Haulotte, BilJax Raise Funds for Ohio Community

Sun June 28, 2009 - Midwest Edition

Haulotte Group/BilJax held a hot dog luncheon available to all employees May 20.

The event was to raise money for the community and donate it to local food banks, the Archbold Food Pantry and the Fayette Food Pantry.

“We heard the Fayette Food Pantry is fairly new and struggling a little bit. We wanted to help there too,” said Lyle Fogerty, plant manager of Haulotte Group/BilJax in Archbold, Ohio. “Any money raised helps. Fifty dollars raised is 100 cans of food that can help stock the food bank shelves”.

This is not the first time that the company has held events to give back to the community. At Christmas time, a sloppy joe lunch was held to raise money for the Christmas for Kids charity in Fulton County, Ohio. When the community is in a time of need, Haulotte Group/BilJax is there to answer the call and help when possible.

Innovation, creativity, and imagination have allowed Haulotte Group to become a global manufacturer of material lifting equipment. With the acquisition of BilJax, one of the most recognized names in the rental industry, the product line has expanded to include frame, system, and utility scaffolds, trailer mounted boom lifts, vertical and material lifts, contractor equipment and event staging and seating. Together, Haulotte Group and BilJax complete a full line of access equipment for North America and the World.
