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