The History of MIAG forklift

The history of MIAG began in 1846, when Luther Wolfenbuttel founded the flour milling machine company. In 1922, the company opened a department for the production of electric machines, and already in 1927, MIAG produced the first electric forklift of its own design. In fact, it was an electric cart with a forklift and a counterweight. In 1936, the development of explosion-proof equipment began, and two years later the first explosion-proof electric tractor was built.


During the war years, from 1943 to 1945, the MIAG plant manufactured military equipment and produced the Jagdpanther self-propelled gun (Jagdpanther), built on the basis of the Panther tank (Pz.Kpfw V Panther), and after 1945 returned "to civilian rails”, and the intensity of work on the creation of explosion-proof machines at MIAG has increased markedly. Ten years later, in 1955, the operation of the first explosion-proof electric forklift LM 1 EEX began, and in 1962, the first diesel explosion-proof forklift LM 20 DX. Both machines were designed to operate in zone 1 (possible explosive concentration of impurities during normal operation).

In 1983, the industrial forklift division of Bhler-MIAG GmbH left this group of companies and became an independent company of MIAG Fahrzeugbau GmbH. The company is currently located in Braunschweig (Lower Saxony) on an area of 20,000 m2. The production is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 (management system certification).


Today, the MIAG production program primarily includes industrial loading equipment for working in explosive environments, therefore, in addition to the usual counterbalanced forklifts, reach trucks, stackers and escorted pallet transporters, there are quite specific samples in the model range, for example, an escorted electric pallet truck with a carrying capacity of 10 tons, as well as escorted electric tractors with a pulling force of up to 10 tf.


A complete list of MIAG explosion-proof equipment includes the following items:

• fork three- and four-wheel electric loaders with a carrying capacity (g / n) from 1 to 4 tons;

• fork diesel loaders with a capacity of 1.2...4 tons;

• electric carts, stackers, reach trucks;

• platform electric trolleys with a cabin capacity up to 2.5 t;

• escorted electric tractors with a pulling force of up to 10 tf.
