The coronavirus outbreak strongly impacted the construction sector. Since last month, Haulotte’s European subsidiaries have been gradually reopening with one common goal: to support their customers in the recovery of their activity.
With the gradual resumption of construction sites in Europe, orders for people and material lifting equipment are multiplying. According to Patrick Murris, Managing Director of the Europe and Africa Zone at Haulotte, this increase augurs that the building and construction industry is back on track. «Despite the activity slowdown due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Haulotte teams have remained close to their clients and attentive to their needs. Since then, we have seen a rise in sales activity and spare parts consumption in all our subsidiaries. Deliveries accelerate significantly to meet the growing demand, in compliance with health regulations» he says. The second half of 2020 looks promising, the Haulotte teams are motivated and ready to respond to customer needs as quickly as possible.
