It’s 1946 in Hamburg
, an engineer and inventor by the name of Dr. Friedrich Jungheinrich
works with his small team in a modest workshop to develop technical solutions that will one day change the world of material handling. The first pallet trucks and transport equipment to come out of this workshop are given the name: Ameise®
Named after the German for ‘ant’, this fitted perfectly with the strong, robust and hard-working
nature of these first innovations.On 22nd October 1948, the Ameise® brand was officially created
. Dr. Jungheinrich's aim was to provide a distinctive and respected brand that would, over the years, make itself known to millions of employees in Europe and around the world.
Today, over half a century after its creation, the brand is still synonymous with reliability and endurance. The Ameise® range offers robust and practical trucks for everyday tasks in warehouses and workshops, including; manual and electric pallet trucks, scissor lifts, mobile and fixed stackers, manual and electric stackers and small platform trolleys
