The Edison Awards, celebrating its 25th year announced its finalists for the internationally renowned 2012 Edison Best New Product Awards has announced Lift’n Buddy as a finalist in the Industrial Design Tools category.  Since 1987, The Edison Awards have recognized ideas at the forefront of new products, services, marketing, design and innovation.  Winning an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business.

“I am extremely pleased to be a finalist for the 2012 Edison Awards in the category of Industrial Design,” said Aaron Lamb, president of Ergologistics. “This honor solidifies Lift’n Buddy’s place in the market. Being in the field of this year’s finalists speaks well to the level of innovation we strive for.”

Lift’n Buddy is the revolutionary mobile lifting device that combines the best of a standard two-wheeler’s durability and functionality, with automatic lifting and lowering capabilities. The Lift’n Buddy has been designed with proper ergonomics and safety in mind for any person and any moving and lifting job. These mobile lifting devices, fabricated of durable, lightweight, extruded aluminum, help companies avoid the exposure of employee injury, litigation, and workers’ compensation claims.  The Lift’n Buddy has created waves already by being nominated at the Supply Chain Distinction Awards last December and an Edison Award for Industrial Design Tools, which honors new innovations on the market.

Lift’n Buddy is committed to reducing injuries from repetitive lifting, lowering, and moving. The cost of back injuries alone costs millions of dollars each year. According to Lamb, “Lift’n Buddy automates those tasks, significantly reducing the potential for injuries and costly downtime.”  Lift’n Buddy is ergonomically safe and environmentally friendly since the electric hand trucks require no oil, gas, hydraulic fluid, or maintenance of any kind. Completely electric and geared for life, even the battery is 100 % recyclable.

Ergologistics manufactures innovative products for the health and welfare of material handling workers. Lift’n Buddy is designed and distributed by Ergologistics, LLC; manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, the company is a proud member of MHIA (Material Handling Industry of America), National Safety Council, and MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association).
