IAF 2017


We attended the most famous exhibition for railway maintenance, based in Münster – Germany. The 4’AXE and LOR’AXE units kept dragging the interest of many attendees from across the globe looking for a versatile and efficient way of maintaining the catenary and performing jobs at height. This year again has been a great success with a lot of future project for our railway division. See you in 2019 Münster !


APEX 2017


Despite a harsh weather we were once again present during APEX in Amsterdam during the first week of May. We displayed the antipodes: our 091F (9 meters boom mounted on Renault Trafic 2.9T GVW) and the 354TBE (35meters boom mounted on Scania 18T GVW) alongside the POSI 500 launched during ICOLIM 2017 the week before. A true representation on France Elevateur’s know how when it comes to aerial platforms.


ICOLIM, the mecca of live work, theatre of all innovation when it comes to safer and more efficient work on medium and high voltage. As a proud Gold sponsor France Elevateur was present during the conferences, in the inside area with a booth and on the outside area with three amazing machines. The self-propelled award winning 400kV insulated 172ATBI unit and its medium /high voltage truck mounted version the 172TBI.

We also announce during this event a freshly signed partnership with POSI+ (Canadian Manufacturer of insulated aerial platform according to ANSI 92.2 norm). The result is the POSI 500, a stunning 19 meters working height Category A boom mounted on MAN 4×4 TGM 18.340. France Elevateur is now official integrator of POSI+ product for EMEA, Russia and Indian sub-continent. ICOLIM was a wonderful success thanks to a great organization and thanks to all of the visitors who came from around the world.

See you next time in Italy.


After winning the technology prize in 2016 with the 172ATBI we will be attending the IAPA Awards 2017 in Wembley – London UK, but as guests this time.

We hope to see you all there, good luck to the participants and get ready for 2018, it’s going to be an epic year !


First exhibition with our partner GEMINI in Delhi at BAUMA INDIA, with more than 31000 participants from 30 countries over 4 days, our TOPY 11.2 mounted on TATA 407 chassis definitely caught a lot of attention for its debut in India. France Elevateur and Gemini proudly presented the first unit “Made in India” result of months of hard work.

You’ve tried it, you’ve liked it and we have many things to come. See you all in Delhi in December 2018 !


This year we introduced CURMAC ELEVACIO as our partner in Spain. For our first exhibition we attended MATELEC in Madrid where we presented two best sellers and bell known units :

The 142TPFc a 14m working height with basket capacity of 265Kg here presented on Renault Master with the “urban cut” version for extreme capacity. It will be the best partner for all kind of city center work .

The 091F a 9m working height with basket capacity of 265Kg here presented on Renault Trafic with the “urban cut” version for extreme capacity and without outriggers for more efficiency. Ideal for light duty city work / signaling or telecommunication work

Thank you for coming and showing us so much interest. See you in SMOPYC 2017.




In the heart of Germany  INNOTRANS has delivered again its full potential  in 2016. With growing demand for railway and rail/road units we settled on the outside area showing off our two catenary maintenance lorry. With interest from around the world for the 4’AXE and the LOR’AXE, these pieces of equipment are versatile, terribly efficient and represent your best partner for your catenary maintenance work. Be present in 2018 we might have something to unvail…

INNOTRANS is on the way


From September 20th to 23rd we will be attending the InnoTrans expo 2016 in Berlin, come and see our latest improvement for the railway industry at the booth : Outdoor area /430 – or inside T2/45

Product focus: 202TBI


The famous 172TBI gets a little sister, but bigger. Bespoke design for a Portuguese client, we boosted the performances from 17m to 20m in order to fit perfectly their needs. Mounted on a 4X4 heavy duty truck, it will get the job done anywhere no matter the terrain. Also fitted with a custom workshop to store tools and repair work. The insulated boom remains the same using fiber glass and silicone.

Product focus: 354 TBE


Last year we launched our 284TBE (28 meters working height) during INTERMAT in Paris, this year we go big with the 354TBE displayed for the first time during BAUMA in Munich. The unit is allowing better performance without compromising the compactness of the vehicle thanks to the sliding system of the boom which saves 1.5m off the overall length of the vehicle by storing it on the top of the vehicle’s cabin. With a telescopic JIB from 2.2m expandable to 4.7m it allows better overhang with 4 people in the basket. Mounted on a 18T GVW Scania P410 the 354TBE is the right tool if you need high performance while working in the city.
