Haulotte acquires ABM
ABM is based in Beynost/Miribel to the east of Lyon, it was the UpRight dealer for France for many years, but then decided to change tack and become a manufacturer, producing a range of mast type lifts under names such as Belone and Orion, including classic mast booms, fixed mast lifts with roll out deck extensions and a slewing mast type lift that falls between a mast lift and a mast boom.

No details of the transaction, which occurred earlier a few weeks ago have been released. We understand however that it is an all share purchase deal and that ABM will continue to operate in its present format, at least in the short term.
