The Comabi Story

20 March 2008

When it was founded 52 years ago, Comabi's products were mobile access towers. In the early 80s it entered the façade scaffolding business and today aluminium and steel mobile towers make up just 30% of its business, with steel scaffolding systems about 70%.

The company also makes ladder–type material elevators and a small line of vertical mast industrial powered access platforms. Exports are 8% of total sales, and 85% of those are to distributors in Spain, Benelux, and the UK.

The company is part of the €224 million, 1300 employee Zarges–Tubesca Group, based in France. The group manufactures a range of ladders, scaffolding, mobile towers, and work platforms, and it claims to be worldwide number–two in non–powered products for height access.
