The Volcke group has been active for decades in the agricultural mechanization, and obtained back in 1991 the dealership for MANITOU-machinery. The primary goal was to introduce the new MLT telehandler range in the agricultural midst. Soon it turned out that these machines could redeem the high expectations on commercial and aftersales levels, thanks to their impeccable qualities like reliability and durability. The 'red' machines quickly became the ruling benchmark in the sector.
Next to the MLT-range the VOLCKE company took on the distribution of the entire range of MANITOU machinery and this for the province of West-Flanders. This was a new challenge and important step in the growth of the company. To sustain these plans a new workshop and parts warehouse were constructed. All of this with the intention to serve our clients even more swiftly and efficient.
In 1997 the company started offering MANITOU machinery for renting purposes. In 1999 the renting offer was expanded with the new MANI-ACCESS range (elevated booms, scissors lifts and caterpillars). At this time the renting activities grew to such extent a new expansion of the company was bound to happen.
This time a new location was chosen for the second affiliation ; named VOLCKE RENTING, right next to the busy E17 Highway in Deerlijk. From thereon out all the renting activities are being coordinated. The staff of the renting division also vouches for the commercialization of the Manitou mani-access range and the entire fork-lift truck range by Manitou.
