The founders of American Scissor Lift were partial owners of another high reach company dating back to the mid-seventies. After selling their interest in that company and enjoying a brief sabbatical, the founders, in Feb., 1995, opened their doors as Sacramento Scissor Lift (a company of just three people) in West Sacramento, California.

Their business model—to provide the highest level of customer service and to excel at short-term rentals—was immediately successful. After receiving numerous requests from customers, the company began their measured growth: An additional location was opened in the Bay Area in 1996, and the company changed its name to American Scissor Lift. In 2004, a location opened in Stockton, in 2009 El Cajon, and most recently, the Los Angeles Area.
