Maintenance and hire
In addition to its in-house equipment maintenance team of ten mechanics based in the company’s workshops, WANTY took over in July 2005 the Ateliers Marcel Lambert (AML), one of the best known names in the region for the maintenance, repair, sale and hire of civil engineering machinery, hoists and handling equipment. The strategic acquisition gives all the Group’s companies access to machinery which is state of the art and fully maintained.
The repair and hire of civil engineering machinery was the original basis of the AML’s business. Today, the servicing, maintenance, hire or sale of new or used civil engineering machinery is one of the main segments of the business, growing by over 15% in 2007
Since 2006, AML has added a hoists/handling division to its main business and has become the official regional agent for Manitou. With a fleet of over 100 machines, AML can offer short and long-term hire (full service).
Civil engineering and handling are very specific fields in which the company has acquired extensive expertise. The skilled engineers and state of the art equipment at its disposal enable AML to service and maintain not only the machinery used by the Wanty Group, but also that owned or hired by its many other customers.
Founded in 1958, in a barn, Marcel Lambert’s business will this year celebrate 50 years of operations.
The anniversary will be celebrated fittingly with the opening of a workshop extension of over 500 m², in response to the strong growth of the « hoists/handling » division, and the construction of a brand new building to house the staff canteen and lavatories. Since joining the Wanty Group, AML has doubled its staff and its turnover.Société:
