Utah Governor's Office of Economic Opportunity

The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah) is pleased to announce that Leitner-Poma of America (LPOA) and its affiliates plan to expand operations in Utah, bringing up to 118 high-paying jobs to the state in the next 10 years. LPOA and affiliates plan to develop a campus that will house several of its brands to provide Utah clients with manufacturing, service, parts, and sales/administration functions in their own backyard.

We’re excited Leitner-Poma has decided to come grow with us in Utah,” said Dan Hemmert, the Office of Economic Opportunity’s executive director. “Utah’s 15 world-class ski resorts make it an ideal location for Leitner-Poma’s corporate expansion.

LPOA and affiliates offer a complete line of cable transport systems, including surface lifts, chairlifts, gondolas, MiniMetro urban transport, trams, inclined elevators, and industrial trams. LPOA has installed aerial and surface systems worldwide and has established its position as a market leader.

The company’s worldwide network, which is part of High Technology Industries (HTI) Group, has installed more than 10,000 transportation systems in 61 countries. HTI is an umbrella organization that unites the additional brands of LEITNER ropeways and POMA (rope-hauled transportation systems), PRINOTH (snow groomers and tracked utility vehicles), DEMACLENKO (snowmaking systems), LEITWIND (wind turbines),  AGUDIO (Material ropeways) and SKYTRAC (aerial ropeway manufacturing). Collectively, HTI safely transports eight million passengers on its cable transport systems every hour. The new Utah campus would house several HTI brands, providing Utah customers with a wide range of services.
