HIRE19 recap

Wow, what an event! Haulotte are officially celebrating picking up a double award at the Hire Industry Excellence Awards 2019 winning Supplier of the Year - Access and Best Stand - Sponsor! It was the perfect finale to our week-long party celebrating 20 years in Australia!


On the stand we introduced visitors to our latest boom the HA20LE PRO, an all-terrain, fully electric machine which was nominated for Best new product. The Star 6 Crawler also garnered a lot of attention following its initial preview last year. Available for purchase in 2019 the all-terrain vertical mast with non-marking tyres will make a valued addition to anyone’s rental fleet.


In the evening we celebrated 20 years in Australia with our customers at Pure South Kitchen. Our global CEO Alexandre Saubot shared some thoughts about Australia and our unique way of never giving up, while Bernie Kiekebosch, the founding manager for the business in Australia describe the journey for Haulotte from 1999 humble beginnings to its successes of today.

The week was capped off at the HIRE19 Gala Dinner when Haulotte were awarded two awards in front of room full of customers and peers. Keith Clarke describes the pride in winning the awards.

“It was such an honour to win Access Supplier of the Year. We have been working towards this award for several years as we continue to focus, not just on new equipment sales, but our service delivery and spare part availability. We pride ourselves on being flexible enough to work with our customer to adapt, machine options, delivery requirements and any other changes that may be required, while still being a reliable global supplier with a support network that spreads around the world.

Also winning best stand on the night was the best possible celebration we could have for our 20th year in Australia. We look forward to the next 20 years!” said Mr Clarke.
