Haulotte Aerial Work Platforms
In the year 2005, the corporation Pinguely-Haulotte was renamed Haulotte Group. This change in name brought the end of the Pinguely name after 124 years! The Haulotte Group is known for manufacturing telescopic work platforms, articulated work platforms, scissor lifts, trailer mounted work platforms and vertical mast-work platforms.
On the 24th of July, the year 2008 the Haulotte Group obtained Bil-Jax, who was the US' largest scaffold manufacturer. At present, Haulotte Group has one plant in Spain, three plants in France, one factory in Romania, near the City of Pitesti. There is a new factory which opened during the winter of the year 2008. This factory is 1 km away from the existing factory near Pitesti in Arges County. The plant is referred to as Arges II. There are also two factories in the United States, the former Bill-Jax.
The company was formed in the year 1881 within Lyon, France by Alexandre Pinguely. The company first constructed steam engines. The business evolved into making machinery eventually. During the year 1892, they provided a train to the Chemin de Fer de St Victor a Thizy.
The company supplied 7 trains to the Voiron-Saint-Beron railway. Pinguely was not considered a main steam engine manufacturer when it comes to numbers produced. The company supplied a steam train to the Chemin de Fer du Haut-Rhone in the year 1930 and by the year 1932, Pinguely started making steam shovels. Production of steam locomotives was stopped and the company began focusing instead on mobile cranes and making earthmoving machinery instead.
During the year 1924, Haulotte was formed in L'Horme by Arthur Haulotte. The company was known as Ateliers de Construction A. Haulotte. This business specialized in the production of derricks, aerial platforms and mobile cranes.
It was decided that the actual manufacturing was to be sub-contracted to Pinguely-Haulotte. They were to be responsible for the engineering and marketing, research, design and development. All products were abandoned by Saubot so that the business can concentrate on self-propelled aerial work platforms.
