ETC is proud to be a leading manufacturer of scoreboard hoists in North America. We build custom machinery to fit your specifications, incorporating custom control, and integrating with third-party products.
From supporting enormous stadium video walls to operating the latest in animated multi-screen scoreboards to displaying stock cars at Daytona Motor Speedway, ETC brings impressive impact to sporting events and venues.
Our engineers pride themselves on solving specialized project engineering challenges from concept to fully functional turn-key systems. Depending on capacity, pick centers, and available mounting space, Vortek VS-2020 SB, H-Frame or OMNI hoists are designed and manufactured to accommodate center-hung scoreboard displays of every capacity, from high school gyms to professional arenas.
The Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, has the largest hoist we’ve installed to date boasting a 150,000 lb (68,038 kg) lifting capacity. When the United Center wanted to implement a state-of-the-art multi-layer scoreboard and video wall system, ETC took their specifications off the paper and created a system that maximized their fans’ experience. And when Toyota Racing/the Daytona Motor Speedway wanted to safely display their stock cars overhead, we provided just the solution they were looking for.
Every heavy-duty steel-constructed frame is designed and manufactured considering location, installation, operator safety, and application.
When the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre in Dallas, Texas had the vision of hanging and shifting seating towers, ETC’s Vortek engineers accepted the challenge. Now theatergoers enjoy performances in one of the most innovative facilities ever built using hoists capable of moving horizontally and vertically with a lifting capacity of 60,000 pounds (27,215 kg).
But not every custom application requires a giant solution. For example, ETC hoists provide the Lloyd Center the ability to transform their environment without needing to drive lifts all over their nice floors.
