History of Manitou Group

History of Manitou Group


  " Why not turn round the shape of a farm tractor and add to it a lifting mast and hydraulic steering ? "
Behind any great success story you can find one strong, simple idea.
One day in 1957, Marcel Braud, the founder of Manitou, thought up the principle of an original device.

Thus the world’s first rough-terrain forklift-truck was born. It proved the company’s success and led to it becoming world famous.
