Tradition & Innovation
J.D. Neuhaus is unique in the world of hoisting technology. It is a stable, mid-sized company. A family owned company that has maintained its independence for over 275 years. We are honourable merchants, we know our roots and we preserve our values. We have a social responsibility. Are we old-fashioned? Certainly not!
We are the world’s market leader for pneumatic and hydraulic hoists and crane solutions because to us, tradition does not mean just sticking with old solutions. On the contrary: at J.D. Neuhaus, it is a tradition to think ahead, to become better, to find new solutions and to be progressive. Acting sustainably. It is our job to move loads. For this reason alone, standing idle is not in our vocabulary.
If an engineering and manufacturing company like J.D. Neuhaus can endure the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries with a supporting idea rising up in the 21st century to become the world’s market leader, this means more than just a success story from a blacksmith to the Industrial Revolution and Industry 4.0. This is a story of continuous innovation.
Top examples: In 1952, J.D. Neuhaus made the work of our colleagues in the mines so much easier with its innovation of using a compressed air motor instead of the, at the time, conventional practice of operating hoists by hand. J.D. Neuhaus introduced a unique product to the market again in 2019: an award-wining hoist design featuring an NFC tag and a service app that helps people, in the food or chemistry industries for example, to face the challenges in their industries. Faithfully true to the motto: In order to shape the future, it is essential to understand the past.
