AUTON Motorized Systems - The Legend Continues

AUTON Motorized Systems has received numerous accolades for its commitment to new technology and innovative features.

Company Concept and Background

AUTON Motorized Systems, the legendary manufacturer of motorized lifts and concealment systems has been the preeminent manufacturer in the industry since 1955 and can build custom systems for designers, architects, builders, and fine furniture makers.

Over the years, many copycat manufacturers have appeared but none have the commitment to quality and innovation that has made AUTON Motorized Systems the world's leader in motorized systems. Virgil Walker, President of AUTON Motorized Systems invented the industry and has been providing the international design community with leading -edge systems for nearly 50 years. While Mr. Walker continues to expand AUTON'S product line, the future of motorized design is always in sight as new products are continually being researched, tested, and developed.

AUTON Motorized Systems uses only welded steel construction in all of its products. Unlike some other manufacturers, sheet metal products are never used. It's no wonder that AUTON products carry a four -year warranty, the longest in the industry.

AUTON Motorized Systems has received numerous accolades for its commitment to new technology and innovative features. In 2002, AUTON was the recipient of the Best Product of the Year Award by Electronic House Magazine at CEDIA 2002, for its industry -first Automatic Shut Off Technology.
