Our mission statement

Transforming hydraulic excavators, from the 500 kg mini excavator to the 100 ton excavator, and loaders into versatile and productive tool carriers.

Thanks to our experience, our equipment offers the peace of mind and productivity that you need.

Ensuring your productivity

Every day we are supporting you, to help improve your productivity.

To achieve this:

  • We offer solutions to change your machines, hydraulic excavators and loaders into multi-function tool-holders: save time by changing a tool in an instant, and win more contracts by executing all the types of work site requested by your customers. With our offer of mechanical and hydraulic couplers and tools, enhance your performance and your productivity by having the right tool at the right time on your vehicle.
  • We design our equipment to match the original kinematics and to respect the manufacturer’s load tables. Our new couplers provide greater day-to-day agility through the supplementary functions now available: inclination, orientation, tilt-rotator. You’ll go further in your finishing work and you’ll be able to optimise the time, equipment and workers needed on your sites.
  • We pay particular attention to offering you reliable and durable products, in order to minimise machine down time. Our presence next to you is extended through a high degree of reactivity in the event of a problem. We provide real support. For proof, our customer support department delivers 85% of spare parts orders by D+1 for any order received before mid-day.

A family owned and human dimension company

In spite of our growth and our 120 employees, we remain an agile and flexible company. We’ve kept our short decision circuits, in order to stay one jump ahead of our competitors.

Rather than many internal procedures, we always prefer independence and responsibility.

The four values that we defend every day are:

1- The sense of customer service

The entire company is working towards one priority: our customers. Without you we no longer have a reason to exist.

2- The human being

The human being is the centre of our priorities, and we try to help everyone to find their place and to develop with the company.

3- Doing better

We know that you are expecting performance in the solutions that we offer. Thus, every day, all our personnel tries to do better, to satisfy our customers.

4- Team spirit

It’s only by working collectively, with everyone involved, that our projects can succeed.
