Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Back during the year 1946, Wally Johnson started to create the markets for both the scaffold towers and aerial work platforms all by himself. He accomplished this by establishing a business that became UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was a really skilled mechanical engineer who hailed from Berkeley, CA. He stumbled upon access machinery when he began searching for a a way to paint his home.

When Mr. Johnson was embarking on his house painting project, he had a futile search for scaffolding that could handle the uneven terrain which surrounded his house. After being extremely discontented with his choices, he decided to design his own aluminum scaffold tower complete with adjustable legs.

In that very same year, the Snorkel Company was founded within St. Joseph, Missouri. The company was responsible for introducing a revolutionary new elevating boom lift to the market. The equipment was made for rescue and firefighting work. In less than 20 years, the technology had developed into self-propelled boom lifts.

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

It did not take long for Wallace Johnson to catapult to the top of the industry and attain global dominance with his scaffold. After he had attained this field, he decided to start all over and create the first self-propelled aerial lift in the globe.

In the year 1972, Mr. Johnson opened a new factory within Selma. There 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 income of the company.

In the year 1980, Wallace Johnson passed away, while the company, UpRight Inc. was sold at that time as well. Mr Johnson's inventive and pioneering spirit did continue to live on. During 1994, UpRight launched the very first micro-scissor within the globe. They went on to pioneer the TM12, which is the self-propelled mast lift.
