During the recent Innovations Days event, Goldhofer’s handed over its fifth »Faktor 5« high girder bridge to the UK specialist Allelys Heavy Haulage.
Company Directors David and Peter Allely chose the name Hector for their high girder bridge, which has a deadweight of 100 tons and a payload-to-deadweight ratio of 5:1. Hector is now the biggest high girder bridge in Europe that can be used as both a vessel bridge and a high girder bridge. “That puts Allely’s Heavy Haulage in the Champions League in the field of heavy haulage,” said Stefan Fuchs by way of congratulations and added: “»Faktor 5« is now an established player in the high-end league of the heavy haulage market.”
According to the CEO, all the these innovations explain how Goldhofer – a family business with a tradition going back over more than three centuries – has been able to maintain its position for years as the world market leader for the most demanding transport operations. “Every euro we earn is invested in the development and production of innovative vehicles. That and our excellent workforce are the main reason why we, with our Goldhofer – the Original brand, continue to set the pace and the standard in heavy haulage technology, as in the case of our new generation of SPMTs.”
