Haulotte won two awards at the 2019 European Rental Awards held last week in Madrid. The Haulotte HA20 LE, known as the HA61 LE in the United States, was rewarded as Rental Product of the Year. Also Pierre Saubot, founder and chairman of Haulotte, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The HA61 LE also won the “Lifts” category in RER’s Innovative Product Award presented in December.
According to the ERA’s judges, “The HA20 LE is a very strong product, and as the first of Haulotte’s all-electric Pulseo generation range, it makes a strong statement on electrification and sustainability.”
Haulotte said: “The electric articulating boomlift offers silent operation, indoors and outdoors, even on the roughest terrain, all with due regard for the environment. Ultra-fast lifting speed and simultaneous movements work together to enhance productivity. The all-electric architecture makes the HA20 LE suitable for work in downtown areas and low emission zones as well as on green construction sites.”
Saubot took control of Pinguely-Haulotte in 1985. Under his leadership, Haulotte expanded internationally and developed its product offer, with a wide range of aerial work platforms and telehandlers.
“It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award,” Saubot said. “This prize is not only mine. It also belongs to all those who have worked with me over the years.”
Haulotte is headquartered in L’Horme, France, with North American headquarters in Virginia Beach, Va.
