29 Sep The Jacksonville Business Journal recognizes Lift Power as one of the best places to work
We are proud to announce that the Jacksonville Business Journal has recognized Lift Power as a 2022 First Coast Best Places to Work.

This is Lift Power’s first time in 50 years being honored by the Jacksonville Business Journal as a First Coast Best Places to Work for its positive industry-leading culture.
“On behalf of myself and our entire leadership team, we would like to express our appreciation for voting Lift Power as one of the best places to work. We have built an amazing diverse and inclusive family that has bonded together and has enjoyed so much success. I could not be prouder of this team with how we have come together in challenging times and have worked through so much change over the past years. Our passionate team does the right thing every day, they respect each other and at the same time we like to have fun. We do all of this while ensuring safety first for ourselves and our customers. I am honored and privileged to lead this group of talented, hardworking, and caring individuals.”
-Don Hune, President
Establishing a presence in the material handling industry in 1971 as a small forklift dealership, Lift Power faced many challenges. When our headquarters opened in Jacksonville, Florida, owners LD Mohrman JR & LD Mohrman SR struggled financially to keep the business afloat. After many hardships, Lift Power began to flourish and opened three more locations throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. When Don Hune acquired the company in 2005, becoming President of Lift Power inc, he fostered the idea of growing into a turn-key warehouse solutions provider.
Today, Lift Power is extremely grateful to be one of the southeast’s largest full-service material handling providers. With more than 150 employees, Lift Power is extremely thankful for every employee and recognizes each person’s dedication, hard work, and passion. Without you, Lift Power would not have the success it does today, and we are honored to hear our employees feel just as positive as we think of them.
