LIFTWAY – Leaders in Forklifts & Material Handling


“Although I’ve worked very hard at building the company, our people, and our loyal customers have helped to bring it to where it is today.”  — Barrie Schram, President


What started as a small shop in 1968 with just two employees performing automotive, motorcycle, forklifts and small engine repairs,   Liftway is now one of Ontario’s largest material handling companies in Ontario Service Area.  The company has strengthened their sales, rentals, and service by offering a wide selection of material handling products, top-notch customer parts and service, industry-standard safety training programs and social advocacy to support various charities, community events, organizations and sports teams.



Our mission is to provide an unparalleled level of service and products which will consistently meet or exceed our customer’s requirements and to ensure that our employees and shareholders are committed to the highest level of honesty for all our business and public relations.
