How do you see the demand scenario of Access Equipment in India and how well is Haulotte positioned to serve the market?
The demand for Access Equipment in India has been steadily growing across various sectors like Infrastructure, Construction, Power, Manufacturing, Hotels, Malls, and Facility Management etc. It is extremely encouraging to see the new government's strong commitment of massive investment in the transport infrastructure vis rail, metro road & airport and also in 100 smart cities project. We really hope that the execution of what has been planned commences soon. With such mega projects on the anvil, the demand for Access Equipment will definitely see a sharp increase.

Though over the last few years, the economic scenario has been tough and the market is yet to recover, at Haulotte we continue to be buoyant and confident on the promise and potential that India has. It is indeed a matter of pride for us that Haulotte today is the leading Access Equipment brand in India. Year to year we have been consolidating our market leadership position in the country. In the recent past, we have bagged many prestigious projects like the 21 Nos. Haulotte machines supplied to the Mumbai International Airport Ltd. for the new Terminal 2. Today, Haulotte Equipment is working in a wide gamut of sectors across the country. This has been possible because of the trust and confidence put on Haulotte as a brand by our customers. India is one of the fastest growing economies and we see a very bright future of the Access Equipment industry in the years to come.

What is the product range you have in Access Equipment segment for different application areas?
Haulotte Group is one of the leading manufacturers of full range of Access Equipment in the world. The use of access platforms is multiferous. As such, these equipment are used across all sectors where there is a need to work at height productively, and most importantly, safely. Our product portfolio include:

Haulotte Aerial Work Platform

Aerial Work Platforms - 7 products ranging over 60 models:
  • Articulating booms, from 12 to 41m working height, diesel-or electric- powered.
  • Scissors lift, from 6 to 18m working height, equipped with Rough Terrain diesel for outside applications or silent electric for interior use and their platform capacity ranges from 230 to 1000kg
  • Telescopic booms, from 14 to 43m working height
  • Vertical masts, from 6 to 10m, they can be used both outdoor and indoor
  • Push around, from 7 to 14m working height. This light compact machine is designed for fragile floor surfaces

Its general ergonomics improve visibility and allow easy maintenance. There are 6 models:

What are the latest additions in your product basket?
Haulotte has recently introduced its new articulated rough terrain boom lift HA 16 RTJ (16 meters), Optimum 8 electric scissor lift, Quick up 14DC Push Around Machine and Star 10 Vertical Mast in India.

Our machine HA 16 RTJ is simple yet state of the art, robust, reliable delivering optimum performance characterized by high uptime. To ensure better safety, one of the notable features of the machine is that it is equipped with the Activ Shield Bar (which can be fitted optionally on our Booms) to prevent any harm to the personnel in an entrapment situation, when the equipment is working at greater heights.

What are the advanced technological trends evolving in the access equipment segment? Are the customers ready to pay for the technology in India?
At Haulotte, we manufacture state of the art equipment which are evolved as per need of our customers. We lay a lot of emphasis on listening the voice of our customers and meet their requirements.

Our objective is to manufacture machines with the best available technology with a view of giving maximum safety through optimized performance.

One of the recent technological advancements, we have introduced in our diesel boomlifts, is the Entrapment Prevention System, ACTIV' Shield© Bar. This ensures safety of the worker in an entrapment situation. The system once activated allows on reverse and down function of the machine thus preventing further danger to the worker. The system unlike some of our competitors' offerings can be reset from the platform itself, thus saving both time and money.

Certainly customers in India are becoming aware of such technological advancement and even at a cost they are ready to add-on such features in their equipment.

How has the company lined up its programme for expansion to strengthen its position in the Access Equipment market?
Haulotte is one of the biggest manufacturers of Access Equipment in the world. The success is primarily due to the emphasis on safety, and secondly, the necessity of finding a better productivity ratio. Since 1985, Haulotte Group has been doing its best to manufacture, sell, and provide assistance to customers, which mean providing efficient machines to meet customer's needs. The success is only driven by customers!

In line with the same policy, Haulotte Group has its fully owned subsidiary in India, Haulotte India Private Limited based out of Mumbai providing Sales, Service, Spare Parts and Training Support to our esteemed customers in India.

How do you see the demand of your products from the rental industry?
The rental sector worldwide forms the backbone of the AWP industry. In developed countries, the demand for new machine is driven by rental sector. India being still an evolving market, the rental segment still concentrates on the procurement of used & cheap machines. The demand for new machines in India shall certainly grow once the market matures. We at Haulotte are already present in the Indian rental segment and our commitment towards our customers shall stand unabated always!
