Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Wally Johnson, back in the year 1946, created the markets for both aerial work platforms and scaffold towers all by himself. He attained this by establishing a company which became UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was an extremely gifted mechanical engineer who hailed from Berkeley, California. He stumbled upon access machinery when he began searching for a solution to painting his house.

Mr. Johnson found it hard to look for capable scaffolding when he began a house painting project. Existing scaffolding could not deal with the uneven terrain on his land. After being really unsatisfied with his options, he decided to design his very own aluminum scaffold tower together with adjustable legs.

During that same year, the Snorkel Company was founded 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 twenty years, the technology had developed into self-propelled boom lifts.

In 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 quickly catapulted to the top of the business with his new scaffold. Once he had accomplished this field, he decided to start all over and invent the very first self-propelled aerial lift in the globe.

Mr. Johnson in the year 1972, opened a factory within Selma, where he made the "Flying Carpet" scissor lift. After this new and exciting machine exploded onto the marketplace, the innovative product soon out-ranked the scaffolding component as the main source of revenue of the company.

Wallace Johnson passed away in the year 1980. At that time, the company UpRight Inc. was sold but his inventive and pioneering spirit lived on. During the year 1994, UpRight launched the world's very first micro-scissors. They went on to pioneer the self-propelled mast lift, the TM12.
