Robert Hoppe Sr. – Founder


Founded in 1973 Perkins Manufacturing Company began producing cart lifters/tippers for regional waste hauling companies in the 1980’s. The Perkins Tuckaway® brand, initially developed in 1984, was the first cart lifter to utilize the sweeping arc motion to “grab” the cart. With pioneering features such as rotary actuators, breakaway faceplates, high ground clearances and the patented sweeping motion the Perkins Tuckaway® lifters quickly became the leading brand for cart lifters/tippers.



The manufacturing and administrative facility is in Romeoville, Illinois.
