Mickey gets a ‘lift’ from a unique business

Home » The Mickey Spirit » Mickey gets a ‘lift’ from a unique business

A Mickey body being lifted 20 feet in the air on a ?scissor lift? manufactured by Tesco Equipment LLC, a leading supplier of aviation and industrial lift systems. Airports use the lifts and bodies to stock airplanes for in-flight food service.

You might say Mickey Truck Bodies is ?getting a rise? from its newest business partner – Tesco Equipment LLC, a leading supplier of aviation and industrial lift systems around the world. The Coral Springs, FL-based company?s scissor lifts are used in a variety aircraft, ranging from regional jets to the Airbus A380, to support catering, cabin service, ambulatory and other applications.

?Tesco?s core capability is the design and manufacture of lift systems for the aviation industry,? says Todd Holm, Mickey?s Southeast Sales Manager. ?They also assemble the bodies for their lifts, but that?s not their core business.?

The first Tesco/Mickey interaction came when Mickey provided Tesco with several of its popular ProVend full-service vending units to cater corporate jets. Following the successful trial, Tesco executives visited the Mickey manufacturing campus in High Point, NC for a plant tour, and that ?opened the doors for other opportunities,? according to Todd. ?Mickey engineered a unique body solution for Tesco for aviation catering and servicing demands. It was a win/win for both companies: it opened up additional space for Tesco to manufacturer its scissor lift systems, and allows the company to focus on its core capabilities. For Mickey, it?s a great opportunity to expand into a new and unique field with our engineered solutions.?
