Get to know Riwal

We know everything there is to know about working at height. With 55+ years of history and operations in 14 countries across the world, Riwal is the most experienced partner in powered access equipment.

Our story started in 1968 with the British crane rental firm Richards & Wallington opening a subsidiary in the Netherlands. In 1980, this company became private. The scope of operations was expanded by creating a separate company in 1986, specialising in the rental of aerial work platforms: Riwal Lift (Riwal is a combination of the first letters of Richards and Wallington). From 2007 on, we have focused exclusively on powered access solutions.
