October 2, 2018 – Waco, Texas – Time Manufacturing/Versalift announced today that it has acquired Aspen Aerials in a deal that will create significant value by expanding its set of high quality product offerings, and at the same time, leveraging its own growing global market access. Now known as ‘Aspen Aerials, a Time Manufacturing Company,’ the Duluth, MN-based manufacturer will continue to lead the bridge inspection equipment and repair industry, in North America and beyond.

Aspen Aerials has manufactured high reaching, stable, and durable specialty equipment used to inspect the safety and integrity of bridges for more than 30 years.
