Snorkel Boom Lifts

Snorkel Boom Lifts

Back in the year 1946, Wally Johnson began to create the markets for both the aerial work platforms and scaffold towers all by himself. He did this by starting a company which was called UpRight. Mr. Wally Johnson was an extremely skilled mechanical engineer who lived in Berkeley, California. He stumbled upon access machines when he began looking for a solution to painting his home.

Mr. Johnson found it hard to look for capable scaffolding when he began a home painting project. Current scaffolding could not handle the uneven terrain on his property. After being really discontented with his options, he decided to design his own aluminum scaffold tower together with adjustable legs.

In that same year, the Snorkel Company was established in St. Joseph, Missouri. The company was responsible for introducing a revolutionary new elevating boom lift to the market. The machine was produced for rescue and firefighting work. In less than twenty years, the technology had developed into self-propelled boom lifts.

The first self-propelled lift was sold by Snorkel during 1977. This particular 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 business and achieve global domination with his scaffold. When he had accomplished this field, he decided to start all over and create the world's first self-propelled aerial lift.

During 1972, Mr. Johnson opened a new factory in Selma. There he made the "Flying Carpet" scissor lift. After this exciting and new machine exploded onto the marketplace, the innovative product soon out-ranked the scaffolding component as the company`s main source of income.

Wallace Johnson passed away during 1980. At that time, the company UpRight Inc. was sold but his inventive and pioneering spirit lived on. In the year 1994, UpRight introduced the world's very first micro-scissors. They went on to pioneer the TM12, that is the self-propelled mast lift.
