John Falls, the president and founder of Aladdin Light Lift, announced today that the company's headquarters is moving to Huntsville.

HUNTSVILLE  -- Aladdin Light Lift, a Memphis-based company that manufactures motorized systems used to lower and raise chandeliers for cleaning and changing bulbs, is relocating to Huntsville and plans to build a 22,500-square-foot building in Chase Industrial Park.

All 15 full-time employees will move to the Huntsville area later this year, said John Falls, the company's president and founder. The company also has 50 independent sales representatives in the United States and Canada and about 1,000 distributors nationwide.

Site preparation is now being done at the 10-acre site on Shields Road next to the CF Flag building.

"The goal is to finish our building by Aug. 15," Falls said today after the company announcement at the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce.

Falls had been looking at several cities before choosing the Huntsville area, he said, citing the low crime rate, good public schools and positive business climate.

Huntsville, he said, is a "great city with positive, can-do people who know how to get things done."

Falls said his family - including his wife, Susan, and daughter, Jennifer - bought a home in Huntsville last July.

Aladdin Light Lift was founded in 1991 and a second company, Aladdin Storage Lift, was launched last year to build a motorized system to lift items into the attic and lower them to floor level.

"This is truly a great day for our community," said Charlie Kettle, the chamber's board chairman. Aladdin is "a great corporate partner" and further diversifies the local industrial base, he said.
