In need of a vehicle lift repair or replacement?

If so, then Herpel's Auto and Truck Lifts of Germansville is ready, willing, and able to service those and other demands.

Located at 5687 Handwerk Road, the company has been chosen as Business of the Month by the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce.

It provides automotive and truck service lifts, as well as sales, service, and installation. Their products include the Rotary Lift and Revolution Lift, and they are an authorized distributor and installer. They also are a distributor for Garage Products Inc., which specializes in shop exhaust system products.

Owners Will and Pam Saks purchased the business in 2005. The business was originally started by Martin and Sally Herpel in 1974.

Will Saks said the business has three full-time employees who service all of Eastern PA and Western NJ.

"We service your various local automotive repair shops and car dealerships by repairing, maintaining or replacing their vehicle lifts," Saks said. "With the growth of our business, we would like to hire one to three new employees, and turn our part-time positions into full-time ones."

Saks said the business continues to grow.

"We can now work with the shop owner, or their architect, to properly design the lift layout of any type of shop, including putting final design into AutoCAD file form," he said. "This is very helpful for budgeting, zoning/permits, etc., and can potentially increase profits and reduce costs for the customer."

The business can be reached by phone at (610) 767-9262, fax (610) 760-8049, or
