Due to a substantial decline in demand, Z-lyften ProduKion - ZEPRO is forced to give notice to 70 employees. Before the notice, the company employed 280 staff. Z-lyften manufactures tail lifts and taillift products for trucks and semi trailers, under the brand name ZEPRO-lifts. Tail lifts are permanently placed to the back of a truck to facilitate the handling of goods from ground level, or a loading dock, to the level of the vehicle. All ZEPRO-lifts are manufactured at the factory in Bispsgården, nine miles northwest of Sundsvall.
