As gold sponsors, Haulotte were proud to be part of the 50 year celebration for the hire industry and the largest HIRE event to date.

“It was also a great opportunity to catch up with our valued customers and partners who have been an integral component to our ongoing growth. Big congratulations to United Forklift and Access Solutions our distribution partner who won the rental company of the year award this year,” said Keith Clarke, General Manager of Haulotte Australia.

Also on exhibition on the Haulotte stand was the Star 6 Crawler, a prototype machine that is currently in development globally. You can provide feedback about the suitability and interest of the Star 6 Crawler via this survey.

“This shows the significance and important for the Australian market to our global business, we were able to bring a machine still in development to Australia to gauge the interest you have for it,” added Mr Clarke.
