Today MANITOU proposes the most comprehensive range on the market, in three major sectors of activities:

- industry (27% of sales in 2003)
To provide solutions adapted to the needs of professionals in these three sectors, MANITOU has successfully diversified its offer and proposes seven major, easily identifiable product ranges:
MANITOU Semi-industrial all-terrain trucks with telescopic booms
MANISCOPIC Telescopic lift trucks
MANILOADER Articulated loaders with pivoting arm
MANIACCESS Lift truck for lifting personnel
MANITRANSIT On-board trucks
MANILEC Warehousing equipment
MANIHOE Telescopic arm-handlers with back-loading shovel
The first all terrain truck was produced in 1957 and resulted from a simple and original idea: Marcel BRAUD, the company’s founder, thought of reversing the diagram of a farm tractor and giving it a lifting boom and hydraulic steering.
It was to be called MANITOU and gave its name to the family firm. Its success among users very quickly made it a generic name.less
