Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Wally Johnson, back during the year 1946, created the markets for both scaffold towers and aerial work platforms all by himself. He accomplished this by establishing a company which became UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was a really skilled mechanical engineer who resided in Berkeley, CA. He stumbled upon access machinery when he began looking for a a way to paint his house.

Mr. Johnson found it hard to look for capable scaffolding when he started a home painting project. Existing scaffolding was not able to deal with the uneven ground on his land. After being very unsatisfied with his options, he decided to design his very own aluminum scaffold tower complete with adjustable legs.

The Snorkel Company was also founded the very same year within St. Joseph, Missouri. This small business helped to revolutionize the new elevating boom lift. The equipment was made for firefighting and rescue work. In less than 20 years, the technology had developed into self-propelled boom lifts.

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

It did not take long for Wallace Johnson to catapult to the top of the industry and achieve worldwide dominance with his scaffold. Once he had accomplished this field, he decided to start all over and invent the world's very first self-propelled aerial lift.

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

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