June 7, 2007 — After 15 years of renting business space in the Buffalo area, this family business has decided to put down roots. JIT Toyota-Lift recently purchased the building at 999 Harlem Road in West Seneca. To celebrate this important occasion, they held a Grand Opening Celebration and offered facility tours on Wednesday, June 27th. The day started with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The company invited its key vendors and clients to tour the new building between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM. The company’s owners, Scott & Julie Sadowski, Dan & Joyce Schwob and founding owners Bud & Mary Short were on site to welcome guests. Also in attendance were representatives from forklift maker Toyota Material Handling, aerial lift equipment maker JLG and industrial battery and charger maker Enersys.
Tours included a presentation of the company’s history and the capabilities of the firm. Visitors had an opportunity to interact with many of the company’s staff and with several supplier representatives.
“After 15 years of renting space in the Buffalo area, we are excited to be investing in a building of our own and to becoming a more permanent part of this community”, reports Joyce Schwob, President and General Manager of the company. “This is a real milestone for us and we wanted to share our success with those who have made it possible.”
