From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Partek Ski Lifts was a chairlift manufacturer based in Pine Island, New York. It was founded in 1996 as the successor to Borvig, who went out of business in 1993. The company was founded by Hagen Schulz, the son of Borvig's President Gary Schulz. The company was also the official parts distributor for Borvig lifts.

In 2004 Partek had announced that it was developing a detachable chairlift system, however, development was ceased when the company was purchased.

In 2005, the company was purchased by Doppelmayr CTEC. Also included in the purchase were Partek's rights to Borvig lifts. After the purchase, Partek president Hagen Schulz became a sales consultant at Doppelmayr CTEC, and started a new company, Ski Lift Parts Inc.

In its 9 years as a lift manufacturer, Partek installed 24 lifts in North America.

Other companies

There is also a completely unrelated (and currently operating) company called Partek that sells statistical software used by scientific researchers for Data mining and pattern recognition [1]. Their software has found a particular niche in the analysis of DNA microarray data in the field of Genomics[2], because it can perform Multidimensional analysis of fairly large data sets on an ordinary desktop computer. A number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies use Partek software [3].
