Why Jonathan's Son?
II Samuel 9 tells us the story about King David's desire to honor his best friend, Jonathan by honoring one of his descendants.
Mephibosheth was Jonathan's Son, and he was crippled in both feet. David declared he would always be welcome at the King's table, and he restored the lands of King Saul to this son of Jonathan.
As David sought to bring honor to this man, so we also seek to bring honor and respect to our clients by providing quality service and craftsmanship.
Now as to our name change....
Why Lift and Accessibility Solutions?
As much as we have loved the story of Mephibosheth (Jonathan's Son) and how it has guided how we treat our clients, we now realize that we would be able to help more people with a name that reflects more of what we actually do - so as of June 2012 we have begun the process of changing our name. This of course will not happen overnight. A new logo, new look, new website are all in process. Meanwhile, this webpage will continue to let people know what we can do for them. Our tag line is: We lift you UP! And that is what we strive to do, whether it be physically in some type of lift, or even emotionally helping you to smile with the great service our great team provides.
