Force Behind the Lift: Josh Scroggins

Have you been car shopping lately? If you have, then you can see there is huge difference in pricing for the same year, make and models. All of the versions will get you from a to b, so what’s the difference? The options and accessories. A base model vehicle has the basics and will do the job, but a higher package makes the ride a little easier and more comfortable, the exact same can be said for Rotary Lifts. A base model SPOA-10 will lift a car day in and day out, and provide you years of great service. However, start adding things like Shockwave™, TRIO™ arms, or Spotline™ and you will soon wonder how you ever managed without them. At Rotary the guy responsible for making you aware of those parts and accessories, is Josh Scroggins.

Force Behind the Lift: Christina Lagaly

"I love it when a plan comes together." That was a character's famed tag line in a very popular television show. The premise was a very elaborate plan with many moving parts, would somehow always fall into place, and the good guys would win. The show was popular because it appealed to so many. It incorporated gun fights, high speed car chases, airplane and helicopter maneuvers, but what resonated with a certain Rotary employee was the planning aspect.

Christina Lagaly loved the show for one reason, it played to her strong suit; her meticulous nature. Christina is the Master Scheduler for Rotary and is very well suited for the job. Today we learn a little more about the person who is responsible for the delicate symphony that is the planning, production, and distribution of Rotary Lifts.
