What is a moment that you remember the most?
I remember when, after the opening of the Production Plant in Piekoszów, John stood on the square in the evening and shouted “ I did it !!!” – it made me realize that dreams help generate goals, so you have to fight for them.
What is so special about working at Amphitec?
At Amphitec, the people are the most important – they are the ones who create the Company, not the machines.
Amphitec was founded in 2000 by Peter Paul du Buisson and John Haesakkers. The market showed demand for an efficient solution to transport roof ballast. The machines at the time were expensive, unable to work at great heights and offered limited payload. The Amphitec Max-Loader was born on the drawing board, a revolutionary solution in Europe. This efficient vacuum/pressure solution offered an additional 50% loading volume, a better distribution of weight across the machine’s axles, a fuel saving of 50% and a high-performance vacuum pump from Aerzen, the pump supplier. This made it possible to work at great heights. This machine caught on and many were sold in a short period of time. The passion for developing efficient solutions runs like a common thread in our history.
