The Riwal story

The Riwal story

Riwal’s story is one of continual growth and evolution dating back to 1968. 
In that year, British crane rental firm Richards & Wallington opened its subsidiary in Holland. Twelve years later, the company became private. The scope of operations was expanded by creating a separate company in 1986 specialising in the rental of aerial work platforms. That firm, Riwal Lift (the name comes from the first letters of Richards and Wallington) was the forerunner of the current Riwal.

International Expansion

Recent years have seen a number of changes, beginning in 2001 with the establishment of Riwal Scandinavia in Denmark. In 2007 Riwal exited the crane rental business to focus exclusively on aerial work platforms. A period of steady expansion ensued with Riwal putting roots down all across Europe, and setting up operations as well in the Middle East, India, and Kazakhstan.

Embracing a New Way of Working

To realize our ambition of delivering the best customer experience in the industry, we embraced The Riwal Way, a business approach that incorporates best practices within and outside of our organization. We’ve identified the key drivers of the best customer experience and built and refined our processes and operations to be as efficient and effective as they possibly can be to ensure that we deliver that best customer experience each and every time.
