CASTLETON, N.Y. — Rotary Lift has named automotive service equipment distributor Total Tool its heavy-duty distributor for most of upstate New York and all of Vermont.
Total Tool, which serves vehicle repair shops in the Northeastern U.S., now has exclusive distribution rights for Rotary Lift’s line of in-ground and above-ground heavy-duty vehicle lifts in a geographic area that spans from New York state’s Orange County to the south, Canada to the north, Utica to the west, and all of Vermont.
The agreement will shorten the purchasing process for municipalities, schools and other public agencies, as Rotary Lift’s heavy-duty lifting products recently became available through the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA). The purchasing cooperative allows government agencies to buy competitively priced equipment using a purchase order instead of having to individually bid out purchases.
“Our customers will now be able to streamline their buying process through Total Tool with the addition of Rotary Lift’s NJPA-approved products,” said Kathy Dederick, owner of Total Tool.
Total Tool, a woman-owned family business that has operated since 1982, sells automotive repair equipment, vehicle lifts, compressors, wheel-service equipment, alignment equipment, waste oil burners, lubrication systems, exhaust systems and other equipment for automotive repair shops.
