After 17 months of construction, the new Haulotte headquarters in the town of Lorette, Loire, France, has been completed and recently inaugurated. Called H3, short for Haulotte Higher Headquarters, the facility is home to approximately 350 employees.
The three-storey complex, designed by architecture firm Eutopia, occupies a 31,000 sq m green site. It features three buildings - named Europe-Africa, Americas, and Asia-Pacific - reflecting the worldwide activity of the company. Connected by an immense glass roof and walkways, the buildings offer areas for interaction to encourage collaborative work. There is a business centre to host Haulotte’s partners and provide training courses developed within the new Haulotte Academy.
Adjacent to the three buildings is a 2,500 sq m covered space, which is dedicated to innovations and prototypes to develop the equipment and services of tomorrow. This space also houses a showroom to showcase Haulotte’s know-how and accommodate events for Haulotte’s customers and employees.
