ATN was founded in 2000 in Tonneins (South West of France), with the aim of developing a new product in the aerial work platforms sector: a track mounted vertical mast called PIAF.
Its founders benefit from experience acknowledged worldwide, since they are at the origin of the invention of the
vertical mast on wheels, designed at the very beginning of the 1990s : the Toucan.
During the first years of the 2000s, ATN developed its range of vertical masts in several different heights, on wheels or on tracks.
The company’s philosophy is clear: design and build machines that meet the specific needs of its clients : the rental companies.
The main characteristics of the machines designed for rental are as follow:
– Performance, sturdiness and reliability, for a long life cycle
– Easy maintenance, requiring few technical skills and time
– Low cost maintenance, with the use of standard parts that are not captive
Following the success of this first range of machines, the company decided in 2009 to start production of diesel articulated booms.
