IAPA Award – for outstanding achievement – Josef Hollstegge04.04.2014

Our service employee, Josef Hollstegge,  is a world-renowned expert when it comes to safe handling of aerial work platforms . In honour of his outstanding achievements, Mr. Hollstegge received the distinguished “IPAF Trainer of the Year Award” at the recent IAPA Award Ceremony.

Our Managing Director, Rolf Kulawik, and the entire RUTHMANN team were extremely happy for the well-deserved recognition that Mr. Hollstegge received. After the ceremony, Mr. Kulawik made the following comment:

"We would like to congratulate Josef Hollstegge for winning this special achievement award. Uncompromised safety in design, production and operation of a work platform is a top priority at RUTHMANN. This is exactly why RUTHMANN is also an official IPAF training centre.  Mr. Hollstegge is the professional among our RUTHMANN service professionals. He has been part of the RUTHMANN team for 40 years and is actively engaged in all safety-related matters. The many training sessions that he and his colleagues continuously provide, reflect Mr. Hollstegge’s steadfast commitment to safety.  The customers understand, appreciate and trust him wholeheartedly.  Because of his expert know-how and many years of experience, Mr. Hollstegge knows our STEIGER ® work platforms and those of other manufacturers like the back of his hand.  He is very familiar with the everyday and even most unusual height access problems that can arise.”
The IAPA Awards (International Award for Powered Access) –considered by many to be the "Oscars" of the work platform industry – is the most significant award ceremony in the international work platform industry. The IAPA Awards recognize exceptional achievements and the best developments. This worldwide competition has been jointly organized by Access International and IPAF for the past six years. Over 500 industry professionals from around the world were in attendance at this year’s IAPA Awards.  The prestigious ceremony was held at the Beaumont Estate Hotel in Old Windsor, England on April 3, 2014.

STEIGERotYEAR_2013_T720_web.jpg RUTHMANN was nominated in three categories at this year’s IAPA Awards and we won the coveted prize in two of them. In addition to Josef Hollsteggethe our STEIGER ® T 720 has just won the IAPA “Product of the Year” Award. This top-of-the-range HEIGHT performance-series model made quite an impression on the international jury, leaving the competition far behind. Our HEIGHT performance-STEIGER ® T 540 won last year and our RUTHMANN STEIGER ®T 330 was the winner in 2012. Please click here for more information.
