In 1995, Thomas GARCIA was looking for an innovative market and so he launched into the manufacture, marketing and distribution of name tags with a very powerful magnet as a fixing system that no one was selling. These products were intended for companies whose staff is receiving public and had to be identified (hotels, restaurants, car dealerships, pharmacies, etc.) – This activity stopped following Covid in early 2021.
In 2007, Thomas, an inventor at heart, was looking for a new idea. Coming across a German article highlighting the large number of work accidents related to the handling of road signs, he had the idea:
“I am going to invent a magnetic tool to avoid these accidents!”.
After many prototypes, in 2012, a successful tool came out: the LIFTPLAQ and its super powerful magnet.
The family business then developed, filed an international patent and moved to a larger workshop in Claira (66).
Thomas passed the business on to his daughter, Laurie, in 2017.
The LIFTPLAQ company is now recognized on the market nearby companies working on dry and wet underground networks (sanitation, telecommunications, gas, etc.). and accompanies its customers in the handling of manhole covers and plates.
The right gestures and postures are our daily life and we are proud to contribute to improving the working conditions of technicians on the field.
