After 35 years of Service in many capacities at Liftway, it is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Bob Birkett.

Bob started his career in the Liftway Service Dept. as a Technician, and then was promoted to Service Manager then moved over to the Sales side of the business as a Liftway Account Manager.
