Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Back during the year 1946, Wally Johnson started to create the markets for the scaffold towers and aerial work platforms all by himself. He attained this by establishing a business that was known as UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was an extremely skilled mechanical engineer who resided in Berkeley, California. He stumbled upon access equipment when he started looking for a solution to painting his house.

Mr. Johnson found it hard to look for capable scaffolding when he began a home painting project. Current scaffolding was not able to deal with the uneven terrain on his property. After being extremely unsatisfied with his options, he decided to design his own aluminum scaffold tower together with adjustable legs.

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

The very first self-propelled lift was sold by Snorkel during the year 1977. This specialized product line did not take long to become the main business for the company.

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

In the year 1972, Mr. Johnson opened a new factory within Selma. There he created 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 also. Mr Johnson's inventive and pioneering spirit did continue to live on. During 1994, UpRight introduced the world's very first micro-scissors. They went on to pioneer the TM12, which is the self-propelled mast lift.
