The idea and purpose of hybrid machines have not really changed since their introduction, but the execution of these machines has evolved significantly along with the technology that powers them.
Power systems for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) continue to evolve, just like the machines they drive.
Industry standards governing the design, use and manufacture of any aerial product will require periodic reviews, as new technologies and best practices enter the market.
Material lifts are portable aerial work platforms that offer affordable solutions for lifting, positioning and installing materials.
Mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) are used in a variety of work environments.
Increased market competition and competitive rental rates are significant challenges for rental companies.
For scale, no show in Scotland can rival the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Around the globe, capital cities and large provincial towns are going greener.
As aerial industry standards continue to become more closely aligned worldwide, manufacturers like Genie, who produce scissor lifts (a classification of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPS) named for their lifting mechanism design — a stack of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like fashion when the platform is raised and lowered) for global markets are taking a closer look at how requirements in these standards impact machine design and safe use.
“We think of BIM as a beginning-to-end concept,” says Josh Lyons, architect for The Thrasher Group, an architecture, engineering and field services company, headquartered in Bridgeport, W.Va.
In today’s competitive market, we, at Genie, know that it is more important than ever for you to establish and earn your rental customers’ respect as a trusted advisor.
Telescopic and articulating boom lifts rotate, elevate and extend multiple boom sections to help operators access difficult to reach worksites.
Technology is changing the way business the world does business.
Prior to the introduction of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in the 1970s, construction industry professionals relied almost exclusively on ladders and scaffolding to access major work at height projects.
In order for your customers to get the maximum performance out of a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), it is important that you consider what type of tire or track is best suited for their worksite environment and needs.
At Genie, our number one priority is to provide safe, productive mobile elevating work platforms for our customers.
