J.D.Neuhaus was originally founded by a man named Johann Diederich Conrad Neuhaus back in 1745 when he first built a wooden shaft winch. It was from there that the company began as he became a registered fabricator. They originally produced winches for the barges and locks on the local river and later expanded into the railway industry. It was in 1952 that they designed and made their own air hoist which gave them the cutting edge when it came to supplying to the mining industry. With over 270 years of industry experience and knowledge they are one of the world’s market leaders in pneumatic and hydraulic hoists. It was because of them that working in mines became easier and safer, providing a hoist which would not need to be operated manually but would also not cause a spark danger.
