About Us

Hello, and welcome from Rick Peterson, founder of PowerLift Hydraulic Door

My wife Patti and I have built PowerLift’s sterling reputation through unwavering commitment to innovation, quality and customer service.

I started a welding shop in Lake Benton, Minnesota in 1988 and introduced North America’s first production hydraulic door line in 1992.

Our PowerLift design has become the gold standard for aviation, agriculture, commercial and architectural doors. PowerLift door inquiries began coming in from all over North America, and we built a much larger manufacturing facility.

We realized that it isn’t possible to offer local installation, service and support across a continent from one central manufacturing facility. This realization initiated a new expansion phase.

We found other steel fabricators who share our customer-centered quality and service ideals. Instead of only one production point, PowerLift now has 43 manufacturing and service centers across North America.

This business model provides single source accountability from your local PowerLift location. You will appreciate this combination of professional design, sales, manufacturing, delivery and installation for your new or retrofit PowerLift project.

Sincerely,
Rick and Patti Peterson
