Reaching for the sky

All over the world urbanisation continues apace, and the construction
of more housing and office buildings intensifies the demand on industrial
equipment. Customers want safe and durable vehicles. Horyong meets this
need by designing aerial lift cranes that combine the highest level of design
with the highest level of quality.

“Most of the steel that we use in our vehicles is SSAB’s high-strength steel.
When we design our truck-mounted aerial lifts and ladder cars for operations in high places, we use 90 to 95 percent Strenx steel in the equipment,” says Soo-jeong Lee, Senior Researcher at Horyong.

Truck-mounted aerial lifts are mainly used in construction and other work
sites that are situated in high places, such as building maintenance. The vehicles improve access to high buildings, lifting heavy material and moving heavy objects. With 28 years of R&D efforts, Horyong produces the tallest ladder and aerial lift vehicles in South Korea, the highest of these reaching up to 75 metres.
