Mr Saubot (pictured right) received the prize from Gilles Poncet, Lyon business centre manager for Fortis Bank France, on September 25th in Lyon. He is now in the national final, which will be announced on 16 October in Paris. The award recognizes the most successful company using criteria of sustained growth in sales, profitability and employment.
The recognition came as Haulotte announced results for the first half of the year that confirmed the continued high level of demand for aerial platforms in Europe, with sales growing 30.9% to €310.2 million for the six months to 30 June. Operating profits grew by 45.9% to 58.8 million and Haulotte confirmed its July forecast of 25% growth this year.
