Totalkare history dates back to 1953 when Walter Somers Materials Handling established a manufacturing assembly centre in Halesowen, offering fabrication services to industry.

It was some years later, however, when Totalkare introduced its first mobile column lift in the UK, that the company embarked on a journey which sees us celebrate 40 years as the UK market leader for mobile column lifts in 2020.

Over the past forty years numerous models of mobile column lift and fixed lifts have been introduced, culminating in the introduction of non-lifting products (online training, brake tester and headlamp tester) for the first time in 2019.

While the name may have changed along the way, the same high-quality products and aftersales service remains. The timeline below charts Totalkare history from our beginnings in the 1950s.
