The first VERSALIFT was built in 1965 by Bill Blewett and Russel Howard in Clifton, Texas.
Measuring only 24 feet, the unit was used to allow telephone linemen to perform tasks at
varying heights in a safe and dependable manner.
In 1968, Charles B. Turner, and Russel Howard moved to Waco, Texas and formed TIME Manufacturing Company.
The product line of TIME Manufacturing has expanded to include over 30 Versalift model aerial lifts and digger derricks, as well as CONDOR truck-mounted aerial work platforms.
