Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Back during the year 1946, Wally Johnson began to create the markets for the aerial work platforms and scaffold towers all by himself. He accomplished this by starting a company which became UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was an extremely skilled mechanical engineer who hailed from Berkeley, CA. He stumbled upon access machines when he started searching for a solution to painting his home.

While Mr. Johnson was embarking on his home painting project, he had a fruitless search for scaffolding that can deal with the uneven terrain that surrounded his home. After being very unsatisfied with his options, he decided to design his own aluminum scaffold tower together with adjustable legs.

During that very same year, the Snorkel Company was established in St. Joseph, Missouri. The company was responsible for introducing a revolutionary new elevating boom lift to the market. The equipment was made for firefighting and rescue work. In less than 2 decades, the technology had developed into self-propelled boom lifts.

In the year 1977, Snorkel sold its first self-propelled lift. This specialized product line did not take long to become the company's main business.

Wallace Johnson rapidly catapulted to the top of the business with his new scaffold. After he had attained this field, he decided to start all over and create the world's first self-propelled aerial lift.

During the year 1972, Mr. Johnson opened a new factory within Selma. There he manufactured the "Flying Carpet" scissor lift. After this exciting and new machinery exploded onto the marketplace, the ground-breaking product soon out-ranked the scaffolding component as the main source of income of the company.

During 1980, Wallace Johnson passed away, while the company, UpRight Inc. was sold at that time too. Mr Johnson's inventive and pioneering spirit did continue to live on. During 1994, UpRight introduced the very first micro-scissor within the globe. They went on to pioneer the TM12, which is the self-propelled mast lift.
