Snorkel was founded by Art Moore in 1959. The Snorkel No. 1 allowed firefighters to shoot large amounts of water onto flames from as high as 85 ft. (25.9m). A true hero in more ways than one, our early articulating boom put out fires and set new industry standards in fire and rescue safety. 


Not only do our scissor and boom lifts raise fellow human beings high into the air, they must also safely bring them back down. And they need to do both safely and smoothly, again and again. So, our machines are engineered beyond the industry norm, to an uncommon level of safety and durability. But they’re also engineered to be simple — simple to operate and simple to maintain. Which is somewhat uncommon.


Our Mission: To achieve the height of excellence with world-class products, safety, service and value through unwavering effort, honesty and commitment.


Quality is our culture. It is built into everything we do. It is integral within our leadership, our processes, our products and our customer service. We build to the highest standard to deliver the highest quality. Anywhere around the world, Snorkel is there. Sold and serviced worldwide, our footprint includes five manufacturing plants and more than 200 distribution locations.
