provide the same high-level of service that Hofmann customers have come to expect. And to ensure our customers ongoing success, we’ll keep our customer connections close. Our people and our values, as well as the Hofmann standard of engineering excellence in wheel balancers, tire changers, wheel aligners and more, has made Hofmann a trusted and respected partner of OEMs and repair professionals worldwide.
