Haulotte North America opened the doors of its new AWP corporate headquarters in Virginia Beach, Va. The new 84,000-square-foot facility, with an outdoor yard of more than one acre, will be the central hub for its aerial work platform corporate offices, product and parts distribution, as well as in-house customer care activities.
“As our market share continues to grow in North America, this new facility will provide full service to our customers in the United States and Canada,” said Claude Fuger, North American zone manager. “This investment is part of our long-range strategic plan and a further commitment to the North American marketplace.”
Aerial work platform manufacturing will continue to take place at Haulotte’s Archbold, Ohio, facility, along with operations and manufacturing of Bil-Jax Scaffolding and Event products, which is a Haulotte subsidiary.
“With strong projected growth, Virginia Beach was a clear choice for the new facility,” said Buddy Dieter, vice president of North America sales for Haulotte. “Our staff will provide a wealth of knowledge, experience and outstanding customer service.”
The new headquarters will provide services such as sales and service training, focused on quality hands-on and classroom education; a customer service and technical call center; parts warehousing and after-sales parts fulfillment; Haulotte Financial Services, offering customized funding solutions; and inbound and outbound machine shipments.
